Drinking wine from a tumbler has long been the standard for a casual evening out in Europe. Using a tumbler is easy and convenient due to it's size and ability to fit in the dishwasher. Drinking wine from a stem in Europe is typically reserved for special occasions and white-linen restaurants. The Bodum So Long line pairs the convenience of drinking from a tumbler with the benefits of a wine glass. You are still able to swirl the wine to release and enjoy the bouquet as well as control the flow of wine onto the palette while the glass fits easily into the dishwasher. Made of borosilicate, the glass will not cloud over years of dishwashing. Lightweight yet durable, the stemless glass feels nice in the hand.
Bid so long to wine glass stems that break-the latest trend embraces stemless tumblers. Not only do these red wine glasses from Bodum fit easily in the dishwasher, they feel alluring to cradle in the hand and swirl, releasing the bouquet of a heady red wine. Each of the two in this set holds a generous 17 ounces and is made of borosilicate glass, the impressively lightweight yet very durable glass from which laboratory equipment is made. Borosilicate glass is lead-free, heat-resistant, and scratch-resistant, and won't cloud even after years of dishwasher cleaning.
Measuring four by three inches, the red wine glasses complement a full line of So Long stemless, including glasses designed especially for champagne, beer, and white wine. A superb gift, So Long is sure to enlighten the traditional wine drinker and become an everyday favorite. However, if not satisfactory, the set may be returned for a full refund within 30 days of purchase. --Ann Bieri
