Today, I am going to do something that I have never done on this site before. I am going to do a product review!
DUH DUH DUUUMMMMM!!!!
My wife grabbed a 4 pack of this plastic wine glasses from Govino when she was at HEB the other day.
I saw this box and decided that it was time for me to be snobby and just lay the hammer down on these “glasses.” I may have only paid a few bucks for each of my wine glasses but at least they are glass!
I loaded up both barrels of my sawed-off shotgun of hate and opened the box. I found 4 plastic cups inside…about 46 cups shy of a solo cup pack. This will be an easy review!
I picked up one of glasses and held it.
Something weird happened…heavenly rays of glorious light broke through the clouds and illuminated my kitchen. I heard angels singing songs older than mankind. My kids stopped fighting and began to clean their rooms. In short, magic happened.
It was so comfortable to hold! There was even an ergonomically designed notch to rest my thumb.
I poured a glass of wine and took a drink. The plastic did nothing to change the flavor. After many minutes, I tried the wine again. No plastic flavor!
It was also very light weight. Surely, there was no way that it was actually as sturdy as it advertised. To test it, I held (the now empty Govino) at normal height and dropped it onto my kitchen tile. It bounced around a bit but no damage. Not even a scratch. I also dropped it from about 8 feet (in the event that I ever entertain Tim Duncan at my house) and it just bounced. No damage at all.
Now, time for my verdict.

I have been using the set for a while now and I totally want to replace my entire collection with this bad boys. They are nothing short of amazing. Go, buy them now and learn the gloriousness that is the Govino!! Here is a link to help you get there faster:
