Govino is a revolutionary ‘go-anywhere’ glass

Govino Glassware

Unbreakable, reusable and recyclable, Govino is the latest and greatest in wine glasses on the market. They have forever changed the way wine is served in settings where breakable glass is prohibited.

Designed by Joseph T. Perrulli in 2008, these chic, shatterproof glasses mean that the days of sampling premium wines from plastic cups are over.

Whether you are in a vineyard, at the beach, around the pool, camping, picnicking, at a concert, festival, or on a boat, these wine glasses are ideal for any setting.

Govino products are great for the South African lifestyle and have been featured at many of the top food and wine events throughout the world.

Their products are also being used at leading resorts, lodges and venues such as Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island Resort and Danny Meyer’s Shake Shack in New York City.

Experience the revolutionary design of Govino glasses

Originally designed for wine trade shows, Govino is purpose-built to showcase wine beautifully while also being shatterproof, reusable and recyclable.

Its patented thumb-notch not only provides a secure, ergonomic grip, but also allows for easy holding and swirling, as well as a distinctive design element that makes it instantly recognisable.

Govino’s ultra-thin and sleek silhouette far exceeds other unbreakable glassware. The flexible, food-safe, BPA-free polymer that replicates the attributes of crystal, from which the products are made, showcases the colour of the wine and project its aroma much like crystal glasses.

Govino wine glasses are a huge hit!

Govino glasses have received many rave reviews from their clients over the years. Their customers love using them as they can still enjoy the full flavour of wine unlike with plastic cups. They are also popular with the elderly and those, who are a little clumsy.

“These glasses are the ultimate for taking to braais, the beach or picnics. Not only do they look really elegant (you would never say that they’re not glass), but they also make wine taste much better than in other plastic or metal glasses. Worth every cent and a really good gift.” – Renée N. Yuppiechef.

“This is a product I really like. I love red wine but to serve wine in a plastic cup is just such an insult, to both myself and the wine. These glasses are classy, easy to clean, easy to carry for the “oh so familiar braai’s in the dessert” and one’s wine still tastes like wine.” – Hester C. Yuppiechef.

Not only can you properly appreciate the aroma, colour and tastes of wine better from Govino glassware, their products are also lightweight, reusable, and brandable. Their latest range is now dishwasher safe for your convenience. They also come with a handy little box that you can store them in after you’re done.

Superior quality to handle the superior taste of your wines!

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
