The Sands Of Wine

Drink in the moment with these captivating wine glasses, designed with a working hourglass that celebrates the beauty of time spent toasting food, wine and friendship. Flip a glass to spark its timer--and the table conversation--over vibrant streams of sand swishing and crashing for ten minutes a side. With every ounce poured, a bottle of your favorite vintage tastes that much sweeter as it makes its way around the table in decadent design. Bold and interactive, this set of four brings good taste (and great fun) to the table. Made in China.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

    Had a small leakage problem called the company and they were nothing less than awesome in helping me resolve the problem. The glasses are very cool but maybe slightly under designed, they are very fragile and difficult to clean, although my girlfriend ADORES them! Great idea and so thrilled she is happy!

      I gave it as an anniversary gift and the recipients loved how unique the glasses were.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Prompt delivery. The only complaint I had was that the glasses were really smudged and kind of grungy looking. Minor problem though.

                  I simply love these glasses. I bought them as a bridal gift and the bride LOVED them. Other ladies at her shower also purchased sets because they fell in love with them also.

                    I bought these wine glasses as a wedding gift for a wine lover friend. She (and her new partner) LOVED them! They are unique, whimsical and great for conversation! I plan to buy this item again, and probably the martini glasses that match!

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    The customer service person that took my order, was light hearted and a pleasure to talk with! She's a keeper, Uncommon Goods! The glasses arrived perfectly on time, and while other reviewers had problems with glasses arriving, broken, mine were not. Well done!!

                    I love this idea! For the nay-sayers, once stored upside down, they would be ready to use at that moment....think outside of the box....

                    I think the idea is good, but considering that it's only five minutes of time measured, it doesn't seem like it would be of much use or entertainment after that...

                    When I drink wine, I want time to stand still--not remind me that time is ticking by... Maybe a snow globe would be cute? When the wine is swirled, the snow would fly?

                    Fun design! The sand can go back and fourth when its set down and when you are sipping.

                    A set of four at that price would be reasonable I think. A fun conversation starter. Great for the entertainer!

                    Hi Donna. Thanks for your comment and question. We're glad you're intrigued by this timely twist on the classic wine glass!Like many wine glasses, these should be washed by hand. It's definitely okay to get them wet and clean them with dish detergent, but they shouldn't be left submerged in water. Air dry or dry with a towel after washing.

                    Functionally these don't look comfortable to the hand. Seems awkward and gimicky.

                    if it took an hour for the rotation, you could use it to monitor your drinking-

                    A little too expensive for a mostly fun glass.

                    They're eyecatching. But what's the point? They look they might easily break.

                    I love them! yeah they may not be super practical but they are so cute! A little spendy, I don't know that I would personally buy them for myself but I do love them!

                    I just don't get the point. Is the hourglass a timer on how long you have to consume a glass? It also looks difficult to hold comfortably.

                    i love the idea, but Iwould reduce the price a little and I'll add different colors of sand if possible like red,orange, pink, blue.... It'll be nice if the sand could take a little more than 5 minutes to pass through....

                    I don't see the point and they look fragile.

                    I don't get it. Isn't sharing wine with friends about forgetting the time and living in the moment?

                    Looks like a coffee table stainer to me if used to meter time of conversation. Wine glasses are already tricked up enough these days, send these back to Junktown.

                    The price is too high for a very short effect.

                    If the hour glass served a purpose, such as the time it takes for the wine to breath after pored, then the idea would be great. Right now it just seems decorative. Which is Ok but would not get me to purchase them over another wine glass set. It has the possibility of being so much better if the hour glass section served a purpose.

                    Agree with the commentator who noted the sand would run immediately and only last 5 minutes. Plus I hate hand washable anything in the kitchen/dining area.

                    Actually love the idea, but can't figure out how it works. Just one glass?

                    Dorky looking. Captivating??? Spend money instead on really good wine. THAT would spark the conversation. Why mess with an already good design by

                    Neat..but I would just be chugging my wine to finish before it ran out.

                    Love the look. Can't imagine cleaning them, though.

                    Too silly.

                    I was going to say "silly," but then I saw that several other commenters beat me too it. So let me say "silly, and not in a good way."

                    pretty but it's not like you can flip the glass over to re-set the timer until it's empty and then you have to wait 5 minutes for a refill?

                    Beth

                    It would be a nice vase. How do you clean the bottom portion of them???
