Robb Report Collection highlights Gabriel Glas – February 2015

The Robb Report is noted for their detailed and informative opinions on all things luxurious, and one of their editors, Michalene Busico, has said this about our glass:

“For the last 20 years, one mark of a serious wine connoisseur has been a
cabinet spilling over with specific glasses for every varietal. But lately
a backlash against this tyranny of stemware has taken hold, and a number of
fine-glass makers have responded with “universal” designs meant to enhance
every sort of wine. One of the best is the One for All by Gabriel-Glas
(Gold Eiditon, $ 55 per stem; winegls.com). Mouth-blown in Slovakia from a
design by the wine critic René Gabriel, its broad bowl increases the
surface-to-air ratio, essentially decanting the wine in the glass, while its
graceful curve channels aromas to the nose and gently delivers wine to the
tongue. All for One’s fans include influential sommeliers such as Mark
Bright of Saison and Luke Kenning of Farallon, and after testing the glasses
with wines from Barolo to Riesling, we too found ourselves reaching for this
delicate vessel over the many others crowding the shelf.”

Testimonials
“ While traveling through the Left Bank {Bordeaux, France}, we kept noticing these glasses at tastings… We've been totally delighted with the glasses. Not only does the shape help deliver aromatics for the variety of wines we drink (and does a good job at trapping tannins in the bottom), they look elegant, and are surprisingly steely for such delicate-looking glasses. We put them in the dishwasher, we (accidentally) bang them into things, and nary a crack.”
