The govino wine "glass" is actually not glass at all. It is made from a proprietary, food-safe / pharmaceutical-grade polymer "aka" PETG, which reflects a wine's color and projects its aromatics much like crystal. Best of all... once your vino is gone your govino can be reused or recycled. This revolutionary vessel designed for the ultimate enjoyment of fine wine actually works well for any cold beverage. The unique ergonomic thumb-notch makes wine swirling most simple.

We go on vacation each year to Cabo and the villa has a pool but with only glass wine glasses. We do not like taking glass around the pool so these will be great. We will leave these at the villa in our own storage bin and use them each time we go.

These glasses are exactly as advertised: inexpensive, and good for portable wine drinking (think picnics). They are also NOT dishwasher safe, as we found out the hard way (they warp and melt into interesting, albeit still usable, shapes).

What surprised me was that while they are shatterproof, they are NOT unbreakable--the rim fractures and splits with only a minimal amount of stress (such as can be exerted by, say, an inquisitive and determined toddler, ahem...), which might limit their utility. I wouldn't recommend, for example, packing them in a suitcase for travel without a box to protect them.

Comments about govino Stemless Shatterproof Wine Glasses (Set of 4):

If you are looking for disposable glasses for a special event these would be elegant but expensive. Make sure you handwash if you want to use these for everyday. They are so thin, they warp and dent in a dishwasher.

        Compared to the stemmed outdoor glasses, these are embarrassingly bad. I am too embarrassed to use them.

            I am in love with these glasses! I got a couple as a gift in a wine basket for Christmas last and and thought they were kind of funny looking, but after I used them, I have not grabbed anything but these when I'm reaching for a glass of wine! I will wash one if its dirty before I'll grab a different wine glass. Light weight, love the thumb hole, easier to hold than anyother wine glass, and clean up perfectly with handwashing. Doesnt matter if I'm inside or outside, I use year round and would HIGHLY recommend these!

                "SHATTERPROOF" apparently means cheap-o plastic, I would have been better off buying red Dixie cups. Nice design, but flimsy material - a child could crush it in their hands.

                I gave this product to my friend who is constantly breaking wine glasses. These are great! Not being dishwasher safe is greatly outweighed by the cool factor.

                Easy to carry, great for camping (no dishwasher) but a little flimsy. All in all it held any kind of wine!
