    finally somebody made an invention for people like me. after breaking lots (ok maybe 6) wine glasses this year, i got a pair of silicone snifters. I can't break these no matter how many times i drop them, and they will never pick up the color or smell of the wine. i love this.

    I'm not a wine drinker, but I go through a good 10 wine glasses a year.

    I even started buying the heavier Riedel ones and people still break them.

    Do they have a thin lip? The Riedel ones are heavy, but still have a thin lip. Some people bitch about a heavier lip.

    lip seems to be about 1/8th inch. maybe a little thinner. i'm willing to put up with it in exchange for not having them break because i forgot i left one on the night table.

    I can't image drinking wine or liquor out of something other than glass.

    yeah. not sure why but i really like slightly sweet wines. maybe its all those years of passover wine when i was a kid. we never got alcohol at home when i was young, except on Passover and then all the holiday wines (Manischewitz) and Sherrys were ungodly sweet. I have normal dry reds and whites (although i cook with most of the reds) but the off-dry whites go down very smoothly. I even asked my dr if there is any harm with them; she said nah.
