****FEB 22, 2019 Update at 11 AM CST*****

The glasses are in my possession. Order fulfillment will take place this weekend and shipments will begin.

There is a second batch inbound and I'll reach out to those who have their fulfillment taking place in that batch, looks to be about 30 orders, potentially 50.

Thanks for the update Chris! I can only imagine how many glasses you've had to ship since BDX. Looking forward to seeing and holding the glasses in hand.

Planning on ordering more once I figure out which ones I like more.

Hat tip to the USPS for those Friday quick turns.


BTW - Broken glass happens. That's on me. Just PM me or email me and I'll send replacements.

The boxes used in this order flow are NOT our permanent boxes. We're going to a tube. Those tubes are on the water to me with more glasses. I am accepting a higher break rate to get stems out faster. But, future orders will all be in a very nice, reusable (offline events..cough) cardboard tube with a sealed aluminum bottom and a friction fit top.

I'm still at the office, but my wife just called to ask if I had ordered anything recently because we received a large and yet lightweight box from Chasing Alpha, LLC? (with an audible question mark on the end). I said, yes, I know what those are [cheers.gif]

Was worried when I saw the boxes and unwrapped each glass hesitantly, but all made the journey just fine.

Got my Libertes yesterday and really enjoyed the Marguet Rose out of it today. Super glass, very similar to the GGG.

Nice work, Chris. I think I will regret not buying more.

Chris, received my glasses today in perfect condition. Thank you. I am trying them out right now, and I have A question- I know this is lead free crystal. Is it titanium crystal- they seem to flex like that kind of glass.

Jim, no they are not. But our factory does a multiple cycle heat/cool regimen. Glass, like steel, develops crystalline structures which can give everything from brittle to flexible. Those cycles of heat/cool help create some 'bounce' in the glass.

Thanks. So in your opinion, or better yet experience, does that production process make the glass more resistent to eacy breakage? These glasses, the 1855 I have, are incredibly light, and I am almost scared to look at them for fear of breaking! But then I noticed the flex. Interesting. BTW, tried them with a very young cab-Anderson Conn Valley 2017 (no typo) napa cabernet, and it/they showed great!

6 each of Mineralite and 1855 showed up yesterday. Unfortunately 2 broken 1855s in the box. I didn't even have to unwrap the paper to know, unfortunate, but it happens. Chris - I'll reach out via PM with more info and pics.

On a positive note, I am doing a my first run in the mineralite with a local rose and it is drinking phenomenally! I will definitely be expanding my collection with the liberte and cru in the very near future.

I received my shipment of 6 glasses each of Mineralite and 1855. Unfortunately, one glass of each was broken. Chris - I'll PM you, too.

The glasses feel really nice, though - looking forward to enjoying wine with them.

Took the Liberte for a test drive last night with my tasting group. Really nice. Reminds me a lot of the Zalto Universal, but a more manageable size.

And I got the replacement for a broken Liberte less than 48 hours after reporting it to Chris -- so kudos for that.

More importantly, after 7+ years my Scansnap S1300 is still working like a champ. Thanks again.

Glasses arrived a day early in perfect condition. They look gorgeous. The Liberte looks quite similar to the Gabriel Gold glass but is even lighter. The 1855 resembles the Zalto Bordeaux but is lighter. I like the wide bases, too. The Cru looks like a great alternative to the huge Zalto Burgundy and the Mineralite is no slouch either. They all look and feel elegant, very nicely designed to enhance one's wine appetite. Very nice, Chris!

Liberte with Jose Michel Champagne last night and this will be my new Champagne glass. Perfect size and the narrower mouth really focuses the aromatics. Quite happy with these glasses.

Mine finally showed up safe and sound. Can’t wait to try those beautiful Cru glasses. I already know that 1855 is great for Cab Zin etc.
I’m sure I’ll regret not having also bought Mineralite and Liberte.

#191 Post by Chris Freemott » March 3rd, 2019, 6:42 pm

All,
Thank you for the feedback and kind words. As of tomorrow all orders capable of being shipped will be in the hands of the freight folks chosen by me. There are approximately 30 of you with no gifts on the way...yet. I have another 2000 glasses (WB day was an astonishing 2050 glasses sold!) on the water now with a 3 week arrival timeline.

Behind that are the decanters AND a new glass we are launching which is designed for tasting rooms. It's a miniature of the 1855, handblown and a tad more sturdy for the industrial rigors.

For those of you 'skunked' in this first shipping round. I'll send you each notes during this week. I'm on the road for work. But each of you will also be given a gift option for your patience.

I did everything I could to put at least a glass in everyone's hands but we simply sold too many of the 1855 and the Cru. Further, a forklift did me no favors on arrival and took out 48 of the initial 500 and we've had about 10 die in transit.

I've had some very important constructive comments come in from several of you and I appreciate your willingness to share with me first, but do not fear pointing out your concerns on this forum. We need to learn. We need to create a great glass.

