I like these glasses because they are nice and steady so I won't be knocking them over and breaking them. And I can carefully stack them in the cupboard. And they are beautiful too.
And, oh yeah, they are on sale at Target.
UPDATED: In researching a comment on the type of glasses, I also found this:
Stemmed wine glasses are mostly a French invention. The US and some parts of Europe use stemmed glasses, but many European countries such as Italy, Spain, and Greece drink wine from solid bottom glasses resembling what we in the US call juice glasses.
The stemmed glasses don't really mean anything unless you are a truly dedicated wine lover. Most people cannot tell what a wine is like any better from a stemmed glass or a solid bottom glass. source: What are the different types of wine glasses?
