Stemless VS Stem and Crystal VS Glass

Muddirtt | Apr 23, 2014 12:07 AM

I'll admit that I'm the type to drink cheap Yellow Tail red merlot right out of the bottle, or ice cold slushy Mad Dog or Night Train, especially when camping. Maybe this is why I'm content with regular drinking glasses for wine and have never bought wine glasses in my 30+ ott years.

However, I'd like to start stocking a few wine bottles (not Mad Dog or Night Train, lol) for company or whatnot, hence the "need" for an actual goblet thing. Maybe for some absinthe also.

I like the idea of zero stems for the longevity of the glass and also the industrialist minimalistic futuristic design of them. Is there a reason for stems?

And what are the perks of crystal versus glass?

EDIT:
Perhaps I should've put this in the "Wine" section. My bad if this is the wrong section.
