We don't have a good record with wine glasses. We favoured rather attractive glasses with thin stems. Thin stems snap very easily and we were lamenting our shortage of decent glasses to our dyke friends. So for my birthday they bought me a set of these thick stemmed glasses. The glasses are quite heavy and very robust. Not one has broken some months later. But gee, they are big glasses. I am not saying a whole bottle of wine would fit in one, but it would be close.
