August 27, 2007

We saw an ad in yesterday's newspaper for 'wine tumblers'. I wasn't familiar with them, but I liked the idea. Wine glasses with a stem always felt too... er... well... too ... I don't know... I'm just too clumsy to be comfortable with glass on a stick.
We went to 'World Market' and found that there are tumblers for red wine and different tumblers for white wine. Okay, I can go for that.

The price was right, so we bought a set for red wine and a set for white wine.

When we got home I looked up 'Stemless Wine Glasses' on Google. I found out that some people think they need a different type tumbler for the various variety of grape.

Come on! I think that is carrying it a little too far.

Very cool. So, what am I supposed to drink a Riesling from?

Those folks that need a different type of glass for each type of grape must have way too much money on their hands. I'm taking donations! LOL!

That is very Rome and Provence!

Drinks at your place tonight!~
Stems just get in the way of the surface you are placing them on I've found.

A lemonade glass should be big enough, don't you think.
Robin Reid27-Aug-2007 21:29
I'll drink to that!

Doesn't that make you drink it... faster??

i thought the whole point to the stem was to keep the warmth of your hand away from the globe so that wine temp was not influenced . . .not that I care if wine is warmed by my hands cuz I'll drink it either way =)))
funny . . . from the thumb, I thought you had submerged your wine glass thru a hole in a table or box =P
