Do you always drink out of a wine glass? I have a glass several times per week and I hate the way they behave in my dishwasher so I started
drinking it out of a juice glass. DH scoffs at me.

Yes, but I don't drink that often. My dishwasher has a special "shelf" that folds down and holds the stem of wine glasses so they don't tip over.

Sometimes we drink wine with dinner out of small non-traditional wine glasses. One or the other of us always ends up making the comment that we feel very italian (from the movies - where the "real" italian families always seem to have their wine in small juice glasses).

Of course, I have no idea if this is real italian or just movie italian.

I have a couple of sets of retro juice glasses that I use for wine, as well as a small stoneware set. Like Leanne,I also use stemless. We use our stems when we have guests.

I have some stemless glasses I use when it's just me and I'm not entertaining.

My Dad often uses a small juice glass, it's really no big deal. The wine I drink is rarely more than $10 a bottle, so I don't think the glass makes that big of a difference (except plastic of course....I would never use plastic).

I don't always use a wine glass. I do prefer it for white, so I can hold the glass my the stem so my hand doesn't warm up the glass.

I mostly use a stemless glass I got at a tasting but I wouldn't hesitate to use another kind of glass for wine drinking at home.

I can see why 'real winos' (you can tell him I called him that, lol) prefer a wine glass. You gotta' get your swirl and sniff on!

Only out of actual wineglasses. Stemless or stemmed, it doesn't matter. But to drink wine out of anything else? Inconceivable! (It makes me drink it too fast if it's in a non-wine glass )

Fwiw...I have fallen in love with Cupcake wines of late. A little pricier than what I usually drink, but very much worth it. Especially the Red Velvet variety.
(And by pricier I mean $10 vs $5 )

Why dirty a glass at all? A long straw in the bottle works for me! Seriously, I use stemless wine glasses most of the time or I hand wash stemmed glasses.

Virtually always a stemmed wine glass and lately a beautiful cut crystal one from a pair I picked up at auction. That just somehow adds to the pleasure of a glass of wine in the evening for me. I hand wash, too -- it only takes a moment.

If its casual, and just a few friends over, I use stemless glasses. They fit great in the dishwasher. I just bought some burgundy glasses recently (long stem, balloon shape), and boy they are a pain to fit in the washer

Nah. We're wine glass drinkers, mostly, but the occasional juice glass is just fine, too.

My ILs are Italian immigrants and I'm not sure they even own wine glasses. They're a formal, Sunday dinner with the whole family type of Italian family, and we always drink from juice glasses there. I'm trying to think -- but I want to say that even on holidays we don't use wine glasses. So yes, a very Italian way to have wine.

I drink mostly white wine, and I really prefer a stemmed wine glass for white wine.

I don't mind stemless for red wine, but I don't drink red very often.

Generally, I only drink wine at home so I can sleep. So straight up juice glass all the way. Cuz I'm klassy like that.

I do own a set of Vera Wang stemware, but I'll be damned if I know where it is right now.

I have dollar store wine glasses for my nightly wine. I tend to break wine glasses when I wash them so I stick to 1$ ones unless we have company. In the summer I have been known to use a plastic glass if we are outside.

I prefer a wine glass (just finished a glass of red wine in a wine glass). However, juice glasses work just as well!
I kind of like the suggestion of the straw and bottle!

The Cupcake wines are some of my favorites, too--especially the Red Velvet! I think I paid $8.99 for the bottle I bought last week.

not always-- if I'm drinking 'good' wine to savor and enjoy it, then yes-- the shape of the glass definitely enhances the aroma / flavor of the wine. But if it's just a $3-5 bottle I bought to drink with some pizza or Chinese food, for example, then I might just drink it out of a regular glass.

I have a special wine glass that dh bought for me that I always use (I have a glass of red almost every evening). A cutesy one in a 'fashionista' design. A wine glass has to have a stem, lol!

We got a set of "stemless" wine glasses (i.e. juice glass wannabes) as a gift from a winery and we usually use those. I'm not big on stemware so these two little ones are perfect.

My husband works for a winery (he makes the wine - cellar master), and we have both stemmed and stemless from there. We have an annual "pig roast" and you get a souvenir wine glass. This year they offered both and I was surprised that we went through stemless faster than stemmed! The winery is owned by family friends from Italy who lived in South Africa for a time. So I think stemless is OK, haha!

At wine fests in Germany, most have glasses that resemble juice or iced tea glasses, NOT stemware.

Unless it is warm gluwein in winter, I draw the line about using a mug for wine.

Use that juice glass!

I either use a stemless wine glass, a small juice glass, or a coffee mug. The coffee mug seems to have become my go-to, because it stays cold longer. Small juice glass is good for a bit of red, and the stemless are for when we have oenophiles over.

I only have wine glasses with stems, so usually them. I don't have a dishwasher, so I don't worry about that, but I can see how that might be a problem. But I wash by hand, so not a problem.

When I moved and all my wine glasses were still packed away and I was really wanting a glass or two of wine after a long, hard day of moving and unpacking and didn't want to go rooting thru all the boxes, I used a coffee cup. Still tasted the same!

I can relate to that one Big Bang Theory episode when Penny used a measuring cup for her wine because it was the only clean one in the apartment!

At home I usually use a wine glass and wash it by hand. Unless I'm sitting in DH's living room, then I use a regular glass because our couch has cupholder's built in the wine glass base doesn't do will in those.

But when I'm camping, it's red solo cup!
eta: I do have the tervis-like tumbler that is shaped on the outside like a tervis but the inside that holds the beverage is wine-glass shaped. Got it specifically for camping. But it just doesn't hold enough and I have to trek back to my campsite too often for refills
