Get this awesome product here: Hand Painted Wine Glasses by Valentina Paris
My husband and I love red wine – we don’t have a chance to open up a bottle as often as I’d like, but when we do I really love having nice stemware on hand to enjoy it. A few of our nice wine glasses have broken over the years, so I was excited to order this pair of handpainted glasses by Valentina Paris. I opened up the box and took out the carefully wrapped glasses and was immediately wowed! First of all, these are HUGE! Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of going to a high end restaurant or high class winery for tasting knows that those who are serious about their red wine use very large goblets to drink, so that they can fill them only less than half full and have plenty of room to swirl the wine around to help it aerate and be able to get all the wonderful aromas. These Valentina Paris glasses are perfect for that – in fact I think having the painted design just on the lower portion of the glass provides almost a nice marking of how full I should probably make my red wine in order to be able to swirl it around without fear of accidentally spilling out of the glass in the process. Speaking of the painting, this is so beautiful! I normally include photos in my product reviews, but I just don’t think that my point and shoot camera can do these glasses justice! The design starts with metallic black swirls using a raised paint, and then some of the resulting shapes are filled in in tones of amber, rose, blue, and metallic gold. I love how organic the design is and the fact that every one is slightly unique. The glass is also very sturdily constructed – the stem feels very solid and is comfortable to hold and the rim is smoothed so it is perfect for drinking. At under $30 for the pair, these are a great deal – I would definitely consider getting them as a gift for some wine loving friends or for a wedding or bridal shower.
