A wine glass that’s almost impossible to spill? Sign us up. These have a slanted base that ends in a point so the glass can roll in a circle without making a mess. Just don’t fill these to the brim, as the tilt is a little too extreme to support a full glass. If you love the glasses as much as we do, you might wanna grab the matching decanter too.

Food52 colored wine glasses

Colored wine glasses inspired by antique-shop finds…

They’re made from Borosilicate glass — the same glass used in Pyrex bakeware — which is significantly more sturdy and less prone to temperature shock than most other common glass. These have a gorgeous square-shaped bowl paired with a thicker stem that isn’t typical for wine glasses. Psst…there’s also a stemless pair with the same elegant design. ($200/set of 2, Ssense
