GOVINO® was originally created as a trade tool to help professional salespeople showcase their wines whenever and wherever proper stemware isn’t accessible. Upon its debut in 2008, GOVINO'S very first customers included some of the world’s most renown and respected wine producers, making GOVINO the first and only unbreakable wine glass of its kind to be accepted by the wine industry!

Q. Why do GOVINO products look and perform like fine crystal?

A. All GOVINO products are made from a flexible, BPA free polymer, which properly showcases all types of wines, beers, and spirits. GOVINO products are recyclable – but better yet – they are totally reusable.

Q. How do I care for my CLASSIC SERIES GOVINO products?
A. To keep your CLASSIC SERIES GOVINO products lustrous, and to maintain their elegant shape, HAND WASH ONLY, with a non-abrasive sponge, then buff dry with a lint-free towel or paper cloth.

Q. How do I care for my DISHWASHER SAFE SERIES GOVINO products?
A. Our new TOP RACK DISHWASHER SAFE line of products are durable enough to withstand domestic dishwashers (TOP RACK ONLY.) To avoid water spots, buff with a lint-free towel or paper cloth.

Q. Still unsure how to wash GOVINO?
A. Check the base of your GOVINO product to find the proper care instructions. When in doubt, “bottoms up!”

Q. What is the difference between GOVINO CLASSIC and DISHWASHER SAFE SERIES?
A. Our DISHWASHER SAFE series is made from Tritan™. Whether you drop it or wash it, a product made with Tritan lasts. Tritan from Eastman is a durable plastic that has much greater shatter resistance than other plastics and glass. It won’t warp or crack in the dishwasher. Not only is Tritan a BPA-free plastic, it doesn’t contain BPS. Tritan plastic will amaze you with a glass-like look and feel.

Our CLASSIC series is made out of Polyethylene terephthalate (PETG), which is a plastic resin of the polyester family. PETG products are safe for both single and repeated use, and are completely BPA-free. To keep the shape and luster of your GOVINO, hand-wash only.

Q. How do I recycle my GOVINO?
A. All our products are recyclable. Our CLASSIC SERIES is a number 1 (think of a water bottle) and our DISHWASHER SAFE is a number 7. Numbers, which can be found in the center of the triangle located at the bottom of your drinkware, identify what type of plastic it is. Both series can be recycled in your recycling bin at your home or business.
