Stemless wine glasses are definitely a great gift to put under the tree this Christmas because they are dishwasher-safe and unbreakable. HaloVino will launch a brand new shatterproof, stackable, glass and optimizes the aromas of the wine itself, according to OnMilwaukee.

Govino has been the leader in manufacturing of shatterproof wine glasses. However, its product has also been expensive, and for good reason.

Govino glasses, with their indentation for your thumb, already were just about perfect for picnics, poolside parties and backyard barbecues. Except for the part about having to wash the tumblers by hand.

Go ahead — throw that Govino glass in the dishwasher (top rack only). It won’t melt because the shatterproof, recyclable and reusable BPA-free polymer material is now dishwasher safe. One pack of four glasses is $22.95 at www.govinowine.com.

While stemless wine glasses are becoming more popular, there’s no sparklier time to check out all the wine tasting. You don’t have to drive to the Wine Country to experience Jean-Charles Boisset’s extravagant hospitality or sip a flute of JCB bubbly.

From the leopard-print rug to the gilded mirrors, burgundy velvet drapes, Baccarat crystal and wine-colored mirrored bar, the JCB Tasting Lounge is over the top. But when it comes to wine, the reds, whites and bubbles are completely serious, albeit pricey. Tasting flights ($50-$100) are paired with bites created by the Ritz-Carlton’s executive chef Michael Rotondo.

And guess what? You don’t have to open the wine bottle to get the party started. Fête, a new Lodi petite sirah, brings augmented reality to the wine bottle.

Using a smartphone app, scan a code on the label, and boom! A virtual fireworks show explodes on the screen, over the bottle. Snap a selfie or shoot a short video GIF, add festive props straight from the app, and spread the cheer, all without uncorking.

There are also animal stemless wine glasses, with illustration by staff cartoonist John Darkow, make great stocking stuffers for the holidays! It’s the perfect glass for your favorite wine, milk and cookies, juice and soft drinks.
