... [The glass stopper] won't be appearing on cheap wines because it is significantly more expensive than corks or Stelven enclosures, but visually it is well worth the price. The wine? It's wonderful. Softer and with more fruit and body than the Saloman Grüner that sells so well, it is clean, very well balanced, and just a beautiful white wine.

Do the glass stoppers fit well enough that I can lay an opened and reclosed Riesling bottle down in my fridge without fear of spillage?

What I was telling is the fact that I had opened and re-sealed glas stoppered bottles on their side in the fridge without leakage problem.
Ototh, the glass stoppers are not precision ground but there is a gasket made from PVDC (the same material that the sealiong foil in screwcaps are made of); the stopper "snaps" into the bottle. If you look at http://www.vino-lok.de there are pics (you can enlarge).
