When it comes to the evening tipple, no need for a crystal goblet (especially if the vintage on offer is a go-to everyday table wine). A simple, sturdy, chuck-in-the-dishwasher, double-as-water-glass vessel does the trick. Here’s a roundup of our favorites:
Above: Francesca’s choice for everyday is the Alessi Wine Goblet, designed by Jasper Morrison, which easily fits in the dishwasher; $9 each at Unica Home.
