The hand-painted Winter 25th Anniversay balloon has a sleek long stem, sheer rim, and rounded bowl. The balloon shape allows the aromas and flavors of the bigger, bolder red wine to emerge, increasing the flavor and enjoyment of your wine.
The ballon glass is approximately 8 inches tall and has a 16 ounce capacity. This limited-edition 25th Anniversary set includes two balloon-style red wine glasses.
While it’s the epitome of a Maine winter scene, it was actually inspired by the view outside the window of my studio in a small seaside town in Massachusetts, near Cape Cod, many years ago, long before I experienced a picturesque Maine winter.
My studio was in an old building, behind another old building, set back from the main road, the only view I had was that of large, I mean really tall pine trees and old buildings that were mostly neglected and used for storage. When it snowed, it lay on the ground undisturbed, except by the local wildlife and the tire tracks I left as I went to and from my little studio.
I liked the idea of an all season design, something not just for Christmas but for all those evenings by the fireplace with family and friends, warm and cozy while the snow falls softly outside.
