There’s always a good reason to keep a wine tumbler around—whether you’re sipping chilled wine on a hot summer day or taking some on a day-long adventure. Wine aficionados may initially turn their nose up at the idea of drinking from stainless steel or ceramic, but sometimes you just want your bubbles to stay cold while you’re out in the sun.
Because there are so many options to choose from, we're here to help break down the best wine tumblers available, from super-insulating options made for the outdoors to extra large sizes. We've carefully home-tested the top brands and have selected our favorites. Some of the attributes in which we rated each item include design, durability, the quality of materials, the effectiveness to keep drinks hot or cold, and the overall value.
Backed by in-depth testing, we chose the BrüMate Uncork'd Wine Glass Tumbler as our top pick. It was clearly the best quality for the price, and the layer of copper insulated the beverage for hours. The sleek design looked high-end and it even felt upscale in the hand.
Read on for all of our testing insights and which ones are our favorites.
BrüMate Uncork'd XL Wine Glass Tumbler
Pricier than some models
The Brümate wine tumbler is sleek, affordable, and comes in an assortment of designs and colors. The brand's products feature a layer of copper for insulation, which has earned countless top ratings, along with the lifetime warranty.
Our tester loved the unique design, compact shape, and the product's smooth feel in the hand. During testing, we found the packaging to be concise, containing cleaning directions, and stating all of the features on its exterior. There are even little stickers on the tumbler to explain all of the locks and closures.
Choosing this as our Best Overall, our tester found the quality-to-price ratio to be 10/10. And, in addition to keeping wine chilled, the cup can double as a temperature-controlled vessel for hot beverages (coffee, etc.)
"Brümate's wine tumbler is one of the best, if not THE best, bang-for-your-buck option in the to-go wine tumbler category. 10/10 recommend!" — Vicki Denig, product tester
Capacity: 14 ounces | Dimensions: 3.7″D x 3.7″W x 5″H | Material: Stainless Steel, Walnut
YETI Rambler 10 oz Wine Tumbler
Dish washer safe
Lid available separately
Available in a variety of colors, the YETI Rambler 10-Ounce Wine Tumbler is made from durable, food-grade stainless steel. It’s meant to be used often, whether indoors or outdoors, as this vessel is built to withstand pretty much anything (including the dishwasher).
Out of all the tumblers tested, our tester liked the color and durability of this Yeti tumbler the most. Compared to other tumblers, the Yeti Rambler is a bit heavier in the hand. The brand-name appeal and the quality is what you'd expect for the price, albeit, on the more expensive side. We recommend this favorite tumbler for a picnic or outdoor function where lids may not be necessary, as this tumbler doesn’t come with a lid, so be sure to purchase that separately if needed.

"I personally own one and I like drinking my coffee from it in the mornings, then enjoying a glass of rosé outside on a warm evening." — Céline Bossart, journalist specializing in wine and spirits
Capacity: 10 ounces | Dimensions: 4 1/2”H × 3 1/2”W | Material: Stainless Steel
Maars Bev Stainless Steel Stemless Wine Glass Tumbler with Lid
Easy to hold
Easy to clean
Lid has sipping hole that doesn't close
This best-selling insulated wine tumbler offers great value. Lightweight, dishwasher safe, and portable, these tumblers come with straw-friendly lids and are available in a variety of colors. Thanks to the double-walled and vacuum-sealed construction with copper lining, your wines and other chilled drinks will stay cold for up to nine hours while hot drinks will keep for up to three hours. To put things in perspective, these are the same features you’ll get with some of the pricier name brands.
During testing, we found the tumbler to be relatively easy to hold, it felt quite durable, and was easy to clean. Our tester appreciated the quality and functionality of the tumbler for the price. She also really liked that it comes in numerous colors and is suitable for hot and cold beverages. While testing, she wished the rim was thinner, as sipping out of the tumbler felt rather clunky. There was also a sipping hole on the lid that didn't have a closure and prevented the tumbler from being totally on-the-go friendly.
"The price of this tumbler is great for the quality. A tumbler (under) $10 that's functional? Sign me up!" Vicki Denig, product tester
Capacity: 12 ounces | Dimensions: 3.75″D x 3.75″W x 5″H | Material: Stainless Steel
S'well Stainless Steel Wine Tumbler
Stylish, unique design
Lid sold separately
S'well's 9-ounce wine tumbler keeps drinks hot or cold for hours, thanks to its vacuum-insulated, triple-layered stainless steel construction. Unlike many stainless steel wine tumblers, this one has a wide mouth for adding in a few ice cubes to your drink. (The brand also offers a pop-on stainless steel lid, but that is sold separately.) For a full set, there is a 25-ounce bottle available, which accommodates a full bottle of wine and keeps it cold for up to 24 hours.
During testing, we found this tumbler to be beautiful in person. We appreciated the wine's triple-layer insulation and eco-friendly packaging, as well as its non-sweating feature. Our tester also found it to be a plus that it's dishwasher friendly, for easy clean-up. Testing proved this tumbler to be effective, attractive, and sturdy. We were still wanting a lid and were disappointed to find out it was sold separately, making this model a little pricier than the average.
Our tester would recommend this as a great picnic or outdoor option to someone looking for something with a beautiful and unique design, perfect for keeping drinks chilled outdoors, though its lack of lid might not work for someone looking for a travel-friendly option.

