Class in a Cup
When it comes to big parties or picnics, winos have had two options: elegance at the risk of shattering your fine crystal, or practicality in the form of ugly plastic cups. We’re tickled rosé to report there’s a third.
The Govino wineglass looks like stemless crystal, but is pharmaceutical-grade plastic that’s unbreakable, reusable and, after a few uses, recyclable. Originally developed for trade wine tastings, there’s even a small thumb indentation to better your grip after a few.
So whether or not we stay classy after one too many, the cup has us covered.
