Dinner the patio. The sporadic picnic at the park. The summer day on the boat. What do all these three scenarios need? Outdoor wine glasses.
Where to Wine
The summer is full of opportunity to wine your way through the great outdoors. Here are a few of our favorite outdoor places to drink wine:
By the pool.
Relax with a good book and a glass of wine for hours. This is the ultimate me-time!
Though you should never drink and drive, drinking as a passenger on a boat is a hobby worth having! Check with the laws of the lake or beach where you plan to do your boating before cracking open a bottle.
On a camping trip.
You don’t have to be glamping to want a bottle of wine to finish off a day in wilderness.
Okay, you don’t have to go all “Into the Wild” to enjoy nature. Call some friends over to share a bottle beneath the stars and enjoy nature in your own backyard.
What makes a wine glass an “outdoor wine glass”?
You can take a regular wine glass outside and nobody is ever going to stop you. That is, if it’s legal to drink in the place where you’re carrying it. But that technicality aside, yes, any wine glass can make its way outside. But the real question is should it?
Outdoor wine glasses are wine glasses with the durability for outdoor life. Some outdoor wine glasses sacrifice the elegant look of a real wine glass when they choose outdoor wine glasses, but it’s not at all necessary.
Keep it Classy
If you’re going to drink a bottle of wine, you might as well do it right! Avoid outdoor wine glasses that:
- Aren’t clear. Is a wine glass really a wine glass if it’s not crystal clear?
- Aren’t unbreakable. Kinda defeats the whole point.
- Don’t look like wine glasses. Just because you call it a wine glass, does it really make it one?
- Dishwasher safe. Believe it or not, there are outdoor wine glasses on the market that aren’t!