"I really loved the beautiful design of this tumbler. The pattern is chic, feels sleek in the hand, and the size is perfect. 9oz. is the ideal size for comfort, especially for those with smaller hands." — Vicki Denig, product tester
Capacity: 9 ounces | Dimensions: 3.23″D x 3.23″W x 3.74″H | Material: Stainless Steel
Thermo-steel CeramiSteel Wine Tumbler
Small size is comfortable to hold
Lid sold separately
With the insulation of stainless steel minus the feel of metal on your lips, this 9-ounce, dishwasher-safe wine tumbler features a ceramic-coated interior, lip and rim. The space between the steel and ceramic-coated layers is vacuum-sealed for ultimate temperature preservation; both stainless steel and ceramic are non-reactive, so there won't be any unwanted flavors imparted by the tumbler's interior.
Our tester found the tumbler's slightly smaller size (9 oz. versus 12 oz. or 14 oz.) made it more comfortable to hold. She also liked the ceramic interior more than the usual steel used in some models. However, because the lid is not included with the tumbler and must be purchased separately, she found temperature control and transportation to be more challenging.
"I'd recommend (this wine tumbler) to a family member who is nervous about using glass or is looking to drink their wine chilled at home without putting ice cubes in it (the forbidden sin!)" — Vicki Denig, product tester
Capacity: 9 ounces | Dimensions: 3.1″D x 3.1″W x 4.5″H | Material: Stainless Steel, Ceramic
Corkcicle Stemless Double-Walled Glass, Set of 2
These Corkcicle Double-Walled Glass Tumblers are perfect for outdoor use. Made from super lightweight glass, the insulated tumblers maintain temperatures (hot and cold) well and have flat, easy-grip sides.
Our tester found the prism-colored version of this tumbler created a rainbow-like, iridescent effect that, while pretty, skewed what she was looking at in the glass. Most tumblers are colored or opaque, so that isn't that unusual. During testing, we did find the rim to be ultra thick and a bit clunky in the hand. But we liked how lightweight there were and suspect these super durable tumblers are unlikely to break very easily. Though the glasses are dishwasher safe, it’s recommended that you hand wash most Corkcicle products.

Big Betty Stemless Wine Tumbler
Big enough for ample ice
Hand wash only
Sometimes you just need a tall pour—that’s where this 16-ounce wine tumbler comes in. Complete with a BPA-free anti-spill lid, this double-walled tumbler is perfect for both hot and cold drinks, keeping the former warm for up to four hours and the latter cold for up to eight hours. Its ergonomic design ensures a secure grip, and the lip is slightly thinner than most other wine tumblers.
Our tester found this tumbler's large size and glittery exterior striking. The extra large 16-ounce size allows for a drink that contains a good amount of ice—perfect for a summer spritz—or you can use this to carry multiple drinks. During testing, we discovered that the rubber rim on the lid was slightly flimsy and made the lid difficult to snap back on. But, once on, the anti-spill lid came in handy.
Be sure to hand wash this tumbler and let it air dry to prevent any damage.
