I really don’t even need to write anything on this blog entry. All you have to do is gaze at this picture, which says it all.
I saw this delightful stemware at Gourmet Pantry in Blacksburg a couple of weeks ago. As you can probably tell, they are made from Ball canning jars. The product is called Hillbilly Crystal, and it is made by a company called Rich Creek Co., which is based in Patrick County.
You knew something this good had to be made locally.
The glasses are made with colored bobbles in the stems, which makes identifying one’s wine glass at a party much easier. You could also order them to match your kitchen or your dishes, and I believe the lady at Gourmet Pantry even said they had some in VT colors, which had already sold out.
I’m thinking these would be a great Father’s Day gift for the wine lover in your life.
Hillbilly Crystal can be purchased in the following places (or ordered directly from the company by going to their website here and contacting them). They ship anywhere:
