Bed, Bath & Beyond has several to choose from. Pier 1 Imports had a nice selection last time I was there.

I got my hanging wine racks from Cost Plus/World Market. They were something like $14 each.

For inexpensive wine glasses I would go to Target...although Cost Plus might have some cheap ones too.

Certainly not the cheapest, but they have a nice selection of glassware and wine accessories: www.wineenthusiast.com They are having a sale at the moment (isn't everyone?). I've suggested to my wife that she can always find a present for me there for either my wine or single-malt scotch obsession.

Go to a local restaurant dealer. They have sturdy wine glasses that won't break in your hand while washing them.

From Amazon Set of 12 for $23 and change



Actually, Amazon has a wide selection of wine glasses for both reds and whites or even the Redneck Wine Glass

We bought some at the Lennox outlet store. They had Robert Mondovi glasses (great glasses) at a "reasonable" price.

I second the Reidel suggestion - get 'em at Target or BB&B or lots of places for not a ton of cash...
http://www.riedel.com/

http://www.target.com/s/riedel

http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/stylepage.asp?RN=655

Ace Mart (and other Rest. supply places) have cheap ones, but in your hand it's really easy to tell the difference. One is like a jar, the other is thin and fancy...

Just depends how drunk your guests/users are gonna be!

I have a couple cab/Merlot of these, $25 ea. I wouldn't call them cheep but you can definitely spend much more on others. They're a crystal/ glass blend and are very clear without waves.

The shape of the glass is important to the taste ... how expensive the glass is not so much.

5 glass shapes will cover all wines ... I heard this from the president of Reidel ... and tasted wines from all different glass shapes ...

The target Reidel deal looks like a real steal ... if you like reds you need three different glass shapes. One style will cover whites - and a flute for sparkling wines.

You can keep using those, Old Thunderbird reacts well with the wax coating for that extra special flavor.
