Re: Grassl Glassware

Susan - email and photo sent.
Tasting stem is 21.4 CM tall, 8.4CM in diameter. As your question is about the base, the 1855 is 4" in diameter, the tasting glass is 3.375" in diameter. Hopefully that .625" helps with the cabinet you have.

Re: Grassl Glassware

Hello
Yes. sorry for the delays on this. Marcus, your 1099 is in the mail for the PR efforts. :)

Mineralité is an acidic wine's friend
Liberté is a much more universal wine glass

Based on what you have up there, go M. Remember, i buy them back if you don't like them.

Tasting glass will come in at 120 grams

Zalto Bordeaux is 119-124
