Why Would I Use Stemless Vs Stemmed Glasses?

Since their arrival on the market several years back, stemless wine glasses have created quite a buzz. People either love them or can’t understand them, and there are some compelling reasons for both. The stemless supporters find these glasses easier to handle. They are also quite versatile as not only can they be used for wine, but for cocktails and even juice or soda. However, the cynics have something different to say. By holding a wine glass by the bowl not only are you marking up the glass with fingerprints, but warming up the glass with your body heat.

While this may not be so bad for red wine (as sometimes it needs to be a little warmed up if coming right from the cellar), it is probably not the best idea for a chilled white wine, especially on a hot summer day. These traditionalists typically prefer a stemmed glass as the temperature of the wine is unaffected, the bowl stays clean, and they are arguably easier to swirl.

Like most things, it comes down to a matter of preference. The stemless glasses are perfect if you are using it for more than just wine and can be doubled as an indoor/outdoor glass as well. However, if you are looking to keep those bowls clean and that white wine cold, then you may want to stick with the stems.
