We like the way short, stubby wine glasses add a note of nonchalance to a dinner party. The squat stem glass is more casual and understated that their elongated, more fragile counterpart. Case in point: At a recent dinner party, I served drinks in low-to-the-table glasses. I noticed that guests seemed unusually at ease. Maybe it was the glass, or maybe it was the wine, but I’m convinced that shorter is better.
