Forum rules
Forum rules
Not 'Rules', necessarily, but here's how BerserkerDay goes:

I'll be launching offers in groups of 8-10, in increments of 30 minutes. Sponsors will stay pegged at the top of the forum all day, each new group of offers will come in at the top with them for their launch grouping, cycling into the 'normal' thread after their launch time has passed, with a new launch group posted atop the thread thereafter. Discussion is encouraged, as posting replies moves the thread up to the top of the grouping, whether that is during launch time group or the 'regular' forum.

Keep checking in every 30 minutes for new offers being posted, and keep scrolling down to see everything that has been launched throughout the timeframe in which you've been on the forum, which hopefully is ALL DAY

Ordered more of these glasses. I would like to say- the customer service is top notch. I broke a couple and Chris was fast to replace. Love these glasses. I’m an 1855 fan. But, my wife wanted something smaller- so just ordered some Liberte’s

Chris can the Voyage+ hold 4 Cru glasses, or is it only designed to hold one of each of the various glass types?

Thanks :)

Got 4 of the 1855. Turns out the 8 I got last year was not enough. None broke, which is quite a testament to the quality, as these are so light and thin. Needed more for bigger gatherings, which we hope to have this year.

Great glasses and great deal!

Chris, heads-up, if you had a case that carried 2 glasses and a bottle I would absolutely be in.

Oh, this. A carrier for 2 glasses + 1 bottle, or 4 glasses + 2 bottles would be very, very intriguing. (NOTE: Saw the work around you mentioned Chris, but still interested in a bottle + glass combo carrier if you develop one.)

Edited to Add: Can't say enough good things about Chris' service or the Grassl glasses. Our definite go to and Chris has gone above and beyond to make sure we still have any left despite 2 dogs, 2 klutzes and 1 wild kid.

Nola, try the Cru if you don't have it. It's my preferred glass for Pinot, Gamay, Nebbiolo, and Chard-based wines, as well as a lot of other light reds and Champagne. You won't regret it.

The libertes have become my universal glasses since getting a set of 4 last year, and I picked up some 1855 this to try them. Hard to imagine anything better at these prices and Chris 100% stands behind his products.

Do you have max dimensions for what can fit in the Voyage? Just wondering if other glassware (say a Zalto Burg) fits since it is slightly wider than the Cru and 1855...

Love love love these stems. I don't need more but I keep buying. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ And Chris has been nothing but awesome from the beginning, so thank you Chris. What I'm excited for is to compare and contrast the weight of these new stems from the ones I've bought over a year ago. I've read on the other thread about the subtle weight differences (slight heavier) from the most recent production. So I'm excited to test drive myself. Btw, I love the weightlessness of the early models and I'm sure I'll love the newer production models as well.

Any thoughts on the Elemental champagne glasses vs. champagne using the Cru (or other of the Viegneron series)?

I used the Liberté for about a week and went to pick up one of the Riedel Oregon Pinot Noir glasses, it felt like I was grabbing a tree trunk...

I love these glasses.

Barry
Cru for red burgundy and lighter wines, like Nebbiolo.

There is much debate, even internally, as to what the Cru can be used for without apparently violating some of the rules in the wine world.

I'm from a "drink from what you want to drink from" camp. I can tell you we have white burgundy winemakers who find the Cru to deliver a 'flabby' experience (and that extends to the Zalto Burgundy), and they prefer the Liberté and, if lightly oaked, or none (Chablis), they shift to the Mineralité.

But, let's be 100% candid. A 2017 Chablis may sing in a glass on release, but shift in 3 years, and again in 10. How you decanted it plays here too...is your first glass from the bottle and your last glass 4 hours later from the decanter....?

Punt my man. No one is throwing you in jail for enjoying your wine the way you want. I'm here to help you with great glasses, better service, and to make your wine drinking with friends and family more enjoyable because the glass does matter. There just isn't a cast in stone answer here - and if anyone says there is, they are full of shit.

:)

For what it's worth, I really like the champagne glasses, particularly at their price point. They probably aren't quite as thin/light, but they also feel durable, so a nice compromise.

    Just grabbed a pair of Cru and 1855s to match my Liberte set. Early verdict on the Liberte after two uses for Champagne are highly favorable. I'll use them for pinot noir, syrah, cabernet, and well you get the point until I get the new sets.

    What are peoples’ experiences with the water/tasting glass? I bought the Cru last year and love them. Now I’m thinking about a travel/local tasting dinner glass. These look portable, less fragile but still good quality. I’m a bit concerned about knocking them over though. Is the base large enough to make them stable? Thanks for any thoughts from folks who have used these.

    No need this is about all I needed to hear.

    How do you compare these to the Versatiles? I'm deciding between the two. How sturdy are the Versatiles compared to the Vigneron series glasses?
