Love it. It's the only glass I use these days! Awesome for beer, as well.

Just seeing this thread for the first time with today's posts. Is the deal/coupon for WB announced back in April still happening?

David - I just sent you a note regarding an issue with one of the 4 glasses I had ordered and used it for the first time last night. Please PM me if you are able to help replace the glass. Thank you.

I just ordered a pack of 8, apparently great stuff and David gave us Berserkers a killer deal. I learned about these through Fu, texting me about it for a purpose. He’s the only person to ever come to my home and - while I’m serving him dinner and Gonon VV and Juge - he’s bitching about my shitty wine glasses! Lol.

David do you have a decanter yet?

Sounds like the 4 I ordered just after the initial sell out in March are finally coming this week. If I enjoy them as much as everyone else seems to be, they’ll likely become my everyday glasses, given the solid replacement cost

Hi! We are designing a decanter right now.
But don’t hold your breath.

I’ll repost my GLASVIN thoughts here from a TN thread:

I've had them for a week now and enjoyed a sparkling, red, and now this white with the glasses. I try not to be a super fussy person when it comes to stems; the Spiegelau AUTHENTIS are my daily-use glasses around the house and they get the job done. What I really like about this glass, aside from its weight and build quality, is the classically shaped lower bowl area; I think it works best with ~2-3 oz of wine - smaller amounts at a time - that allow the wine to really take advantage of the airspace and gradual taper to the rim. I think the calling card for GLASVIN is balance; I don't think it emphasizes any one particular quality or style of wine per se, but offers a really enjoyable overall drinking experience.

Doing an A-B with the Spiegelau, the GLASVIN offered a noticably more expressive "bottom end" of the EQ spectrum; the deeper qualities of the wines, especially the delicate white, were more evident and provided for a more harmonious nose. For me, the price makes this an absolute no-brainer; there is not a cheaper, better quality handblown stem on the market that I know of. As someone on a budget, that alone makes these incredibly attractive. The only quibble I could see folks having is that the base is the same size or slightly wider than the bottom of the bowl which makes it a tad less elegant than other upscale glassware, but the stability and sturdiness it provides outweigh any aesthetic concerns I (do not) have.

Side note: my extremely well-meaning but clumsy partner decided to generously take the initiative to wash them and she ended up breaking one in the process (hold them gently by the bowl, whatever you do!). I e-mailed David to ask if I could replace the glass for the same WB promo price with the full understanding that it wasn't obligatory; David responded within 15 minutes and not only did he honour the original price, he also waived the shipping cost for the new glass. Absolutely above and beyond the call of duty and GLASVIN will likely be my new "fancy" glass of choice for the foreseeable future for both the quality and value offered as well as the peerless customer service.

Is the $25 per stem for a set purchase still on?

Hi, it's 8 for $200 with the discount code WINEBERSERKERS. It's a bit more for lower quantities!

Thanks. Will give them a try as it seems too often that I find ways to break my Grassls, Zaltos Riedels, Schott-Zweisels. Just the generic thick Corning glasses don't seem to break. Why is that? (Rhetorical question; attempt at humour).

Oh please, let’s keep this in perspective. While I may be old, and Fu may be young, I remain the aging lion with the physique and wisdom to crush the soul of the young up-start. He’d prolly show up yet again in some baggy Lululemons and joggers whilst Alfert is sporting his tight cycling lycra, coiffed to Euro-perfection, Lance Oakleys for the Lance stare, total game day. This is not competition. It’s like sending in Lance Bass to battle Mike Tyson. I will concede that after two or more bottles each, both of us sober-drunk but energized - and we’ve done that together more than once - he can definitely eat more than me at 2:15 AM. That boy has a tapeworm.

Glasses arrived today, will be taking them for a test drive tonight. One interesting thing, the base on one of the 4 glasses has a larger diameter than the other 3, meaning that while 3 fit well in my racks, the base on the single larger one excludes me from being able to hang it.

A few hours in and I’m a big fan of the size, weight and feel. For the price, will definitely become our daily use glass I think. Just bought 8 more!

8 just arrived - shout out to UPS for “not making it here” on Saturday, but luckily in the ‘rona era it’s not like we were hosting a party or anything. Size and weight are perfect for daily drinking, and at $25/pop, I won’t fret over breaking one every once in a while or worry about putting them in the dishwasher with other dishes. Taking the 8 I planned to give to my parents and will order them more!

The box and custom molded foam are great too, if you’re a bring your own stem kinda fella.

Mine arrived on Saturday before the "Your Order has Shipped" email was sent. My cabinet is mish-mash of glassware, but my usual glasses are Lehmann Oeno (hand made) and Champagne (machine). The Glasvin is thinner than the Lehmann, but the large base makes it feel secure. These are wonderful glasses at an attractive price point.
I will continue using the Lehmann whenever we start entertaining again - whenever that may be - because they fit perfectly in the dishwasher and they aren't too tall.

For those who are curious, I took this photo. Left is Zalto BDX, middle is Glasvin, right is Zalto white. It was nice to just toss it in the dishwasher after dinner last night... Apologies for the background ... was the best solid color background I could find in 15 seconds...

Nice to hear so many positive early impressions on the GLASVIN. I have some coming. But the almost cavalier attitude towards handling them (e.g. not fretting about breaking one every once in a while, or tossing them in the dishwasher) makes me shudder a bit. My long time wine glasses are Reidels which are reasonably sturdy and decent, but these GLASVIN glasses will be something special for us just like our GRASSL glasses. And I'll handle them the same way - like cradling a newborn baby! Come to Papa!

The “throwing it in the dishwasher” isn’t about how the glass feels ... it’s about the replacement cost in real dollars compared to Zalto (along with how annoyed I’d be at myself for being lazy if I broke a Zalto in the dishwasher). It’s probably why I will use these so much more often than the Zalto (and thus, why it’s arguably the better buy).

Just bought four. I know that most comments refer to washing the glasses in the dishwasher. For the Glasvin as well as Grassal. I just find it hard to do so.
So I end up breaking them by hand washing.

Just got mine. Nice look and hand feel to the glasses and I am looking forwarding to trying them out. Very impressed with the packaging and enclosed information. Classy.

Another shout out and thanks to David for incredible customer service. Ordered 8 on Wednesday directly from David as a gift for a wedding shower tomorrow, arrived today ready for wrapping. Kind, generous and fast. Of course, I've yet to see or try them but my expectations are high based on this thread.

Excellent glasses, ordered 8 and grabbing more.

Size is just perfect, versatile for reds and whites.

Just received mine on Saturday and drank through some rose and Chianti. Very nice, with a sturdier feel than my GGGs. I think I still prefer the GGGs by a hair but it’s hard to beat the QPR and the service was spot on.

GGG is lighter.

My measurements, obviously there's variation:
GGG: 86g
Glasvin: 100g
Zalto Universal: 105g
JR: 105g

Ordered 8 GLASVINs ... 7 of them are 100g +/- 2g ... one of them is 111g (and feels perceptibly heavier).

Zalto BDX are around 123g +/- 2g whereas Zalto white is about 85g +/- 2g.

FWIW Riedel Red/BDX (it’s like a red universal ... don’t know exactly what model) is 163g ... only weighed one of them.

Riedel's feel like paperweights compared to GV, GGG and Zalto.

I am waiting until I smash up all my older Riedels so I can order these. Remember back in the day when Reidels seemed like a revelation compared to the terrible glasses of the 90's.

David - if i place an order this week - when will they ship? Have a socially distanced wine event coming up with lots of Berserkers and collectors attending. Thought I would share with the Chicago wine crowd.
