Today’s young wine industry takes things much less seriously than in years past. The colorful world of natural wine has hit the mainstream and, while many of the wines can look and taste just like traditional, commercial wine, there’s a fun-first approach to drinking and enjoying wine. As such, the standards for serving and presenting wine have changed. Who has the space for an army of “proper” wine glasses? In a pinch, a halfway decent pint glass is sufficient. So don’t sweat the super expensive, hype-fragile glasses.
Today’s best wine glasses are dishwasher-safe, easily storable, and, most importantly, fun. Whether you’re opting for a stemless tumbler, a chic stemmed glass, or a flat bottom cup, you’ll want to pick out glasses that work for you. Etsy can be a great destination for unique vintage wine glasses that will be sure to start a conversation at your next dinner party. But, if you’re looking for new, readily available wine glasses, you’ve come to the right place. These are the best wine glasses you can buy right now.
Schott Zwiesel Pure Cabernet Glasses
If you’re in need of a great, all-purpose set of wine glasses, look no further than this Schott Zwiesel set. While they’re labeled as red wine glasses, the stylish tapered glass atop a sturdy stem will work perfectly for any wine you’re enjoying. Plus, the thinner shape will save space in your cabinets or on a glass rack.
Libbey #8551 Vina 10.5
While this 10.5 oz glass is billed as a wine taster, no one will bat an eye if it’s used at your next dinner party. In fact, these svelte glasses fit snuggly on shelves or in a cabinet and will work for any style of wine. You won’t find this glass on many “best of” lists but real ones know this is a stellar wine glass. Plus, it doubles as a solid option for beer, particularly saisons and sours. You won’t find these glasses on Amazon or most chain stores so you’ll need to shell out for a set of 24. But believe me, you’ll be happy you did.
Bormioli Rocco Stackable Bodega Glasses
If you want to buck the expectation of stemmed wine glasses, go for the Bormioli Rocco Bodega Glasses. The 7.5 oz option works just fine for most wines, especially reds, and is exceptionally convenient. Made from tempered glass, they’re durable enough to handle the dishwasher and can stack comfortably in a cabinet. They’ll also work just fine for small coffee drinks, amaro, whiskey, and, of course, water.

Simple, refined, and high-quality, the Libbey Signature Kenfield Estate glasses are true workhouses. The curved glass itself is great for any style of wine. And durable and dishwasher safe. While they might not be particularly fancy, they evoke a sense of tradition with their classic shape.
Rastal Harmony Wine Glasses
The Rastal Harmony glasses are yet another solid stemless choice. The style has become popular in the craft beer world as the curved glass accentuates complex aromatics. Plus, it’s comfortable to hold and easy to clean.
Schott Zwiesel Tritan Pure Beaujolais Wine Glasses
If you’re looking for an eye-catching set of wine glasses, this option is the way to go. The angular, oversized, seamless glass bowl feels particularly modern and will help showcase the aroma of your favorite wine. While these will work just fine with any style of wine, we’d recommend a particularly juicy red.
Luigi Bormioli Atelier 9.25 oz Champagne Glasses
And, last but not least, we had to highlight a quality set of champagne glasses. These handsome shapely glasses are built for your favorite bubbly. Plus, the thin shape will save precious storage space. The crystal glass is durable enough to handle a dishwasher but we’d recommend giving them a handwash after enjoying some prosecco or champagne.
