We think even the pickiest sommeliers would approve of this reusable duo (though the Two-Buck Chuck you’re fond of drinking may not be so lucky). Originally designed for traveling wine salespeople to use when offering samples of their wares, the pro-quality, easy-to-transport decanter and glass are made of BPA-free polymer (they won’t shatter, even if you drop them). Toss ’em in your bag for your next picnic, concert in the park, wherever—they do “go anywhere,” after all.
The quality of this product is abysmal. I don't why they bother emphasizing that they won't shatter. I bet they'd bounce, though, given the cheap plastic construction. I won't be tossin' 'em anywhere as they'd surely collapse under the slightest amount of weight. Wildly disappointed I wasted hard earned BB points on this product.1
I picked this up on impulse while shopping on Birchbox and am so happy I did! I use it for water on my nightstand.4
These are great to use on the go or for a picnic/tailgate. DO hand wash them because they will lose shape/color immediately. The thumb notch is a fun addition.4
I really like how sleek the decanter looks and the glass fits over it nicely!5
Reasons why I bought this:
* I already own a 4-pack of the glasses, so this expands the set.
* I live in California, which is now effectively all wine country. But I also live right in the middle of wine country, so much wine is consumed. Plus, the weather is always nice. I think it's a against the law for there to be bad weather there. So anyway, it's almost always picnic weather. Govino is super light, it won't add weight to the picnic basket.
* My friends are clumsy. They break stuff. Hopefully they won't break this. Note that I won't admit to being clumsy.
But I also like using this as a water carafe for the nightstand, or for "morning juice" like mimosas and bloody marys at brunch.
Love this pair! Mind you they are plastic but they look like crystal in my kitchen! Plus I can take them on a picnic:)5
I very happy with the Govina "go anywhere" decanter and red wine set. I can't wait to pack it up and head out on vacation. This is so light and you feel like your drinking wine out of a glass and not a plastic cup. Fab!4
This is used as a night stand set... but can be used on almost any occasion. Pretty crystal clear cup and the decanter is so pretty it can be used as a vase. Nice set for breakfast too. Serve up some OJ or apple juice. I recommend getting the additional cups that are available on the Birchbox site.5
Very practical--I already had a set of 4 govino glasses, so I knew the material and relative quality/heft of these items, but this was my first decanter. I've loved having it around, especially for small groups and still looks great and cleans easily.
I've only had my set for a week or two but we've been using our govino glasses for about a year and expect the decanter set to have a decent age as well.
This is completely my fault because clearly polymer is not glass but these are PLASTIC. Not something I would ever want to drink wine out of. And a cheap flimsy plastic that is no duh shatterproof but is easily bendable. I am SO disappointed that I bought these. Or rather that I wasted my BB points on these. Sigh.1
