The Joy of a Stemless Wineglass

Drinking wine just got a lot sexier…

A few weeks ago, I received a stemless wineglass as a birthday gift. What a phenomenon I thought, it’s so practical! Who needs stems on wine glasses anyway? I want to enjoy my vino without the high maintenance of holding a stem because it’s less effort.

Drinking wine should feel relaxing, soothing & be low maintenance. I always envy whiskey or gin drinkers because they look more relaxed holding their tumblers. They’ve got sophistication down to a tee!

The ‘Jane Bond’ Drink

So what is the purpose of stemless wine glasses you ask? Well it certainly does make drinking vino look a LOT sexier. I’m no martini drinker but when I’m holding my stemless wineglass, I feel ballsy & injected with an extra boost of confidence. My alter ego is Bond…Jane Bond. Next time I’m sitting alone at a swanky bar, I’ll raise my glass & wink at the handsome guy next to me. You never know what might happen!

Stemless wineglasses have created quite a buzz since their arrival on the market a few years ago. They’re perfect if you are using it for more than just wine & can be doubled as an indoor/outdoor glass as well. Also ideal if you drink non-alcoholic drinks like juice, virgin cocktails or soda.

Shape is Everything

What if you want to keep that white wine cold you ask? Like most things, it comes down to a matter of preference. Obviously stemless glasses work better if you’re a red wine drinker. The shape of the glass actually helps the flavors & aromas of the wine to develop better. However, if you like to enjoy your white wine cold, you’re better off sticking to traditional stem glasses.

Chill Out

As I write this, I’m enjoying copious amounts of Californian rosé wine from my multi-use, stemless wineglass. What better way to express clarity, right?! The temperature has stayed nicely chilled, so no complaints there.

Bringing Sexy Back

Drinking wine (or indeed any beverage) has just got a lot sexier. It won’t be long now until all the wine connoisseurs will be throwing out their boring, high-maintenance, dishwasher unfriendly stemmed glasses!

Raise your tumbler glass with me & shout at the top of your voice: “Sip, sip hooray to the stemless wineglass!”

It’s the way of the wino’s future!
