iittala Tapio White Wine Glasses
Very attractive, don't LOVE drinking out of them
Mark from Wilmette, IL– Verified Buyer
These are really cool looking, but it turns out when I want a stem wine glass they don't do the trick, and when I want stemless they're not perfect either. Having said that, they're beautiful

Great crystal. Very modern and cool. Would buy again. Delicate but sturdy. Our guests love these.

Have owned these glasses FOREVER. Never go out of style, but through human error, they do break! I just replaced several of them. Cannot recommend enough. Sometimes, put them in the dishwasher with the bottom down to clean the bottom and use a cotton swab.

Very cute and elegant, should have thought more carefully about size, 6 oz, since they were much smaller than I really wanted. Kept them anyway.

I love these glasses, having already owned some of the red wine version.
Exactly What I Was Looking For!

I bought these port glasses for my father because they are more masculine than typical glasses but are still elegant and chic. We both love them!
