Guinness Record Broken For World’s Largest Champagne Glass

World's Largest Champagne GlassWorld's Largest Champagne GlassHow was the record for the world’s largest champagne glass discovered and broken?

At a recent festival known as The White Night, which is an annual celebration of wine in Spoleto, Italy, for all those who can hold their liquor (and for those others who drive home the ones who can’t), the world’s largest champagne glass made its debut. Among the viewing audience, was a representative of those in endless search of world-record-breakers, the people at Guinness.

As someone who spent much time in the beautiful country of Italy, I can vouch for the wonders and vagaries of living the “dolce vita,” and the world’s largest champagne glass certainly seems integral to that tradition and experience. (Does the world’s largest champagne glass become the eighth wonder of the world or are there still seven, with the beholder of the world’s largest champagne glass actually seeing double?)

What is the purpose of the world’s largest champagne glass?

We may never know the answer to that question surrounding the importance of the world’s tallest champagne glass. Guinness reports that the world’s largest champagne glass stands nearly 7 feet tall, and can hold the equivalent of 22 regular bottles (558 ounces) of champagne. That’s enough liquid refreshment to give even the jolly green giant one huge hangover!

The world’s largest champagne glass is certainly a wonder to behold no matter where it fits into the pecking order of world wonders.

I have just one final question and concern about the world’s tallest champagne glass.

Will someone break another Guinness record for drinking all the contents of the world’s largest champagne glass?

Perhaps only time and the followers of the wine god, Dionysus, know for sure.
