I prefer starting out with glass...but after the first couple of glasses I don't care if it's in a styrofoam cup...what the heck, just turn up the bottle!!!

True enophiles prefer crystal. There's nothing quite like the fine edge of a crystal vessel as a delivery medium for fine wine or cognac. I prefer the later. All that said we've got plastic for travel, crystal for home.

Works really well!

Just want to jump in and say that I believe that Target still has these. See quote below:

Organizing the kitchen
I bought these for everyday in our house and for each of our kids' households. They feel sturdy in the hand yet satisfy that "wine in real glass" requirement. VERY economical. Packed as 2air said in their cardboard/dividers box, they also serve well on the road with your AS. Cheers ~G

We used to use wine glasses which cost more than the wine! We love great wine and good wine and were snobs at first thinking glass was the only way to drink fine wines. We now have really cheap plastic and some really wonderful acrylic ones. To be honest the wine still tastes great and I don't worry about breakage or leaving one behind.

I guess we are in the snob catergorie. Belong to a wine tasting group, have different Reidel glasses for various types of wine as do all of our serious wine friends, have 500 botttles in the cellars, very particular about what food to prepare for the wine I want to have and viceversa. But it is about pleasure. This things bring me joy and are not work or trouble or negative in anyway. It's an art form this eating and drink thing we do. Many of the great pleasures in life develope with experience or at least appreciation increases with age. For us wine and food are a sample of what earth and the gods are up to in a particular place during a particular season. Wine crafted by men is far less interesting, lacks mystery and character.
We travel with glasses according to the wine and occasion. We have some tough over sized Rioja style glasses for most on the road use. Buy them by the dozen for entertaining larger groups at home.
As always a wine is seldom experienced in isolation. The company and circumstance contributes to the pleasure. We prefer more primitive style wines for rally events, campfire and all that to consider. A fine Burgundy in a fine glass would be neglected by the senses competing with a circle of friends around a roaring fire. Nevertheless, we are wine snobs and thankful to be so.

You aren't suppose to fill them up to the top.

Stemmed wine glasses for us. One thing I really miss after moving to Florida. Ohio Wines.

Personally, I prefer glass/crystal for fine wine, it's part of the enjoyment. However, while travel in style, I found that this new unbreakable, scratch-resistance polycarbonate drinking vessels work well for me. Especially, these margarita glasses, which you can get them on sale on Williams-Sonoma.com.
Williams-Sonoma | Catalog
They also carry wine glasses and other vessels.

But I do agree, after a glass or two, it really doesn't matter what you are drinking out of....

I really wouldn't know. I would think glass would be preferred so as to not dissolve the vessel.
