After breaking lots of glasses, we came upon the idea of sock dividers. Bed, Bath and Beyond sells these for the OCD crowd, an upside down wine glass fits perfectly in the honeycomb shaped sock holder. We haven't broken one since. Actually my DW suggested we can cut down on the number of wine glasses we carry since we aren't breaking them any longer.

Difference between a fine wine expert and a wino...?

Expert takes it out of the bag...

Our coach came with a bartenders glass holder.

It is a piece of wood with dovetails cut across it front to back that the feet of the class slide into holding them by their stems upside down.

They should be common item at supply house or can be made with a router.

We have a few regular wine glasses stashed for guests. A grid like system out of plastic, holds them in place.

The DW and I use four (No, not one for each hand! But in case we do a change over in mid night flight!) stemless wine glasses. NOT the ones that ind of roll around with curved wine bottoms, but the ones with a flat spot on the bottom for setting them down. One criteria when shopping, was to look for thicker glass vis the real fine thin glass. Still good quality, but the thicker glass is a bit more robust. We usually buy them in a box of 6, and yes we do break them from time to time, and start looking for replacements when we get down to only 4 remaining.

They store upside down in the same plastic grid grates as the normal with stem wine glasses.

Chrystal or China or Fine glass does not change the taste of the wine.......the only thing all 3 of them do for sure .........is break.
Your pictures remind me of the years I lived in Saudi Arabia except you have fancier equipment than i could obtain. WE used a 5 gallon jug hole bored in the lid and 1/4 plastic tube sealed in the hole with silicone. Other end of tube ran down to a Rauche Grape Juice bottle. I made a lot of wine in those years. It might not have been good wine but you could not run to the corner liquor store either.

I'm confused. Seems like most of you pour it OUT of the original container, THEN drink it.
It saves time, money and the environment to drink it straight from the
original container. Brown bag optional.

I belong to a rally group with several people that enjoy their wine, especially in glass. The group was originally comprised of PopUp owners, (most of whom have moved to "the darkside" - large motorhomes or 5th wheels). The conversation frequently turned to, "did your nice wine glasses survive"?

So, as a joke, I borrowed a brand new hardened mil-spec Pelican transport case from work, (normally used for sensitive lab equipment). I modified the cushy foam inserts to fit six wine glasses.

When it came time for cocktails/wine/campfire I brought out this HUGE, case locked with a padlock and slammed it onto the solid wood RVPark table.

I opened it and pulled out two beautiful crystal narrows stem wine glasses! Oooos, ahhs, and applause, and a couple of people actually fell out of their chairs laughing!

Not really practical. But man those wine glasses travelled very well!

the Dollar Store has "nice" plastic wine glasses-they even bounce off the cabinet or floor-a time or two, upon opening the cabinet,until they break. I broke several "fav" wine glasses before we got to this

Yes, it is a little tacky-but- we are ruffing it, aren't we?

Wine glass storage

I agree that wine should be drunk from a GLASS glass. We made a rack that holds four glasses upside down and we mounted it over the dinnete right next to the window.At that location nobody will hit it. We have had it there for eight years and have not broken a glass. If you go to any flower shop, ask them for some of the plastic mesh sleeves that are placed on flowers for shipment. Our florist throws them out by the hundreds every day. We put them on every other glass so the glasses do not rub on each other or clink when traveling. If you are interested maybe I can find someone to show me how to post a picture

We use 2 different type of wine glasses.
Red wine we use old jelly jars or mason jars.
White wine we use stemless wine glasses.
We do put a beer coozie to protect them

We are not full timers but my wife does drink a lot of wine, we have both Acrylic and Glass, both get coozies put around the top so they don't break or get scratched during transit.
I'm a Captain Morgan and Coke drinker or Jack and Coke so the bigger the mug the better for me
