World’s Largest Wine Glass

The world’s largest wine glass has been unveiled in Lebanon, blowing Portugal’s previous 1998 record out of the water. Dozens of visitors at a wine festival in Beirut’s Hippodrome looked on as the giant receptacle, measuring 94.48 inches in height and 65 inches in diameter, was revealed. An adjudicator from the Guinness Book of World Records then confirmed that the plexiglass vessel, created by engineers Walid Richa and Moussa Zakharia, is indeed the world’s biggest. ‘The previous record was set in Portugal 12 years ago and I’m proud to announce that Lebanon has achieved a new record,’ remarked Liz Smith. Organisers of the wine festival proceeded to pour around 100 bottles of Lebanese wine into the giant glass, mixing up a tasty cocktail of red, white and rosé varieties.” w/ photos
