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.
