    Best wine glasses?

    What are the best wine glasses for pool side? I thought it would be easy finding some plastic ones, but the online reviews are terrible on most. Tervis has the "goblet" which looks cool, but $20 each?

    I've wanted to try the Govino glasses but have not had a chance to...
    About $4 a piece.

    Stop by Costco. We just picked up a six pack of wine glasses for about $20 IIRC.

    I just read up on amazon that the Govino as type 1 plastic that is toxic, and they melt in the dishwasher. Ouch.

    I'm thinking about trying a set of GSI stemless plastic wine glasses. REI sells them. $6.50 each.

    I'll check out the costco ones.

    So far the Costco ones have survived the top rack of the dishwasher. The only "downside" is that they are colored, two of each - three tinted/light colors. It doesn't bother my wine experience - I'm a Green Fin from Trader Joe's kind of guy, but some may not like them because of the color.

    I bought some clear goblet size glasses at Target for about $2 a piece a month or so ago, one went through the dishwasher - came out a little hazy but otherwise ok.

    My wife bought some at a discount store here in Fayetteville. Multi colored to avoid mix-ups. They don't go in the dishwasher (none of my wine stuff ever will) but they clean easily and don't break when dropped.

    IMO, Tervis are worth every bit of the cost. They stand behind their product 100%. Me and many friends have all sent our cups back to be replaced with new cups (at no cost) and they do their best to preserve the specialty logos we have (Colleges, and The Masters Golf Tournament). We use them almost exclusively now for day to day drinks. And I *hate* drinking out of plastic normally, but love my Tervis Tumblers.
