Ran across this article. It's an history of various styles of wine glasses in ancient Greece.

Looks a little similar to a mason jar.

Cool article, I wonder if we took a poll what we would find out about the cups each of us use to drink wine? I really don't like long stem glasses myself, I like the stemless glasses.

My wife and I like our giant goblets... however... they don't fit very well in the dish washer... so we are back to a traditional red wine glass.

my favorite glass has a 4 inch bulb-base and a 2.5 inch opening. I find that I can swirl the wine and have the glass trap the aromas. It acts like a "nose megaphone" so that you can get a real intense smell. Great is you want to check out a wine's subtile components.
