The Wine Un-Goblet

Ideal for the wine novice and the ardent apprentice alike, the modern stemless wine glass puts the Pinot right in the palm of your hand. And, conveniently, it fits in your dishwasher, so you can say goodbye to hand-washing. The newest revolution in glassware is casual yet sophisticated. Styles range from no-frills glass tumblers to hand-blown Austrian crystal in shapes designed to enhance specific types of wine. Are you ready to nix the stem? Here are some considerations to help you decide:

The Pros of Going Stemless:

  • Dishwasher safe for easy cleaning
  • Easier to store than wine glasses with stems
  • Suitable for other beverages such as iced tea, sparkling water or cocktails
  • Hip, fun look
  • Unpretentious

The Cons of Going Stemless:

  • Less elegant appearance
  • Cannot always get the properly shaped glass with every stemless brand, so miss some of the flavor and aroma nuances
  • No stem means handling the bowl and heating the wine with your hands
  • Larger bowls for reds are awkward for smaller hands to hold
  • Swirling the wine is more of a challenge without a stem
