It’s not a party without wine, right? And it’s not wine without the right glass for the right bottle. But whether it’s a slender champagne flute, a curvy stemless glass, or anything in between, most wine glasses have one thing in common—their thin glass composition makes them extremely prone to breakage. And that’s a surefire way to spoil a party. Fortunately, Smarty Had a Party is changing the way we enjoy wine by keeping drinkware in our hands but removing the fear of breakage. Here’s why we’re lifting a glass and saying cheers to worry-free wine glasses.
We can envision the scenarios already. Someone is wildly gesticulating with a drink in hand, forgetting that there is, indeed, a drink in their hand, and it goes flying. Wine glasses and dance moves don’t always mix. Condensation on a hot day makes a glass a little more slippery than usual.
Before you know it, you’re a one-person cleanup crew. The many nuances of wines’ flavor profiles make them perfect for a delicate palate. However, there’s no rule that says a delicate palate needs to enjoy them from delicate glassware. Shatter-resistant plastic drinkware makes parties easier by allowing the wine to flow into vessels that won’t break if someone happens to drop one.
You Can Still Have Stems
One reason wine connoisseurs frown upon drinking from a plastic cup is the way we tend to hold them. By wrapping your hand around, say, a red plastic cup, your natural body heat is transferring through the plastic and into the wine, changing its intricate composition of flavors for the worse. Fear not—you can enjoy all the notes and overtones of a glass of fine wine from a durable plastic glass, complete with a stem to shield the wine from your warmth. Our crystal-cut goblets allow for that tiny but ever-important bit of separation, and if you should handle those stems with anything less than the utmost care, you won’t end up having to sweep up any broken glass.
The Best Choice Under the Sun
With summer in full swing, the biggest reason we’re saying cheers to worry-free wine glasses is that you can take plastic drinkware out on the porch, patio, deck, or yard with no reservations. No one wants to break a stemmed wine glass or champagne flute, and it’s really a party foul when guests are donning open-toed footwear. Shattered glass and sandals really don’t go together. Smarty Had a Party takes particular joy in providing the necessities for open-air gatherings, which is why we’re happy to present disposable wine glasses that are perfect for summertime occasions. Thinking ahead to when the days get shorter, the weather cools down, and the parties move back indoors? This durable single-use drinkware works just as well in the house.
