The Best Stemless Wine Glasses for Your Home

Slate

Stemless wine glasses can be divisive: "I think elitists still believe it is somewhat gauche to carry stemless glasses versus'proper' wine glasses in a restaurant," says Zach Jones, wine director at Chicago restaurant Pacific Standard Time. "That's kind of a silly way to think, but it is true that, at least in a restaurant, stemmed wine glasses are easier to store and transport because they can be hung upside down." But then, the opposite is true for klutzy people at home with small kitchens: "When shelf space is limited, they're a real lifesaver, without having to deal with giant racks or having to make space for tall glassware," says Roman Tartakovsky, beverage manager at Hudson's in New York. Plus, as many experts pointed out: a stemless wine glass works equally well for Aperol spritzs, Sangria, a nightcap of something brown, or even just water. So as a way to praise the stemless wine glass, here are over a dozen wine experts, restaurant owners, beverage directors, and frequent party hosts who've chosen their favorites.

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

Whenever my whole family gets together, chaos ensues: Food gets devoured, the children fight, and glasses inevitably shatter. While there are no quick fixes to getting children to behave or teaching Cousin Eddie that "all you can eat" doesn't mean you can eat it all, there are plenty of glassware choices that can withstand even the rowdiest of parties.
