Jancis Robinson to launch wine glass ‘in response to an everyday frustration’

Key features of the 1 Collection according to the manufacturers

Finest crystal – The glasses are very light, and the rim has been made particularly fine to minimise the amount of glass that comes between the wine and the palate.

Mouth-blown – Each piece in the collection is made in Europe “by some of the most skilled glass blowers in the world”.

Lead-free – The lead-free glass used to create the collection ensures that each piece is light, ultra-fine and durable against clouding.

Perfect pour – a 125ml pour comes to the widest point of the bowl, maximising the release of the wine’s aromas.

Dishwasher safe – The 1 Glass has been designed to fit any standard dishwasher and has a sturdy stem to minimise the likelihood of breakages.

    • Hello Partrick, there are places that are less expensive and sell quality products. At least my experience dealing with Ascot wholesale was good. I think you must give a visit at their online store.

    Well it was all going so well, after all that Reidel varietal grape wine glass twaddle, finally someone who agrees one glass can do everything.
    However, there is absolutely NO need for two different decanters. JR has certainly shot herself in the foot with these two. The bottle-shaped one
    will do both jobs perfectly. Perhaps there was not enough commercial clout with only one in this small range.

    A further comment on the thoroughly researched shape of the wine glass. I am sure something incredibly similar is already on sale in John Lewis I think.

      JL not so give, by a country mile. Think you’re going to struggle to do better at the price. Totally disagree that the tall decanter is equally suited to wines that want aeration, btw.

    • Completely agree with you. One simple but elegant decanter that is easy to wash. Having battled with my Riedel decanter every time – however beautiful it might be I hate using it, I am going in search. But it won’t be one of these…..

    Is it just me, or is this a blatant rip-off of ANDREA Robinson’s “ONE” glass line?

  7. Alistair says:

    I reckon the stems should be shorter – the glass shape looks great – can’t see the point in a long stem… particularly with the desire to go in a dishwasher!

    Gabriel Glas did something like this ages ago, and I’m sure there were other before that too.
    I’ve had a couple of Gabriel’s for a few years and use them for everything, including a few cocktails (Negronis and alike).

  10. Good for her! I like the designs a lot. I assume they would be more for home use though, I wouldn’t imagine they would be very durable within the hospitality trade. Or perhaps I am wrong. Might have to get some.
