Designing and developing the best stemless wine glasses is a tall order, but Target delivered. These are made for portability and aesthetic Instagram stories alike. While other stemless wine glasses rival medieval goblets (e.g., they’re huge), these retain an elegant shape while still holding a hefty pour. We love that the shape tapers inwards toward the top and that the glass is thin while still being durable. Sleek, dishwasher-safe, and affordable. Can your Riedel glass compare?

FAZEEK, the Australian homewares and lifestyle brand, knows everything about leveling up your life at home. From its tableware to home goods collections, everything speaks to the joy and vibrancy found by incorporating color into your space. And while most stemless wine glasses retain a clean and classic appeal, these wavy vessels are totally on-trend for 2023. It’s true that FAZEEK has considered every detail, and because it uses borosilicate glass for its pieces, these glasses can handle both hot and cold temps.

While our pick for the overall best stemless wine glasses were affordable, these CB2 bodega-style vessels impressively blend budget with beauty. Each stemless glass comes in at under two dollars while still ensuring the signature CB2 quality you know and love. The feel is distinctly European, bringing an effortless elegance to any happy hour. We love how the smaller construction fits in the hand and the stackable function keeps them looking sleek if displayed in open shelving. And with an average 4.6-star rating from over 800 reviews, it’s clear we’re in good company.

While I always pack light for a camping trip, I make room for the essentials: a good book, card games, and boxed wine. (I write that with zero shame.) Of course, I’ve long been on the hunt for the best wine tumbler that’s chip-resistant and boasts unparalleled durability. But y’all, I was after the basics—so when I found these gorgeous tinted glasses, I scooped them up immediately. Designed from the brand’s signature Tritan Copolyester—a shatterproof, durable, and dishwasher-safe material—these are perfect for backyard hangs and camping trips alike. It’s just a little way I love elevating the everyday.

Growing up, my mom kept separate shelves for her favorite red and wine glasses. As a kid, of course, I thought this was a bit ridiculous and unnecessary. But now, as a discerning adult, I get it. Red wine glasses tend to be taller and boast a larger bowl. This allows for the aromas and flavors of bigger, bolder wines like Merlot or Malbec to fully emerge and develop, upping the experience all the more. But as a result, red wine glasses often take on the dreaded, aforementioned goblet-like shape. No thanks—we’re still sipping with elegance in mind. That’s why I love these glasses’ tapered, edgy silhouette. Each glass still allows you to enjoy a red to its full potential, while keeping you from feeling like you’re drinking wine from a basin.

  • Size: 17 ounces
  • Dishwasher-safe: Yes

These white wine glasses keep things simple but stylish. We prefer a thinner glass that still maintains its durability—and this set stacks up. As white wine glasses go, these have perfected the shape. They boast a narrower bowl, slight tulip shape, and a tall frame that helps retain the fruity flavors of your favorite white or rosé.

  • Size: 15 ounces
  • Dishwasher-safe: Yes

No roundup of the best stemless glassware is complete without a nod to bubbles—and even without the stem, these glasses are a beautiful evolution on the classic champagne flute. They’re durable while still looking sleek in hand. Plus, if you’re a champagne lover like myself, you’ll enjoy that the long-tapered construction enhances the bubble-sipping experience.

  • Size: 10 ounces
  • Dishwasher-safe: Yes (place on the top rack only)
