Sommerlier and wine educator Jessica Bell has developed plastic wine glasses that actually enhance the taste of wine rather than spoil it, like other cheap plastic glasses do.
The idea came to her after visiting a venue that didn’t allow breakable wine glasses. She could either use the cheap plastic ones provided by the venue or buy expensive ones at $5 each, if you’re catering for a function at a venue, $5 a glass can get costly.
Her aim was to develop a wine glass that “elevates the aromas and guides the wine gently from the glass to the tongue”. So she developed HaloVino which is made from plastic and is stackable, recyclable and dish-washer safe while enhancing the taste of the wine.
