[Wine Bliss] Musical Wine Glasses

This post was sponsored by Uncommon Goods. The opinions below are all my own, and as always, I only share products with you that I am personally happy with/stoked about/love so much or intrigued by so much that I have to share. Photos are courtesy of Uncommon Goods. 

After a long, hard day (and there have been many of those lately. You too?), the sound of someone pouring a glass of wine is music to my ears. Ahhh…

But what if your wine glass actually did, literally, play music?

Among their wide assortment of new products this season, Uncommon Goods released a brand new set of musical wine glasses (set of 2, $65).

I kind of am super in love with the idea of these glasses.

Musical Wine Glasses

I read about a ton of new products every single day, and I have to say: this one intrigued me like no other. As a wine lover and a music lover, as well as being someone who is always looking for creative ways to entertain guests and give them something to talk about at our parties, I fell in love with this product sight unseen. You know how there are some things that you could just sit there and watch over and over? That’s me and the YouTube video showing how these musical wine glasses work. Check it out:

If you are having trouble viewing the video above on this site, you can view the video on YouTube directly.

This product fascinates me, and I am pretty sure if someone bought it for me (hint, hint), I would just sit there drinking wine and playing music on my wine glasses. All. Day. Long. You could come over and we could play your favorite song while we enjoyed a glass of red. Or three. I bet you and I, we could get pretty good at making up songs. We could start our own musical wine glass band. We’d travel around the world, touring vineyards, playing our wine glass music. We would get our own reality TV show. And then we’d fight a lot and end up hating each other and suing each other over the rights to our awesome wine glass songs.

On second thought, let’s just start by getting the glasses.

The Deets

Each musical glass holds 25 ounces, so these are lovely large red wine goblets. Musical notes are labeled on the sandblasted fill lines and grooves on the outside of the glass. The glasses are made in Germany and then decorated in Reno, Nevada. The custom packaging is 100% recycled, recyclable, and compostable. And, even though these are magical musical wine glasses, they are still dishwasher safe.

How It Works

The instructions are simple: fill the glass with the wine or other beverage of your choosing, then run a moistened finger around the rim of the glass to make the music. As you drink your beverage, the notes will change. You can read more about exactly how it works on Uncommon Goods.

I’ve watched the video so many times (I have issues, I know) and I am still amazed. Morgan, the Product Manager at Uncommon Goods, actually has a really cool post on the Uncommon Goods Blog about his own experiment testing out the musical wine glasses straight from the production floor.

So there’s one cool product for you to check out on this Wine Wednesday. What do you think of this concept of musical wine glasses? Would you buy this? And if so, can you come over so we can be wine/music geeks and sip some red while playing some tunes on our wine glasses? We would just have to make a pact that we would never be on a reality show together about our wine glass band ;)

Cheers, friends! There will be a LOT more Wine Wednesday posts coming to you over the next few months, because SOMEONE (ahem) is headed to Sonoma soon… WOOHOO! I am so excited I can hardly stand it! Be sure to follow me on Instagram to follow my trip!

    Mr B and I are both musicians and wine lovers, so I love these glasses! I am definitely putting these on our wish list for the holidays *and* on my blog’s Gift Guide this year too. So cool. Thanks for sharing!

    These could be dangerous if you take music-making seriously; drink and fill and repeat to get all the needed notes?! Very original gift for wine lovers such as I :)

    I can imagine lots of filling and refilling in order to fully explore the possibilities of these glasses. What a cool idea, and I love that these are functional in two ways (holding wine and a conversation piece) and art at the same time!

  • Let’s, Krista! So fun! And dangerous… :)

  • That’s great Renee! Thanks!

  • Yvonne- I still haven’t seen that movie, believe it or not!

  • Lizzie- dangerous indeed! ;)

  • Kelsey – that’s a very valid point! We have to put the wine down? What? Maybe get one set to drink, and the other to play music. Then you have your second glass already waiting and fully aerated ;)

  • Pech – I do love functional items that are conversation pieces, too! Also: I’m glad my comments are working but now it’s appearing that they’re no longer “nesting” underneath even though I am clicking replies directly to your comments. Ah, can’t win with technology :)