These are key things I want to make sure everyone is aware of:

1 - Bubbles are not acceptable. Scan your stem. If you have them. Email me. That's a replacement event.
2 - Commentary about consistency in the glass walls and visual "waves" when the glass is spun. That's a replacement event.
3 - Commentary about the edge of the Cru glass at the lip. This is a challenging glass to blow and sand and cut. We have made process modifications to address this. The complaint/comment can be the edge is almost sharp. If you feel you have a glass that is too sharp - email me. I'll get you a newly manufactured one in a month. That's a replacement event.



To the glasses on the water. I also have our final packaging inbound as part of that. What each of you received was an industrial carton (white) or my "hack a pack" solution using a Uline box to repack single stems. The final packaging is a very elegant cardboard tube. I'll post pictures of them later this week. But, it is an ivory white color with our was seal logo on it with the specifications of the glass on the back. These tubes also have an aluminum base that is rolled into the cardboard tube. If you have a can of peanuts or coffee in your cupboard or can visualize an integrated bottom, that is what we went with. The top is a friction fit plastic cap. The bottom of our tubes are made of aluminum and the tubes are designed to be reusable with an intent of making them completely viable offline carry containers to protect your stem. There is more about this aspect on the design table and I hope to have something to release tying into this concept in a few months.

To any of you who wish to have some tubes, email me and I'll send you some - gratis. Just tell me what you want (the glass name/type) and how many.

The concept of a 'pay it forward' packaging solution has been nearly finalized with production hopefully starting in a few weeks. I'll be creating a reusable, durable, safe case which can travel the country and protect either 4 or 8 glasses at a time. If you want to see what one of these look like, I've retained this firm: www.returnity.co

If you go to their site, the bottom has an example of a a Returnity package.

We will be integrating significant rigidity components to make this case impact safe from 12 feet.

The purpose of this bag is two-fold. I want those of you who don't get to hold glasses in this market space for a minimal fee and I want to supply my glasses to those of you looking to host offline events. The fee for this bag is going to be limited to shipping and should not exceed $40.00 for an 8 pack of glasses. If any sales result from the use of the sample kit, shipping will be comp'd.

There is more coming from Grassl in the very near future beyond our new 'industry' glass and the shipping kit. Stay tuned, please remain as patient as you have all been and I'll get those glasses out to you the minute they land.
-

Thank you all, very, very much, for the amazing demand for this new glass. Please keep the feedback, good and bad, coming.

Chris, were the actual stems of the glasses redesigned to be thinner? Have to say that I like them quite a bit better, both functionally and aesthetically.
Yes and no. We made some last minute, on the fly adjustments to the techniques with the factory. We had our samples lose, on average, 40% of their weight from our first trial runs. We asked for some tweaks to the lip polishing after a few hundred were run on the Cru (see above post) and keep in mind, these are made by humans so there is always a variance to the glasses.

We found it amazing how easy it is for the human hand to differentiate between a 4MM and a 5MM stem but we like the durability of the 5MM. Of the thousands of Zalto's I've sold, it's the stem where the failure is 95% of the time, not the bowl. We seek to reduce that by increasing the stem 25%.

The bowls are all on a tight spec of being 1MM thin..That QC requirement slows our production rate and decreases yields but we like the result. Now we need to figure out how durable they are. Like other stems, but, to my knowledge, unlike Zalto, our glasses also go through a multiple phase heat/cool cycle to bring some 'bounce' to the glass by adjusting the crystal structure to be more resilient and less brittle.

I have been using the mineralite and cru as my go to glasses for whites and reds, respectively. I own gg and zalto glasses but have preferred the Grassl. I’ve run both through the dishwasher and they’ve done well.

I tested the Cru on a Rhys and was amazed how the aromas were far more concentrated and focused than what I’m used to.

Chris, I love the idea of your tubes and as I plan to use 6 packs of your glasses for future events I’d love to have them for 1855 and Cru. Hopefully my future purchases of the other two glasses will come that way, otherwise I’ll ask for those as well.

Tried the Cru with a 2016 Vincent Armstrong Vineyards Pinot Noir and that really showcased this excellent wine. The glass is so light and elegant, just perfect with the wine. It is going to be getting a lot of use.

Just got my Mineralités and Libertés! Checking them more thoroughly now but it appears only one Mineralité is broken. I’ll PM you Chris.

I have had my 1855's for a while now. Wow, I like these a lot! I wish the base was a bit smaller so I could hang them in my wine cabinet, but not a deal breaker at all. My GG's and Reidels haven't seen the light of day since these arrived. Thanks Chris! champagne.gif

Okay, all these reports on how much better wine tastes out of these glasses has triggered a FOMO attack. What's the latest on shipping? Thanks

Stephen, 3/15/19 is the word from Schenker on USA arrival. so, call it 2 weeks or so from there to get them out...WHICH...of course, has a flaw...I'm in Bordeaux 3/30 - 4/7 for E.P. Working on coordinating an alternative to me overseeing all of this while I travel. I have to play that by ear as the arrival in the US also needs the glasses to get to Chicago then to me...I've had that take 3 days...and 17...when they land I'll have more updates.
