I have several lovely, large wine glasses as well as a set plus more that I got as a wedding present, some 50 years ago!
I don't use any of them as I do not drink, and nowadays nor do any of my friends!
I have a few lovely coloured large, heavy white wine glasses and I really love these but do not use them any more.

They are nice to serve fresh juice, smoothies and iced tea in.

Depending on the shape, size and weight of the stem they can be great to serve dessert in. It may sound weird but they look great and are easy to eat out of.

Having said that - not much of a drinker.
How else would one enjoy a 'glass' of wine? I do not drink at all any more,but when I did have wine,it was always out of a gorgeous wine glass!
Actually drinking iced water or any non-alcoholic beverage always seems to taste so much nicer when it is imbibed from a beautiful glass!!! I have several hand made art glass Goblets made by Colin Heaney, and these are such stupendously stunning glasses to drink from that I sometimes will enjoy using them for no special reason at all. I feel utterly decadent when drinking from them. I went to meet Colin at his studio in the early 90's and it was there that I first tasted water from one of his goblets! Colin asked if I'd like a glass of water, and when I said yes please, he handed me one of his treasures filled with lovely cool water!! I felt like royalty! As he told me, these goblets are for using, not for keeping in a cabinet!
I don't drink wine, so no.
When I use to drink many many years ago~~~
I would always drink from a lovely wine glass!

Or what would be the use? The wine would not taste as good as it should.
Always. Even on picnics I take the glass ones along.
if they are around

Most definitely YES. We are serious about wine and have a reasonable cellar(1000 bottles) that I had to talk my husband into installing and is now his pride and joy.
Wine drinking is as much about the experience and ritual as of the act of drinking. We decant our wine so that it breathes and drink from the appropriate shaped glass for the wine we are consuming. Even on a picnic or going to a BBQ we take glasses. We are fortunate to have good quality glassware. Some is saved for special friends but we use good glasses whenever we have wine. We only allow ourselves to consume alcohol on a Friday night or weekend so that adds to the sense of ceremony I think.
Yes always if your wine is in a nice glass somehow it is much more enjoyable.
I don't bother distinguishing between red and white glasses, I just use the same set for both kinds. I do have some champagne flutes for bubbly though, and ceramic goblets for mulled wine. In a pinch any old glass will do.
I don't drink but I do serve wine out of proper wine glasses. I do tend to purchase gorgeous wine glasses when I come across them!
We too have a decent size wine cellar with dozens of different glasses which we always use, even on picnics. I can think of nothing worse than having to drink wine out of a plastic or paper cup.
I just have one set of 4 plain glass wine glasses these days. I used to have more wine glasses but as they are rarely used and I have done lots of decluttering, one set is enough. Drinking wine out of plastic just isn't the same at all. It needs to be glass.
always use the correct wine glass, would not dream of using anything else.

I do if I'm out, but at home I only drink a g&t. I like sparkling wine or champagne in a glass like on the left of the above photo or a slightly thinner 1.

No... but as a teetotaler I've been known to drink lemonade out of proper wine glasses... just 'cause I can :)
I don't drink wine

It does taste better. The glasses were designed for specific wines so may as well enjoy the wine the way it is intended to be served, I drink less these day so enjoy it more. May as well use the good glasses in the cupboards!
No, I don't drink alcohol. I do like to put sparkling apple juice into a wine glass if I want to feel fancy
Yes, I do drink out of a wine glass, but if I'm at a party or a picnic, I don't mind drinking out of a plastic cup.
When we drink it, we drink it out of a proper wine glass...actually, I do. My husband drinks it out of an ordinary glass because he usually mixes it with something like Coke.
