Given some of the places I go, I have to vote plastic.

I hate the taste when in plastic...but I'm with Chris, sometimes you just have to go with plastic especially when you are running away from Campcollector's towering infernos.

Well... I prefer glass - but stemware is just too delicate. So.. it's plastic for me or even better a picardie glass (bistro style) tumbler - about 10 oz.

But heck - I'm not really picky - and the wine doesn't care whether it's in leaded glass or a lime green Kmart sippy cup....

My husband and I take wine in our trailer whereve we go (CA has a lot of choices!) and I've brought wine glasses w/us on our trips..but we keep breaking them!!..so it's glasses made out of heavy duty plastic that actually hold up..we bought these from a marine supply place..I'm not that much of a wine drinker, so it doesn't matter to me which I use..

We prefer glass, but it didn't take us long to realize these were more practical:

The stem unscrews and snaps inside the top.

Annie, I tried that, and now my wine tastes like old socks...Was I supposed to use new socks?

Gotta be glass...I have never seen plastic wine bottles before....Ohhh you mean if you aren't drinking it out of the bottle

We use both,but I prefer glass I just choose the heavier style of wine glass and have a padded case they can be stored in.

stainless steel

We found stainless steel champagne flutes for Sunday brunch and from Campmor some metal wine glasses. The only disadvantage to the champagne flutes is the metal conducts the cold and the champagne can warm quicker than usual--so smaller quantities or drink it faster!!

I am able to drink beer from a plastic cup and even down a shot of bourbon from the soft comfort of Styrofoam but when it comes to wine nothing but glass will do. Oh, and the same goes for coffee, only a glass mug can can impart the flavor.
Attached is a picture of the coffee mug and wine glass holder I built for Chummy. It holds four wine glasses and four coffee mugs, all in secure fashion so they will not break but in easy reach.

I used to use the coffee cups, carrying a minimum of dishes and no glasses whatsoever. But now we have some plastic wine glasses that are quite nice, especially after using cups. This was a posh nosh served by a friend when we two ladies went boondocking together. Since we were roughing it we skipped the glass.

Another vote for stainless steel...

We have the stainless wine and martini glasses. Tried drinking wine out of plastic, but couldn't do it. Plus, people always comment how cool these look with our Airstream!

We were at the last holiday gathering 8 nights ago. I'd brought a simple but tasty white Bordeaux that we've liked. The hosts only had plastic glasses for use with a beer keg. I held my pinky correctly and didn't blab about it, but the taste of the wine was really off! The leftovers? They were fine.

See links at the Organizing the kitchen thread for another recent discussion on this topic. I've posted about the GSI stainless steel stemware for a couple years and it is a most airstream-like product! We toss it in a kitchen drawer with hand & dish towels. They are barely marked up at all -- the rims show no tendency to bend either!

Otherwise I can go 'Italian' and skip stemware entirely. Picardie glasses, yes. Box wine, no. (Though to borrow from the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, "Box wine will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no box wine.")
