A glass a day…keeps sobriety away

huge wine glass

Have you ever thought, “Gee, I’d love to drink this whole bottle of wine–but not right out of the bottle since that’s not classy–and I don’t want to get up from the couch to do so.”

Then the inventors of the supersized, Kotula’s giant wine glass had you in mind! It fits an entire bottle in the glass, right up to the rim. Be sure to check out the hilarious video. (That’s also a party trick you can perform with some of the enormo glasses from Riedel or Bottega del Vino.)

A downside: you sure need a lot of Wine Away if it’s full of red wine and gets knocked over.

Thanks, Leah!

  1. that video is priceless. thank you kindly.


  2. That is one big ass glass (to quote Gary Vaynerchuk).

    Reminds me of when you go to a mediocre restaurant and they use thick wine/water glasses and fill them to the top. Keep it classy.


  3. I love the video!!


  4. Hilarious!


  5. I used to have a big crystal pinot noir glass that I loved. It could hold an entire bottle of wine, though nobody would believe me when I told them–it didn’t look that big. So I’d take a measuring cup and pour 750 mL of water into it for proof. (People are notoriously bad at estimating volume by sight.)

    I loved swirling and sniffing with that glass, because you could really fling around two ounces with a dramatic swoop of the arm. The problem is that when I would go back to regular stemware, I tended to slosh it out of the glass completely.

    Sadly, it broke when a plate fell out of the cupboard and smashed it into a million pieces.


  6. That reminds of last time I was in London, when every time I ordered a glass of wine at a bar I was asked “large or small?” They had normal size glasses, and then giant ones. So weird.


  7. I;m not sure this is a good idea since I am a diabetic wineau but it’s surely hilarious.


  8. Designed in Texas, presumably?


  9. Oh my goodness. Thank you

  11. Thank you for a great start to the day! The timing is priceless as I’m going to be taking care of my sister (knee surgery) for several days. If it wasn’t for my young nephew, I’d order a glass to be delivered overnite!
