wine glasses

I would prefer to drink fine vintage reds ( Californian ) from a very thin and light hand-blown " globe". Needless to say we enjoy vintage wines only on special occassions.
Usually when traveling in our A.S., we drink our van-ordinair from Plastic tulips. Light weight, less fragile, and we can carry more of them with which to accommodate our more rustic camp ground acquaintancess.
I might add however, that we do, it seems, find more "special" occasions when wandering in the Stream. It is a sort of serindipodis mode of travel.
I like my Bud Light right from the bottle, but usualy camoflage it in a opaque plastic cup when on a campsite just to placate the r & rs.
Please be assured, if you come across me on a campsite and would like to offer me a drink, of whatever, a paper cup will work just fine for me.
Dennis

Poorly designed poll

I strongly prefer glass and certainly use glass at home, but we use Lexan in the Airstream. I suspect that I'm far from alone in that.

We buy our wine in a box and in that box is a plastic bag with a little plastic nipple thingy to spit out the wine into our wine glasses.

You should make another rack to hold the box nipple thingy at face height. Then you wouldn't need the glass...you would just walk up to it and pour into mouth. It saves space because it puts the box up and out of the way and you don't need to store glasses. Wow!

I seldom bother with bag in a box wine...I was taught by wine snobs that once you open the bottle you should finish it off and those boxes are just a bit much for one sitting BTW I do sniff the screw off tops prior to consuming

Along these same lines, the proper way to hold the bottle is,---in the middle so the bottle doesn't slip out of the bag!

Smile Maybe there should be a third option

Not to be contrary, but I kinda got to thinking after reading certain posts where folks like a larger distance between the opening of the wine container and their mouths than conventional stuff that maybe wine skins might be in order? Sure would make it easier on the person who cleans their trailer floors/countertops... Might be easier to market than a wine rack...

Steph, great idea! ... unbreakable, wearable wine glasses, or maybe I can just hang them from the ceiling from hooks.

What a bunch of winers--I like this club! Tumblers for wine at home and in the AS. Beer from its original glass packaging. Utilitarian vessels these tumblers are and when travelling in a Bambi multi-functioning accoutraments are essential. When a tumbler of wine gets dropped and breaks around the campfire it is not for the tumbler that I greive. It is the very thought of making my way back into the nearest small town and searching for a respectable Bordeaux should my consumption estimates for the trip be shy.

A grief we've communally shared here--one time or another.

Ah, Georgia, but if one always contemplates the necessity for having quality wines nearby, one should contemplate vacationing in the many and varied climes offered by Napa, Sonoma, and Lake Counties in CA. One is never but an hour away from some of the finest wineries in the world!

Corks? I don't believe I've ever seen one. The finest wines my budget allows always have a convenient screw cap...

I would always use glass, but will resort to plastic in desperate times. Than again in other desperate times a paper cup will do or any metal container, even cast iron or of course, directly from the container it comes in. Drinking wine through a straw is a little on the tacky side, but whatever conveyance it takes it must be done.

I kind of thought a good compromise would be stainless steel. Here is one set I found.
