Drink Wine Safely with Govino Stemless Wine Glasses

Drinking wine, beer, and cocktails while traveling often results in using glasses you ordinarily wouldn’t at home. Whether you swig out of the bottle on the trail, out of a red plastic cup at the campsite, or out of a can in the parking lot—presentation takes a few steps backwards when you don’t want to worry about packing or breaking a glass.


But when you can bring along a shatterproof, reusable “glass,” why not do it? Govino stemless wine glasses are made of Tritan from Eastman, a flexible, shatterproof, highly durable, BPA/BPS-free polymer. They look a lot like stemless wine glasses made of glass, but they’re much easier to pack and use without breaking.


The thumb notch in each glass helps you to hold the glass securely, and the polished lip is much nicer than sipping over plastic glass seams. While they don’t stack as compactly as plastic cups, they’re worth bringing along on your adventures when you have room to pack them, and you can reuse them frequently as your wine glass on any trip.


These stemless wine glasses are ideal to use in your backyard or around the pool, as well as on the road—whether on a road trip or camping adventure. When it comes to cleaning them, remove lip gloss, lipstick, and sunscreen first with a soft, non-abrasive sponge. Put them in the top rack of the dishwasher (or hand wash them), and instead of subjecting them to the extended heated drying cycle, pull them out and buff dry with a lint-free cloth or paper towel.


I tested the “Best Govino Ever” red wine glasses (2-pack for $12.95, 4-pack for $24.95), but there are also white wine, beer, rocks, and highball glasses available on the Govino site.
