The newest hot thing in wine accessories is also one of the oldest. Stemless wine glasses, or wine tumblers as they are sometimes called, have been around for a long time in Italy and have only recently rocketed back into fashion. You may want to have the trendiest wine accessories but surely you are wondering, are they worth it? Surely they are not that different from normal wine glasses, after all they are the same except with a flat bottom, right? Wrong, they are trendy and durable eye catchers.
Stemless wine glasses are a wonderfully simple looking alternative to traditional crystal. But they are not the same as normal tumblers, like the ones used for liqueurs, because like normal stemmed wine glasses the stemless versions are made of crystal, not glass, to better agitate the wine and entice out the aromas in it. Every good wine enthusiast knows that swirling the wine around to draw out the deeper aromas is part of the whole experience.
Another great thing about these chic versions of your boring old stemware is they are much less liable to break. Thanks to how much lower they sit than normal glasses, they are not as likely to break if they tip over because the fall is shorter. Not to mention you do not have to worry about breaking the stem, because they do not have one. Also they fit nicely in a normal cabinet, unlike normal stemmed glasses.
Plus on a whole these lovely tumblers are beautiful change from the norm. They can be played up like it is the hottest new thing and should be in only the most exclusive bars. Or you can play them down, like you just happen to have the same glasses as an old restaurant in Italy. They are indeed worth the money spent.
