Best method to store wine glasses for travel

I have a set of wine glasses and artist pottery cups that I want to keep in our motor home. We are looking at laying sponge down in shelving and cutting out inserts for glasses and mugs. Just wondered if anyone had a better idea?

I just use wine straws ... very compact. However, you need the long straws to get to the bottom of the wine box .

I had the same problem with wine glasses, and I used to wrap them in dish towels and store them in a shoe box for travel. Recently I saw a "tip" in Motorhome magazine where someone bought a fishing rod holder and attached one part of it (that holds the rod) to their inside cabinet to hold the stems of wine glasses. I rushed to Academy to buy one, but I found the "rod holder" things to be much too stiff...I was afraid I would break the stemware trying to get them into the holder.

So then I went to Michael's and bought foam stuff to try the "cutting out holes" for each piece. WHAT A HASSLE. It didn't take long for me to decide that wasn't worth the effort. So, I decided to put the glasses inside a basket and pack the foam stuff around them. It doesn't look very stylish, but gets the job done. I just sit the basket in the cabinet...



I did buy some "less expensive" stemware for our RV; just everyday stuff that really wouldn't upset me if they got damaged.

I threw my wine glasses away and bought "Tervis"glasses,I know it's not very "stylish" but very practical,don't have to worry about them breaking and if it's chilled wine,it stays colder longer.I wrap my wine bottles in a sheet of 1/2" foam rubber for travel.

I don't mind a paper plate, but I want a real coffee mug and a real wine glass. (Have to draw the line somewhere!!! ) I also bought one of these to carry bottles of wine... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Like they say"to each their own" ...I guess it really doesn't matter how we enjoy our wine,just enjoy it!

Cheap and easy - put a sock around each wine glass, then keep them is a small plastic potato style bin with a small bungee cord across the front. Been doing that for years and haven't lost 1 yet.

I like your idea. Plus the socks give the wine a nice bouquet.

We have some "hiking" version wine glasses. The stem unscrews and stores inside the glass itself. Yes it is plastic but haven't broken one.

We just put them back in the box they were in when we bought them. Lasted over 2 years so far...

I read somewhere on this forum a suggestion to use the divided wine bags that you get from the grocery store. Keeps the glasses from rolling around and getting broken!
