If you’re throwing a big wine party and need a way for guests to keep trackof their glasses, the traditional method is to use wine glass charms. They look a lot alike (particularly after a couple of glasses), and men often find them too jewelry-like. A fun option is to use wet-erase markers and let guests decorate their own glasses. Some will just write their initials. Others will go all-out, drawing vines, grapes, cartoons, and even wine glasses on their wine glasses. It kicks of the party with some fun and lets everybody really make their glass their own. It also saves a lot of money. One set of ┬ámarkers will last for many parties without having to buy box after box of charms. The wet erase markers wipe off cleanly and easily with a single swipe of a damp cloth. (Thanks, Erika, for pointing out the omission.)

David Honig, the Publisher, looked at what was happening in the world of wine journalism and realized there were a lot of great writers out there at the same time paying publications, from newspapers to websites, were dropping like flies. So he created Palate Press to find the best writers and create a new forum for them to sell their best work. He is a self-educated oenophile, and defers to the tremendous experience and wisdom of the amazing staff at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.

    Is ordinary washing with hot water and gentle rubbing sufficient to restore the glasses to pristine clarity, or are stronger methods in order? I’m a bit of a pansy when it comes to scrubbing my wine glasses.
