Having met my friend Guilherme Corrêa, a Brazilian sommelier, here in Porto at the Essência do Vinho, he mentioned these glasses as being utterly remarkable and above any other he has tried. Coming from someone who literally has a stemware collection and has won an award for greatest sommelier in South America, I was impressed, yet I couldn’t find anything on the forum about these. Any thoughts?
Haven’t tried these stems yet. It’s a relatively new brand, though it seems to be gaining tracking in Europe, particularly in France. Jane Anson did a feature on them last year: https://www.decanter.com/wine-news/opinion/news-blogs-anson/sydonios-wine-glass-bordeaux-431917/
Interesting, they appear to have no presence in N.A., but at least one place in Portugal has them, Tomás,
That was surprising to me. I think it’s mostly due to their focus in EU, but then they also seem to have distribution in parts of Asia and Latin America. Maybe it’s just a tougher market with players like Zalto and Grassl dominating the lion’s share of the high end stem market?
I’m curious to try these, but at this point I have no more space for more stems
Good to see the round bowl making a comeback.
Jo from Amovino has them in Portugal, as well as Grassl. I really like Sydonios, in particular the Empreinte for champagne. Though I heard from people who use them more often than me, that they tend to break a lot more than Zalto, Gabriel glass or Grassl.
