Spring: Time to Go Outdoors-What glass to use?

Spring: Time to Go Outdoors-What glass to use?

It is spring and finally beginning to feel enjoyable outside!  "Tis" the season to gather with friends and enjoy a glass of wine out on the patio.  The question is whether to use the expensive 'glass' wine glass or the durable plastic BPA free wine glasses that will alleviate the stress? 

There is an extensive supply of plastic wine glasses that are very affordable and unbreakable so they will last a long time.  Most 'plastic' glasses made today are crafted in BPA free Tritan plastic and they match in size, feel and style to quality glass wine stems of wine glass brands such as Reidel.  Many brands of plastic stemware present your favorite wine varieties at their best; with elegant tapered stems, and bowls shaped to enhance aroma and flavor.
