Broke Another One — Wine Glasses

Ah the wine glass…or as I refer to it — Big Karl (thank you Cougartown). Boy oh boy does that particular glassware get a workout around this house. But with heavy usage comes breakage. Sometimes they bite the dust in the dishwasher. Sometimes The Boy a guest has butterfingers. Even this girl has broken her fair share of wine glasses.

After last year’s New Year’s Eve party, we were down to only a couple that survived, so we invested in two Riedel sets from Target. Nothing super fancy or flashy, but they had thinner glass felt good in my hand. As a plus, they all matched.

Although I should be cognizant, I don’t get too hung up on white wine glass versus red wine glass. My $10 bottle of Prairie Fumé tastes the same to me from either vessel. I base my glass of choice on how much wine can fit into said vessel — so please no judging if you see white wine in my red wine glass. Sommelier I am not.

Since January 1, I’m somehow down to 3 mismatched wine glasses *palm to forehead*. Therefore it’s time to round up a bunch that I think look pretty, and I’m asking for your recommendations. Sound like fun?  Let’s get started, shall we?

Anyone out there have the stemless wine glasses? I’m curious what you think. They’re pretty but are they functional? And by functional I mean, will they make my white wine warm because I’m holding it? Yes, the problem could easily be solved by drinking faster…however the morning after may be a bit rough.

So what do you think? Do any stand out to you? To be perfectly honest, when I looked at all these wine glasses individually, I was like ummm, I can’t tell the difference. But looking at them here, I’m drawn to one in particular. Would you believe it’s my original Riedel Target special glass? I guess sometimes you just have to go through the process to see you might want to stick with what you got, huh? Which one is your favorite?

    Just catching up on my blogs, and wanted to comment that I love my stemless glasses. Mostly because they fit in my dishwasher, unlike the stemmed ones! They were the first new thing I ended up buying when I moved into my house with dishwasher, from an apartment without. Mostly I keep my glass of wine on a surface between drinks rather than holding it, so it’s not getting warm.
