On our last night in Vermont, we went over to my husband’s Aunt Ellen’s house in nearby Pawlet for a drink before dinner and I loved that she served cold white wine in these Simon Pearce Norwich Beakers. I’ve long been a fan of Simon Pearce and had the pleasure of meeting him a couple years ago. We have several handblown glass decanters and vases from him, as well as our favorite whiskey glasses, which feel so wonderfully heavy in your hand. Yes, that’s whiskey with an “e” — Simon Pearce is Irish. Pearce started his glassblowing business in Kilkenney, Ireland, in 1971 before moving the operation to Quechee, Vermont, a decade later. On our next visit to Vermont, I think we have to take a page out of Ellen’s book (a book out of which I would like to take many pages) and get some of these beautiful tumblers to use for wine glasses. There’s something very welcoming about wine in a tumbler—especially when it’s as pretty as this one.
