The Gabriel Glas Story -
Gabriel Glas is an Austrian company started by the Swiss-German wine critic René Gabriel who, while writing the comprehensive German-language wine book "Weinbibel" became fixated on the idea of finding one glass that would successfully present every style of wine. Finding that no such glass existed, he set about creating one, and the Gabriel Glas Company was born.
While the company started with this singular desire to create just one ideal glass for all types of wine, it has diversified to offer a broad array of crystalware. Throughout the design process each piece is given the same attention to detail as the glass that started it all, as is readily apparent from the appearance of each but becomes overwhelmingly obvious as soon as you use them. Elegant as they are functional, these are masterpieces of combining form and function.
