Stylish and Shatterproof Wine Glasses

Stylish and Shatterproof Wine Glasses

Avoid sacrificing good style at your next cocktail party with these shatter-resistant, reusable tumblers.

Have cocktail party coming up? Ditch the tacky plastic cups! Now there’s an elegant way to serve wine when expensive stemware is not an option: govino shatterproof wineglasses.

Shaped much like the Riedel O tumblers but at a fraction of the price (4 for $12.95), these reusable, recyclable glasses are made from a flexible polymer that reflects wine’s color and aromatics much like crystal. “We tested all kinds of polymers,” says Joseph Perrulli, who designed the award-winning glasses with Boyd Willat. “We looked at viscosity of the wine, how it rolls down the inner wall of the glass, the way the aromatics project, the color, everything.”

Since being introduced in 2008 as a sales tool for wine distributors and importers, govino has been a breakout hit in the wider wine world. It’s the glass of choice for Robert Mondavi’s national Discover Wine Tour. It was used at the 25th anniversary party of Napa hot spot Mustards Grill. “I loved seeing winemakers like Christian Moueix of Dominus and Pétrus holding it up to the sunlight,” Perrulli recalls. A Napa resident himself, he notes with satisfaction, “If you go to a party here, you’re either going to get great stemware or govino. There’s nothing else.”

Now a third wave of interest is building as govino hits the design and housewares market. After getting shelf-space at trendsetting shops like the MoMA and Cooper-Hewitt museum shops in New York and ZeroMinusPlus at Fred Segal in Los Angeles, it’s become the hot new gift item. Soon there will be champagne flutes, too. Launching March 15, they’ll arrive just in time to supply some casual elegance to those outdoor May weddings. (Photos courtesy of govino)


The Best Wine Glasses of 2021

A person’s collection of wine glasses says a lot about where they are in the journey of adulthood. Until recently, my wine glass collection didn’t exactly scream, "I’m a functioning grown-up with a savings account!" Apparently, a Mason jar is not the correct vessel from which to drink wine. Neither, I’ve been told, is a plastic pint container, emptied of potato salad, cleaned, and repurposed for Chablis or Chardonnay.

But in my tiny apartment kitchen, I don’t have the space to house a variety of wine glasses designated for red, white, and bubbly wine. Even if I did have room for a plethora of glasses, I'd still have neither the wine expertise nor the budget to justify them all.

With price, functionality, and appearance in mind, we set out to find an attractive all-purpose glass ideal for sipping red, white, and even sparkling wine. To identify a glass that delivered on taste and aroma, and didn’t compromise on aesthetics, I called in the help of two expert sommeliers. Along with some members of the Serious Eats team, they sipped and tested their way through 10 wine glasses.
