When we have guests in, definitely.
By ourselves, occasionally with the exception of flutes for bobbles; that's almost always.
I used to be pretty particular about stemware but I've mellowed.
And while I can't afford them, my favorite glass is the Riedel Hermitage, sommelier. I'd use it for anything.

Ok Redwinger I give your wise ass remark one gold YUK. Wouldn't want you to think that nobody reads your comments.
But I am tempted by the Riedel 'Oregon Pinot Noir' glass I saw in Willamette which can hold an entire bottle..
Jenise wrote:Ditto, but like Jeff I prefer my champagne (and most 'OTHER' whites, incl Suav Blanc) in a chardonnay glass and drink most of my chardonnays out of the burgundy glass. I have a lot of other glasses that I use just because I have them, but over time I've gravitated toward a smaller array. Or, like Jim Cowan, you could say I've mellowed.
Speaking of Riedel Bordeaux, in another thread the cost of the Riedel restaurant-version Bordeaux came up, wholesale vs. retail. I can now confirm: wholesale is $67 a dozen. I just picked up a case.
