I was hoping to test these in advance, but missed out - however the nice vids posted convinced me to take 6xCru, so looking forward to them. Best of luck with the venture Chris.

I'm going in for 6 of the 1855s. Chris was gracious enough to let me try all four, and while I like them all in varying degrees, the 1855s suits my wine preferences best: Bordeaux, Chinon, and I think that they show well with Northern Rhone, too. The glasses are excellent quality as well.

Hmm, the decanter looks interesting . . . .

I don't even vaguely need wine glasses, nor did I get a sample, but I'm still in for 12 of the 1855s. Trust Chris, and the replacement idea is interesting. We don't break very many glasses (knock wood), but it's definitely reaffirming. Thinking/hoping these will replace my current "everyday" glasses, Speiglau Bordeaux Hybrids, which are dead ringers in shape, if not weight and feel, for the Zaltos I admit I'm too paranoid to use regularly. (Which, yes, IS dumb, since we've never broken one, but hard to break habit of just reaching for still-pretty-good cheaper stems "just in case".)

ive been looking for burg stems for awhile now (usually reach for gabriels for everything else). was a bit late to the game on the trials but the generous pricing, return and breakage policy, and my past experience getting my gabriels from Chris makes this seem like no downside. picked up a dozen Cru.

thanks!

I keep on switching between the 1855 and cru. Which is better for northern Rhône Syrah. I need the best for that piedmont and Pinot noir.

Chris, I am sorry to be so thick headed but I still don't get how to order the ZALTO glasses. Last year I ordered 8 Universal and use them all the time. I am still not convincented they are really suitable as Champagne glasses so I need 6 ZALTO CHAMPAGNE [cheers.gif] . Would you please be so kind to send me the link and I will gladly place the order. LOVE THEM ZALTO's.

Michael. It’s not you. Supply of Z is challenging. So I’ve yanked anything I’m worried about getting in that isn’t on the water, or in my hand. Send me a private note and I’ll see if I can assist.

I have to say Chris, based on sampling a few of the glasses at Rieslingfeier, this is a better price than I thought you could get to. Couldn’t resist at that price- will feel more comfortable about everyday use than I do with Zaltos. My wife opted for the Mineralité.

Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to the forum and happen to be in need of some wine glasses after breaking quite a few Zaltos over the Holidays. After reading everyone's reviews, I'm really excited to try these out when they come in! (ordered a few of each glass)

Well that pushed me over the edge.

I had planned to buy 4 GGGs and 6 Standarts today but was disappointed by the significantly higher price of the Gabes compared to last year's prices. Since I don't know as much about the Grassls, I went with 2 Libertes and 2 1855s to try them out. I don't know how long you plan to offer the $25 price, but if you raise prices soon, I hope that the glasses are so good that I regret not getting more at this price :)

PS this is my first post. I found this site Googling for reviews of wine glasses since I was disappointed with my experience of the Wirecutter's suggestion. Y'all are a wealth of knowledge. [thankyou.gif]

Does anyone have the 1855 also have the Sophienwald Reds? I want to replace my Spiegelau Bordeaux glasses and the 1855s almost look as wide as the SW Reds. Thinking I might do the Liberté instead and replace the Spiegelau and Schott white glasses I have/

Just paid, lighting fast check-out with PayPal. Free shipping. Replacement policy. Satisfaction guaranteed. Cool dude owner. What's not to love. Place your order!

I tried all 4 glasses, and for the majority of what I drink - Bordeaux, Chinon, Northern Rhones - the 1855s gave me the best versatility.

Thanks, Chris! Killer Berserker deal and fun to try.

Last year’s GG price was crazy low, I stocked up 25% is still a good discount.

Ordered Cru glasses.

Chris is on a plane and having a hard time getting a response through so he asked me to post this.

I dont know. But if you go to the Grassl site and look at the schematics the red line at the width marker is also roughly a full line. At that line we are approx 4 US ounces

Hope it helps... and that BTW is great Customer Service. champagne.gif

Is this a good general rule for glasses that full line is at or below widest width? Or is that a way too general statement?

Good rule
Of thumb objective was to have max surface area at a normalize pour amount. However European pours appear to lower than American.
