For those who would rather sip their wine than drink it


When I first looked at this, I thought it was an odd joke - a wine glass designed to look like a kangaroo. 
Then I thought that it would be extremely uncomfortable to hold - and it looks rather fragile. 

It's a thing, though, apparently. This "revolutionary new invention" is called a Wine Sipper. 

I think there is a pretty good reason why people have been using versions of a cup or glass to drink wine for thousands of years - and I, certainly, have never had a desire to drink wine through a tube, or a straw. 

Winex, the company responsible for this "breakthrough", says: "The Wine Sipper, with its three steady legs and inbuilt straw, is the perfect way to sit back and enjoy your favourite glass of wine. 

"The wine glass not only stands steadily on three legs to prevent toppling over but has an inbuilt straw to safely guide the wine straight to the lips so as to not miss a single drop of the delicious beverage. The sipper fits comfortably in the palm of the hand and sits firmly on a table."

I've certainly never suffered from wine glasses toppling over - or from missing a precious drop through dribbling - but Winex insists: “The Wine Sipper is really changing the way we drink wine. It is quirky, fun and a great alternative for those that like to avoid cleaning up after a few drinks. 

"The product is easy to use, all you need to do is pour the wine into the glass and take a sip from the glass straw. No fuss, no spills and more entertaining.” 

It's a new take on port sippers, so if you want more entertainment when drinking you know what to do. 

The Wine Sipper comes in sets of two and is made from hand-blown glass. It will certainly be a conversation starter.
