friends and family wherever we go. But we always face the dilemma of either serving a fine bottle in cheap plastic cups or sacrificing Waterford glasses for the greater good.
Govino glasses are a perfect solution to our entertaining needs. We tried them out this weekend after reading about them in a wine magazine. At only $2.99 each (or a 4-pack at $11.95), they are an inexpensive way to showcase our favourite wines without worrying about broken glass.
The glasses feature a dent on the side for your thumb so you can easily carry them. They are also lightweight, yet durable.
Originally designed for wine professionals, these glasses are made of a special plastic that acts like crystal...that is, you can properly see your wine's colour and smell its bouquet. We loved its design as it was perfect for swirling, sniffing, and most importantly, drinking wine.
And the glasses are shatterproof too (as seen by how bendy the glass is in the photo above). One of the guests even dropped the glass, only to have it bounce back in his hand.
These beautiful glasses are reusable (they should be hand-washed) and recyclable.
