"Perfect gift for a person who loves wine"
"I bought a personalized wine glass. It's very simple and understated but I like it a lot. Cool glass and the etching seems good quality."
"Love it. Nice heavy glass. Looks great."
"These glasses were a gift for my aunt. She really liked them. I was pleased with how they turned out. I would give them as a gift again."
"I think this is a great personalized glass. I gave it to my mom for Christmas and she loved it."
Stemless wine glasses are quaint, attractive and perfect for weddings or other special occasions. The only thing that can make them even more perfect is having them customized with etched monogram designs. Shutterfly makes it refreshingly easy to turn regular wine glasses into customized works of art.
Wine is notoriously finicky and can be ruined if it is not stored properly. Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind when storing a prized bottle of wine for future use:
• Keep it away from the light. Ultraviolet rays from sunlight and fluorescent lamps can filter in through the bottle can cause the wine to develop an unpleasant aroma.
• Avoid fluctuations in temperature. Exposing your wine to significant changes in temperature will cause it to age prematurely. Most varieties of wine do well when stored at 54⁰ Fahrenheit.
• Manage humidity. Try to keep your wine storage area at around 70% humidity, if possible. This will help keep evaporation at a minimum and prevent the cork from drying out. Storing corked bottles on their side will also help prevent the corks from drying.
• Store for the appropriate period of time. Although there is a well-known saying that wine improves over time, this is not always the case. Some types of wine actually degrade in quality over time, so it is important to follow the appropriate storage recommendations for each type of wine you purchase.
Isolate your wine. Storing anything with a strong odor near your wine could taint its flavor.
Since wine is commonly served at weddings, it is a good idea to present wedding guests with stemless glasses as wedding favors. Have the stemless wine glasses personalized with your initials or a favorite saying so that they can be used as home décor once the special event is over. Dishwasher-safe bar and glassware also make great gifts for the wine enthusiasts in your life.
While you’re customizing your stemless wine glasses, why not expand your glassware collection by creating personalized glass plates, glass prints, mason jars, and cups for your home? Custom wine glasses also make great party favors for wine tasting parties. Plan an evening with friends to blind test different varietals for aromas and flavors.
