What is the difference between these glasses and the non-value set Reidel Sommeliers Bordeaux glasses?
G M on Sep 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These glasses are lighter and not as sturdy as the real Sommelier glass. The stems are thinner, as is the base and the connection of the stem to the bowl and stem to the base is thinner. The glass itself is much lighter than the regular Sommelier which causes a problem with the weight of the wine in the glass. These value set glasses are considerably more fragile due to the light weight. I have already had one break during hand dishwashing. Simply put, these are a "cheap" version of the real Sommelier. Am surprised Reidel would make them.
is the price of $115 per glass in a set of two glasses or is the total price for a set of two glasses $115?

BEST ANSWER: Hi the price shown online is for a set of 2 glasses.

Value set not the same as the individual glasses
The old saying....if the deal looks too good to be true.... While the glasses are the same shape and quality crystal, the thickness is half what it is with the individually sold glasses. Affraid to wash them for fear of snapping the stems in half. Nice try but you should mention the differences.

cheap knock off
Don't buy these if you look for good glasses

These have the same form as the 'real' sommeliers. but they are MUCH lighter, more fragile. You don't feel you have a luxurious item in your hand.

I made the mistake of ordering a bunch of them, using them once for a party, and thought they felt weird. Then compared them to the other glasses I had, and quickly noticed the difference.

HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT

These glasses are beautiful and functional, but they do feel fragile in a way that my other glasses don't. Whether they are worth the price, I don't know. But at 2 for 1, the price proposition is better, and they are easily the best glass I've used

Decadent...
There is no better stemware on the marketplace when you're tasting high-end Bordeaux blends, Cabernet or Shiraz. In term of the experience, these stems are an amplifier. A great gift for somebody who enjoys the finer things in life.

Not only for Sommeliers
These are very fine wine glasses that I would recommend to the serious wine drinkers. The wine opens up beautifully in the glass and it was a pleasure to drink from. Do not hesitate to obtain them.

Fine glasses, but be careful when you wash. Must be hand washed with gentle hands.
Love these glasses when I drink special bottles of Bordeaux, which is often.

The size and delicacy of the glass enhances the pleasure of drinking in many ways

Not the same as the regular Sommelier glasses
While there is nothing "wrong" with these glasses, they are very thin and delicate. We have the "normal" sommelier Bordeaux Grand Cru and broke one. I ordered this so that we would have a spare. Not thrilled. Every time I wash them I am afraid they will break. They just are not the same. I should have spent the same amount of money and gotten one that wasn't a "value set."
