Like wine? Like wine but also like to think of yourself in a midevil setting? Here’s some fun info on what to throw in your drink holder:
You probably already know that to enjoy wine to it’s fullest potential, then you should be using a wine goblet. However, there are two superstars of the wine goblet world that you should consider for all of your wine drinking. In the red corner we have glass wine goblets, smooth sophisticated and elegant, and in the blue corner we have the robust and traditional pewter wine goblets. Let the battle commence.
Glass Wine Goblets
The great thing about glass wine goblets is that they enable you to see the wine that you are drinking (like our cup holder feature that allows you to see most of the glass inside it). An important part of the wine drinking experience is looking at the color of the wine, holding it up to the light and assessing it’s depths and viscosity. Glass wine goblets are perfect to enable you to do this.
A further thing to consider about glass wine goblets is the ease of getting hold of more. They are often made in large batches, which means if you break one they are easily and fairly cheaply replaced. This is very important when it comes to having all matching glasses for your dinner party.
Pewter Wine Goblets
Pewter wine goblets are the granddaddy of wine goblets. They are robust, reliable and fun to be with. Unlike glass wine goblets they won’t break easily and they are so strong, that they can be handed down through the generations. Pewter wine goblets also allow the owner to display a sense of personal style, much like the newer wheelchair accessories.
Drinking wine out of a pewter goblet is not a common experience for many people and this gives them an edge when you choose to use them for your next candlelight supper. They become an instant talking point and of course it goes without saying that they are great for drinking wine from.
In the battle between glass and pewter for your wine goblet affections, it is very hard to pick a winner. Both a great for wine, and it is really down to individual tastes which ones you go for.
