Tell me you’re not going to resort to drinking that gorgeous vintage Champagne out of jelly glasses or bulletproof wine glasses.

This is when Govino rides to the rescue. You suddenly remember you have a couple dozen of their go-anywhere Champagne flutes stashed on a shelf in the closet. Possibly leftover from your sister’s b-day party at the beach, but who remembers? 

The shape is right, slender and elegant. Thin-walled as crystal, but made from a food-safe, BPA-free polymer. And here's the good thing -- reusable. No stem, but at this point who cares?  Flute3x4box

Just pop the cork.


The four-pack tote is available at the following Los Angeles wine shops at $12.95: Silverlake Wine, Wally’s and the Wine House.

The flutes are also available at govinowine.com, where you can buy a box of 12 for $38.50, a box of 36 for $114.95, or a box of 72 for $228.95. Party on.
