A stemless wine glass is the younger sibling to the traditional stemmed wine glass. They never argue but sommeliers and wine merchants will often be heard arguing over the two glass variants.

Stemless wine glasses are modern and stylish, offering a new and innovative way to serve wine and a variety of other drinks including fruit juices, soft drinks, water and cocktails. They are perfect for any bar, pub or restaurant as well as in the home, for both formal entertaining occasions and informal meals. We have seen and recorded a growing interest and demand for these glasses over the past few years and expect this to continue to rise in 2013.

After extensive research of the latest stemless wine glasses we have finally found and whittled down our favourite five. It was a challenging task which did involve a few wine tasting experiments but someone had to do it!

What do you think?

We absolutely love these five stemless wine glass designs and although they may be in rivalry with traditional stemmed glassware, we feel they are a welcome addition to the glass industry. They offer an alternative to your traditional table setting or to the ‘usual glassware’ served at a drinks bar or restaurant. Will you be trying stemless wine glasses in 2013? Or perhaps buying a set for a wedding present for that special couple?
