It seems like the moment has come for stemless wine glass.
But first, there’s a little more work to do.
So what are stemless glasses?
“They are stem-free glassware,” said Kate Kudrow, senior research fellow at the Centre for Sustainable Beverages, in a press release.
“This means they have no stem or top, but instead a thin, porous, glass-like material that can be bent and bent inwards like a stem.”
“Stemless” glasses have the advantage of being reusable, she said, because they don’t require the glassware to be held up by a handle, like traditional stemless glassware.
They are made by Beverage and Beverage Design, and have a design and manufacturing team in place.
Baker’s, the wine and wine bar in New York City, has already started producing stemless glass.
This week, Bourbonist’s announced a partnership with the California-based Cherry Creek to launch a line of stemless bottles in January, along with a line for the Palo Alto area.
And it seems like other wine makers will soon follow suit.
Last year, Molson Coors announced that it was partnering with a Japanese bar and restaurant to make stemless wines.
It’s unclear if the Japanese bar will also make stem-free wine glasses, but we’ll have to wait and see if it does.
As for the design, Kudrow said that the stemless glass is designed to fit snugly into a traditional stem-shaped glassware holder, but will not require it to be pulled apart.
The glassware is made from a thin, flexible material that is porous and water-resistant.
Kodak has also made stemless lenses for its G&M brand of eyewear.
But what about the other part of the glass?
Koudrow said the glass is designed with a stem shape that allows for a full glass surface without having to remove any glass.
