"I got this glass for my sister in laws birthday, and it turned out beautifully!"
"My wife & I always seem to have a mismatch of glasses, when we want to relax and have a glass of wine. These glasses are so comfy (not like goblets), easy to hold a reasonable amount of wine, and with our names on them......not easy to get the wrong glass! We love them! :)"
"I sent a pair to my nephew and his wife for their first anniversary. She couldn't get over how cute they are. After years and years of anniversary gifts, Shutterfly is my new "go-to"."
"With the new trend toward stemless, these glasses are a great gift for bride and groom. I used the "bold" setting on the font to make the names show a bit more. There was one very small ding next to one of the engravings, and the glass was replaced immediately. Satisfaction guaranteed! Love Shutterfly!"
"Love the personalization! Really happy with the quality of this glass!"
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.
