If you are in the market for reasonably priced yet sophisticated tall red wine glasses, I found this glass that I love. I looked at Bed Bath and Beyond, Linens and Things, Target, Williams-Sonoma, Crate and Barrel, Sur la Table, Macy’s and Pier One. I’m really picky about my glass. I went into each of these stores over the course of 6 weeks, and held all their glasses in my hand. We had broken all but 2 of our red wine glasses. It was time. I looked at glasses in the price range of $5-$45/glass.
Anyway I got this one from Crate & Barrel for $7.95/glass. It is lead-free crystal. It is scratch-/break-resistant, dish-washer safe, etc. In fact I knocked one over the morning after a party with our stainless steel coffee carafe, and the glass fell into our stainless sink and did not break. They are made in Germany by some of the best glass engineers in the world. LOL – okay enough about these glasses – here they are (made of Tritan® crystal by Schott-Zwiesel). They make lots of different glasses, if you don’t like this one. I love this exact one though. At Crate and Barrel:
