Old: Stemless wine glasses
New: Hip Wine Glasses, Crate and Barrel, $6.95Amanda Johnson, Digital Content Strategy Manager
I have a thing against stemless wine glasses—there’s something about the way the heat from your hand changes your drink’s temperature that just really rubs me the wrong way. For reasons unbeknownst to me, I’ve accumulated many of these sets over the years, which are great for party guests but not so great when drinking alone on my couch.
Luckily (unfortunately?), too many shattered, mismatched glasses call for an upgrade. I’m now looking forward to drinking from a glass that keeps my drink the ideal temperature—whether I choose red or white
—like these wine glasses from Crate and Barrel. With a name like that, they must be cool.
