We visited Glaser a couple of weekends ago and the experience was dull and bland to say the least. The woman working the tasting room was friendly enough, but she offered no information about the wines she was pouring and couldn't even be bothered to be helpful enough to explain their tasting fees. The wine list on the counter claimed that tasting was $5 and then it described each of their wines. There was no explanation as to how many wines you could taste for that $5. Being an experienced wine taster who has visited many wineries (and having a significant other in the industry) I know it is not uncommon for a tasting room to let you try their entire list. Yet when I inquired about this, I was only laughed at by the tasting room employee, the owner, and the group of other tasters. "No, no" they said. "You get 3 or 4 tastes". Apparently they thought it was hilarious that I would think I could try more than that. Let me add that before I inquired about how many tastes I would get, the woman behind the counter just started pushing whatever wines she wanted on us, not even asking what we would like to try. Then she would stand there and stare at us as we tried the wine, without saying a word. Just a weird grin on her face. Uncomfortable. After my first taste of white and her eagerness to pour me another taste of white, I decided to pipe up and make sure I would get to taste some reds. Poor customer service if you ask me. If I would have known I only get 3-4 tastes, I would have passed on her first offer. Also, is it 3 or 4? Make up your mind. Or does it just depend on your opinion of each taster? Maybe they should put that on their tasting list to avoid confusion and wasted tastes on wines you would rather not try, being that your choices are so limited. All in all, the tastes were VERY small and the wine was only so-so. For $5, we probably got less than half a glass of wine total. The only thing that saved the day was the taste of Limoncello that we got. Needless to say, we didn't buy any wine and will NEVER be back. I wouldn't recommend this tasting room to anyone. Disappointing.
