Product Description

Product Description

Hand-blown crystal wine glasses with exclusive advantages that other wine glasses can't match. Glasses are blown in Turkey of lead-free Crystalline quartz. Etched with the Rabbit symbol of quality assurance, the Glass is colorless with exceptional clarity and brightness. ¿A tasting lip on every glass...This graceful outward curve to the rim of the glass is functional.It enhances the appreciation of wine and champagne by directing it to the front palate. Super-size red wine glasses (33 and 34 oz.)¿This is the extravagant size favored by wine connoisseurs, because their high surface evaporation rate fully releases a red wine's bouquet.Bowls of Bordeaux and Burgundy glasses are shaped to emphasize the merits of those wines.

Medium- to full-bodied red wines need a wide surface area to fully release their bouquet, hence this monumental wine-specific glass from Metrokane. Ideally designed for Bordeaux, Cabernet, and Merlot, the 33-ounce glass provides the appropriate bowl girth and curvature that wine connoisseurs expect. Furthermore, the flared tasting lip directs the wine to the front palate, enhancing the total sensory experience. The set consists of 4 glasses.

Metrokane, maker of the renowned Rabbit corkscrew, etches the base of each glass with a tiny Rabbit icon as a symbol of quality. Hand-blown of remarkably clear lead-free crystal, the glasses are dishwasher-safe, yet the stunning size, 10-3/4 by 4 inches, may preclude them from fitting in most dishwashers. Metrokane also produces crystal specifically designed for medium- to full-bodied reds, sparkling wines, and dry white wines. --Ann Bieri

After my wife broke ANOTHER Reidel burgundy glass, I ordered these.
R. Miller
Metrokane glasses are well worth the money if you're looking for large bowls and an oversized big glass for your good juice.

I emailed the buyer to let them know of the mix up and never heard back.

We bought some white wine glasses a while back and the Metrokane Rabbits were truly beautiful. We use them 10:1 over our Reidels. After my wife broke ANOTHER Reidel burgundy glass, I ordered these. They are HUUUUGE. I'm very serious when I say that an entire bottle of wine would easily fit into one of these glasses (with room to spare!) There is nothing attractive about THESE monsters and storage is a big issue (literally.) They would make a fine fish bowl!

I own Reidel Sommelier glasses, Reidel Vinum glasses, and Reidel Extreme glasses. I put these Rabbit glasses into the same category as the Vinums from Reidel; they are great everyday glasses for people like me who tend to drink fairly good wines and tend to drink fairly hefty-sized portions.

These glasses are certainly not in the same category as Reidel Sommeliers, but then again they cost about 1/4 as much.

Verified Purchase
These glasses are huge. I bought these as a side gift for my wife a couple christmases ago. I thought when I was shopping "these are red wine glasses, what else do I need to know?" I guess I should have been more careful about reading the product details because these things are like novelty oversize wine glasses. No kidding, they are ridiculously big. My wife returned them. I thought I would be safe because metrokane is the company that makes those really cool wine corkscrews. I don't know who uses these kinds of glasses or what they use them for, but they weren't any good for us. I guess they would be good if you were like 13 or 14 feet tall and had humungous hands. Other than the size, the quality seemed good. I guess I can't fault metrokane, but I can't help but thinking there should have been something in the description to warn me that these glasses would be bigger than my head.

I saw an ad for Rabbit comparing it to Reidel. It is no Reidel.

Heavier than I expected, and larger than I expected.

While other reviewers complained and did not like the size of these wine glasses, I think this product is well worth the money. The size of these glasses is very large, but that is the point. Large glasses are perfect for special wines so you can smell the wine and let it breathe in a large bowl. These glasses are approximately the same size as their reidel equivalent, and I'm very happy with the quality and shine of the crystal for half the price of reidel's. Thus, I don't mind if these break, but the crystal seems to be strong and the manufacturer advertises that these glasses can be put in the dishwashing machine although I tend to rinse with hot water only. Metrokane glasses are well worth the money if you're looking for large bowls and an oversized big glass for your good juice.
