Fifteen funny wine glasses show us how silly we can be, even when classing it up. Each of these oddities actually exist. It’s up to you to decide if they are ridiculous or awesome.
Aerating Wine Glass
This glass is for someone with a steady pour and a moderately short nose. While this glass is over-the-top, it does perform the function of aerating wine. Be very careful when you wash it.
Large Wine Glass Holds a Full Bottle
When you need to convince yourself that you don’t have a problem and only drink a glass of wine. I hate to be the first to say it, but it’s time to stop being greedy and learn to share.
Black Wine Glass for Blind Tasting
For that tough-as-nails wine friend of yours who thinks they can blind taste anything. This will definitely trip them up.
Sippy Straw Wine Glasses
Whoever named these glasses ‘Port sippers’ is a cunning prankster and I must commend them, because this is nothing like the actual glass. The official Port wine glass is a smaller modification of a standard wine glass that has a special divot in the stem so you always sip from the same side. You can see one here.
Red Neck Wine Glass
I first spotted these in Sparks, which is where you go when you’re down on your luck in Reno, Nevada. They’re actually quite solid and well made, for a Solo cup wine glass.
How I Feel… Etched Wine Glass
How many of us sit there sipping our Pinot like sophisticates while deep into the bowels of reddit or some other even darker place on the dark web. Perhaps there is a proper glass for you after all.
Hipster Wine Glass
You can buy stunning Austrian lead-free crystal wine glasses or these Ball mason jar glasses for the exact same price. I know what you’re thinking, the mason jar glasses are the only ones with lids!

Independently curated wine gifts for enthusiasts of all levels.
Ultimate Glamper Wine Glasses
For those of us who love the feeling of cold metal against our teeth. In its defense, it is quite durable and might be perfect for a sailboat, especially with floating wine glass charm.
Illusion of Wine Glasses
The one genius part of this design is that the insulation may actually keep the wine cooler. The one downside is that the last drop collects in the foot and will splash you in the nose. Be wary, and never wear white when drinking red.
This design was last spotted on Touch of Modern. The glass itself is made with borosilicate, a special type of glass with high thermal stress tolerance.
Easy-Swirl Wine Glasses
When you combine kinetic with wine glass, it usually ends in disaster. Somehow these glasses manage to wobble around a little less dangerously
Am I Drunk Already? Glass.
Feel woozy even before you start drinking. Not the highest quality glass, but then again they are bent, so what were you expecting?
Tipsy Wine Glass
This wine glass was prototyped with a Makerbot and funded by Kickstarter. Make it a personal challenge to see how long you can hold it upright without spilling.
Bubble Wine Glass
The glass is designed to always maintain a perfect sip. The balloon fills with air bubbles as you drink.
Melty Wine Glass
This is a design made of pyrex/borosilicate glass which has a high thermal resistance. If you set it down for too long, it will start to rock back and forth with increasing momentum. You may heat your wine up with your hands, but you will look real cool doing it.
No Foot Wine Glass
This glass was created by a top Austrian glass maker who’s known for making the thinest, lightest wine glasses in the biz. Why would you put something so featherweight on its side? Apparently, Mr. Zalto has a sense of humor.
