More sage advice to live by and this time by the Balrgn who knows how to spell! I am dispensing with all my jelly as we speak.

well the box wine really was fine and went undetected...

it was only when denellen offered up the GIANT wine bottle that we became obvious.

or it could have been throwing the cork at the park attendant...

so my plan is wine boxes with hawaiian punch lables overlaid.

or we could use the attached containers....

i've had wine and other distilled spirits from a camelbak and goat skin...

yum!

now back to the mad dog 20/20, t-bird, boones farm and rosie's revenge...

those are ALL best served from a brown paper bag...

Living out here where the foam meets the flakes in America's vinyard state, I would like to share our oenological preferences with y'all. We prefer to drink champaign out of glass- a glass slipper if one is available. To do otherwise would be real paign. Other than that, we just break off the bottle neck on the edge of the sink and let the wine "breath" until the shards settle, and then decant the blood of morpheus into whatever is at hand. As James Bond is rumored to have said this method may leave a person shaken, but not necessarily stirred. Hope this helps-bottoms up!

aluminum anyone?

We have a source for aluminum wine goblets and could make them available in the store in sets of 4 if enough interest. Similar in appearance to the stainless steel goblets but lighter in weight.
Pros and cons?
Silver or assorted festive colors?

I made reference to the GSI stainless steel goblets in posts 14 & 21 of this thread, with the best sourcing in another (post 31 here). I've seen them at both Campmor & REI. They've absorbed some significant bumps and drops in the last three years or so and have yet to show their first dent. They are quite thin, very light, and look as good now as when new. We travel with them among the dishtowels in case of road vibrations but have gotten careless with that and they still show no marred surface. Hard to beat.

Hi Bob. It was your posts on the stainless steel goblets which caused me to think of the aluminum goblets.
I am not a wine connoisseur but both aluminum and stainless steel drinking cups keep beverages cooler than plastic or glass and I would think that is an advantage over glass or plastic for those who enjoy sipping chilled wine, along with the advantages over glass of being lightweight and shatterproof.
We are in the process of adding some neat retro-50’s 16-ounce aluminum tumblers to our product line and it would not be much trouble to add some aluminum goblets if there is a market for them amongst Airstream owners. I'm not inferring that aluminum goblets would be superior to stainless steel, just advising that we could make them readily available, along with our other merchandise. Any input is appreciated. Here is a sneak preview of the tumblers (for other beverages). Cheers!

Roger
