Stainless steel wine glasses: Challenging tradition and the fine art of oenophilia

Oenophiles, wine lovers and connoisseurs of this magical drink will tell you how big a mistake you will make if you decide to buy stainless steel wine glasses. This review aims to be unbiased and hence let's look at why many hardcore wine lovers and followers of the imperfect and controversial science of wine tasting will tell you to avoid adding these fashionable glasses to your collection.

  • Traditional wine glasses are supposed to be made from high quality lead crystal, or in plain English, glass. Inferior quality wine glasses may be made from inferior glass material.
  • Bordeaux and Burgundy wine glasses are designed and shaped in an intricate manner. Their bowls are delicately shaped in order to maximize and enhance the flavor and taste of different types of wine. Full bodied and heavy wines like the Cabernet Sauvignon in case of Bordeaux and Pinot Noir in case of Burgundy.
  • Besides flavor, aroma, taste and the other elements of wine tasting, there is also the visual factor. One of the most important elements of wine tasting is the delightful sight of watching the wine swirl in the transparent glass bowl. This cannot be replaced by an opaque and bland stainless steel glass bowl.

Stainless steel wine glasses: Should you buy them? Absolutely yes, and here's why

Now that you know more about the features and some specifications of the RSVP Stainless Steel Wine Glasses, here's why you should buy stainless steel wine glasses despite the controversies in the world of oenophilia.

1) Stainless steel wine glasses are very fashionable and chic

The first and foremost reason that goes in the favor or stainless steel wine glasses is their visual appeal. Guaranteed to spice up any contemporary or modern décor, these glasses have broken traditional boundaries and taken the wine drinking experience to a whole new level. Imagine the steel glasses with the stems standing tall and sleek on a kitchen bench or on a bar table with a dim light setting. If that does not get you dreamy, imagine a candlelight dinner with your partner and the light of the candle bouncing off the steely surface of these glasses. Absolutely chic, very hot and aesthetically marvelous!

2) Stainless steel wine glasses don't break that easily

RSVP does not claim these glasses to be absolutely 'drunk-proof' but stainless steel wine glasses are extremely sturdy and break-proof when compared to their lead crystal or plain glass counterparts. The fact that the drinker does not need to worry about a delicate glass, promotes a carefree drinking experience. RSVP Stainless Steel Wine Glasses are dishwasher safe too.

3) Perfect for outdoors and trips

Have you ever gone camping, with your loved one and carried along a lovely bottle of red, only to end up drinking from a steel coffee mug? We've all done that. After all, you wouldn't bother carrying your lead crystal wine glasses in your backpack, would you? They are great to be used during a backyard or a pool party, an awesome accessory to have in your RV or a backpack while camping and around your bar in general. Make them your 'travelling wine glasses'.

4) Something different – Stainless steel wine glasses are a conversation igniter

Everyone has a set of lead crystal or plain glass wine glasses. But not everyone has a set of stainless steel wine glasses. Without a doubt, if you plan to entertain a bunch of guests, these unique and exquisite glasses will be the point of conversation for the first few minutes. It always feels nice to see and do something in a way different than every time over and over again. Besides being a fantastic gift idea, these glasses can also simply be an addition to your existing collection of wine glasses.

5) Utility vs. Looks: Stainless steel wine glasses strike a balance

The stainless steel wine glasses strike a great balance between utility, practicality and the other not-so-logical elements of the art of tasting and drinking wine. No longer do you need to worry about broken glass or having to put the glasses at the right spots around the house in case of a part. Someone can knock over an empty glass and not have to feel embarrassed for breaking drinkware. You can even use the tumblers for drinks other than wine. You can even chill the glass in the fridge or the freezer to enhance your drinking experience with super chilled glasses. In a nutshell, the RSVP Stainless Steel Wine Glasses stamp a bold style statement with a power packed utility value.
