The true joy of a completely handcrafted stem isn’t in the way it affects the wine, but in the way it affects you. Some things need to be held to be appreciated and just picking up the Gold Edition glass tells you everything you need to know about its craftsmanship; lighter than air, delicate yet durable, precisely balanced, and gossamer thin.

A Note from Jonah

"The Gabriel-Glas Gold Edition stem is a truly stunning example of an all but extinct craft. Hand-blown and handcrafted wine glasses like the Gold Edition carry with them a little bit of the craftsmen themselves. It’s a gift of sorts that tells us about the people that made it more than it does about material, technique, and approach."

Stunning Lead-Free Crystal

Made from carefully sourced, low-iron sand that is blended with a proprietary mix of metals and purifiers that add clarity and brilliance while also strengthening the material.

Designed to Decant

The broader diameter at the base of the bowl and the gentle conical shape is purposefully designed to open the wine’s aromas and drive the bouquet.

Hand-Blown and Handcrafted

It takes two artisans, working in tandem, about 15 minutes to make each glass. In this ancient manner, the craftsmen can communicate with each other and stretch the limits of the material to a point that seems impossible resulting in a gossamer thin glass, razor-sharp rim, and lighter-than-air weight.

Dishwasher Safe

EU tested for guaranteed brilliance and clarity after 1,000 washing cycles.

Hand-Blown & Exquisite to Behold

“We have some amazing glassware and ceramics here that all the guests talk about, I really think the Gold Edition is the only glass in the world that fits with the rest of our collection.”

Hand-blown & Handcrafted

It takes two artisans, working in tandem, to make each Gold Edition stem. The iconic Gabriel-Glas silhouette—that slightly conical, gently curved bowl—is blown through a water-soaked, wooden mold, the stem is then pulled and formed while the other craftsman adds more crystal to form and flatten the footplate.

Gossamer Thin

It takes a human touch to stretch reinforced crystal to the absolute limits of the material itself. During the process of blowing the glass and pulling the stem each craftsman is feeling the resistance of the material, applying heat as needed, and using all their senses–sound included–to find the balance between the crystal’s strength and grace.
