With the arrival of summer, thousands of people will be heading outside to take advantage of the good weather that will (we hope) hit the market. Be it at festivals, sporting events, local parks or simply in their own back gardens, everyone will be hoping to enjoy some al fresco drinking in the sun.
However, enjoying a simple glass of wine, flute of bubbly or refreshing cocktail outside has always posed a problem – poor plastic glassware!
We’ve all been there… thin plastic throwaway glasses that crack and shapeless wine glasses that fall over – neither of which add anything to the enjoyment of the liquid in the glass.
Fortunately there is now the perfect solution: govino, the go anywhere wine glass designed in Napa Valley, California.
Made from high quality BPA free polymer, which reflects a wine’s colour and aromatics much like crystal, govino glassware is elegant, shatterproof, reusable and recyclable. With its unique ‘thumb grip’ design govino is the way to experience drinking this summer.
Simon Swift, Managing Director, The Wondering Wine Company comments: “Enjoying a glass of wine or a G&T in the sun should be pleasurable in every way, so why should anyone pay good money for a bottle or cocktail, and then be forced to drink it from something cheap and flimsy? With govino, consumers get the best of both worlds, a good quality drink in a good quality glass; it’s the ultimate drinking experience, especially when the sun shines!”
govino is available in three sizes, perfect for red and white wine, cocktails and a stylish flute for bubbles. A matching decanter completes the range allowing wine to be served safely at major events, meaning that any outdoor drinking experience is truly complete.
govino will be used by The Wondering Wine Company throughout the summer at a number of events including: Royal Ascot, Hard Rock Calling, The Wireless Festival, The Olympic Park concert series as well as numerous other sporting and cultural occasions.
In addition the range is being used by Fortnum and Mason & Fever Tree premium mixers at their summer pop up events as well as Shake Shack, one of the hottest London restaurant openings this summer.
Consumers can buy govino from retailers including Whole Foods nationally, online from Around Wine and a growing number of wine accessory and home ware retailers.
