Saw these on a Crystal Wine Cruise and my husband wanted to get them. Review by Shell
My husband recently went to a wine tasting aboard a Crystal ship and used these glasses. He was so impressed on how the wine can be swirled without spilling he just had to get them for himself as well as his good buddy who is also a wine tasting fan! (Posted on 8/27/2012)
