Let’s face it, glassware is an often overlooked aspect of stocking the kitchen and the dining areas of the home. In fact, many people simply take a quick trip to Wal-mart, Target, or some other discount retail chain, and pick out the cheapest glasses they can find. Why settle for cheap, when you can spend a little more money to ensure that the pieces you choose for the home are also good quality, that will last awhile?
Once you’ve settled on a budget, and then made some initial purchases, then it’ll be time to move on to more specialized glassware pieces for the house or apartment. It will be assumed that you’ve gotten the basics out of the way, like water glasses and the likes. Pint glasses work well for this application, because they can also be used for so many other beverages; i.e. juice, iced tea, milk, etc. The list goes on, but one beverage you won’t find on that list is wine.
Wine glasses are good to have around the home, for a few good reasons:
- If you ever have any guests over to the home, you will undoubtedly want to offer them something to drink of an alcoholic nature. This isn’t always true, I know. Many people just don’t drink alcohol, so why would they have booze in the house? For the rest of us, wine glasses just make sense.
- They can also be used for many different alcoholic beverages. If you want to have a mimosa for Sunday brunch, use a wine glass. If you enjoy a bloody Mary every now and again, and don’t feel like using a pint glass, then opt for a wine glass. Champagne also goes well in wine glasses, saving you from having to buy other specialty glasses for festive times of the year, like New Year’s for instance.
- Having specialized glassware just sends the right message to other members of the family, as well as any guests you may have in your home from time to time. You may want to even consider going with high-end glassware for this purpose, like Waterford crystal wine glasses for example.
