To use or not to use?

These trendy drinking glasses definitely have their benefits and we are here to boast on their behalf. We offer a fantastic range of Stemless Wine Glasses because of these top reasons:

  • Stemless wine glasses are easy to store.
  • They are perfect for large gatherings or parties.
  • These glasses are extremely suitable for red wine and are also suitable for a wide range of other drinks including water, white wine and soft drinks.
  • They fit well into the dishwasher. (No more hand washing your glasses!)
  • They are (generally) more difficult to knock over [and break] than stemmed wine glasses (we don’t advise trying this one out, so we did it for you!)

Wineware Tip: If you are hosting a wine tasting evening crystal black stemless wine glasses completely conceal wine, so your guests will be unable to distinguish the contents making the evening even more exiting and challenging. Stemless wine tasting glasses offer a unique approach to wine tasting in comparison to the traditionally used, industry-standard ISO Type Wine Tasting Glass.
