The Doublet, A Double-Sided Wine Glass For Reds and Whites


If you’re not sure whether you’ll be serving a red wine or a white wine, you could just have an appropriate glass available for each. But that sounds like a lot of work.

The Doublet is an ingenious way to save you some trouble, by providing a compartment for both reds and whites. Even an official oenophile or self-proclaimed wine snob could appreciate the convenience.

The design is currently only a concept. So, in the meantime, have all of your glasses at the ready for when the wine snobs come over.

Wine Packaged In A Paint Bucket


Just when we thought that we’d seen it all with wine in a purse, there’s now wine in a bucket. More specifically, it’s wine packaged in a paint bucket – a design concept by Lithuania-based ad agency, McCann Vilnius.

Created to help commemorate Beaujolais Nouveau — the release of new red wines from the French region of Beaujolais — the bucket o’ wine acts as a storage and handy pouring device.

It also provides a color chart, letting the drinker know how many glasses of wine it might take to “paint” your teeth various shades of purple. So, who wants to come over for a painting party?

A Special Glass To Help Coca-Cola Taste Better Exists


Until now, we’ve been left to drink our beloved Coca-Cola out of regular non-fancy glasses, or straight from the two-liter. Well, no more.

Coca-Cola and glassmaker Riedel teamed up to design a drinking vessel that they hope will make your Coke taste better.

Just like the wine glasses that Riedel are best known for, the new soda glass hopes to enhance your whole Coke-drinking experience. No longer will we miss out on those subtle notes of high fructose corn syrup, and that mid-palate hint of caramel color. Sorry.. Big Gulp Riedels are not available.

How To Choose A Bottle of Wine, A Handy Chart


Do you ever struggle with what kind of wine to bring to a social gathering? Show up with an overly-fancy wine to a drunken house party, and you’ll be labeled a snob. Bring a box of wine to a gathering of oenophiles, and you probably won’t be invited back.

Although satirical, Wine Folly has constructed a handy guide, How To Choose A Bottle Of Wine – to help us know when to spend over $12, and when to show up with box in hand. Good luck.
