Gloria Ferrer Winery Signature Sparkling Wine Flute Designed by Gloria Ferrer
Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards Co-Founder Gloria Ferrer has created a signature, collectible sparkling wine glass called Gloria’s Flute now available for purchase at the winery or online at gloriaferrer.com.
Gloria’s Flute is a blend of antique and modern. It offers a long, delicate flute neck with a luxuriant hand-feel and lavish bubble delivery, and a wider coupe-inspired-bowl to enhance the aromatics of the wine. Each glass retails for $40.
Gloria Ferrer’s love affair with collectible stemware began on Venice’s Piazza San Marco in 1956. She had just embarked upon a new life in the wine industry and her uncle, with remarkable prescience, suggested she begin a glass collection. Inspired to act, her father rose from the table and returned later with an exquisite red Murano crystal glass with a gold dauphine in the stem.
Her lifelong treasure hunt brought her to antique showrooms and dusty curio shops all over the world, rummaging through countless odds and ends to find forgotten jewels. Her collection now numbers more than 2000 pieces, and is believed to be the largest private collection in the world. Over 100 pieces in her collection, including her very favorite sparkling wine glass, are on display at the winery in Sonoma for public viewing.
