We decided it was time to find the best wine glass cover. We love to take wine with us to the beach, the park, or out on our deck. There is nothing worse than putting your glass up to your mouth and spotting a fly doing the backstroke in your glass.
While some friends of ours seem fine with wildlife bathing in their wine, we prefer a bug free glass. Call us wine snobs if you must.
So how do you keep flies from getting into your wine?
The best way to keep flies and other critters out of your wine is to use a wine glass cover. These simple wine accessories will sit on the opening of your glass while you play bocce or go to flip your burgers.
What should you consider when buying a wine glass cover?
While these are simple devices and relatively inexpensive, you still want to get value for your money. There are a few things we think you should consider before you purchase.
Make sure they are dishwasher safe - You don't want to find them warped or cracked after washing
Do they have a little heft - The wine glass cover should sit on the glass and not blow off. Remember, you will be outside enjoying wine and can't control the elements.
Are the wine glass covers large enough - Does the diameter of the wine glass cover fit over all different types of glasses? It's not useful if it doesn't cover the opening of your glass.
Can you buy them in a range of colors - Get a two for one with a combo wine glass cover and wine charm. The only thing worse than drinking a bug is drinking someone else's wine by mistake.
What Are The Best Brands Of Wine Cover
This is our first choice in wine glass covers. The Drink Tops from Coverware does a great job of protecting your precious beverage.
One of our biggest frustrations is finding fruit flies in our wine. Wine is like a magnet for these little buggers. Do you want to know how to keep fruit flies out of your wine glass? Cover your glass with Drink Tops. The wine can still breath and the fruit flies don't have a chance.
The other benefit of using Drink Tops is they will help you identify your glass. These covers come in a range of bright colors that will help you easily find your glass and avoid the embarrassment of drinking from someone else's glass.
Made from silicon, these are dishwasher safe and they adhere to your glass just enough to keep them from blowing off.

We find BevHats to be a little more attractive than the Drink Tops product. These are great for events where you want to "class it up" a bit. The mesh top is made from stainless steel. It does a nice job of protecting your wine from a range of thirsty bugs and is heavy enough to stay well positioned on your glass.
While the BevHat definitely has a nice look, it doesn't work as a wine glass marker unless you have them engraved. You can add a monogram or logo to the BevHat when you order them.
This wine cover is dishwasher safer. You will need to dry them after washing and consider polishing them occasionally. They come in a pack of two, so you will probably want to order two packs.
