When I wrote about wine glasses, I noted that there was a new stemware holder that fit inside a standard drink holder, but I hadn’t seen it yet. It’s called a Wine Yoebi and Mike Nargi, the inventor, was kind enough to send me a couple so that I could see them.
What can I say? When I saw the Yoebi I loved it! If you like to drink wine from a traditional wine glass, the Yoebi solves the problem of tipping wine glasses, spilled wine and broken glasses on your boat. It’s also great for martini glasses, brandy snifters and other stemware.
The Yoebi comes in two models (see it on Amazon), shown in the photo:
- Drink holder insert, shown on the left, fits in any standard 3-1/2″ drink holder (if a regular foam can cozie nicely fits in the drink holder, it’s the right size for the Yoebi).
- Table mount, the bottom side of which is shown on the right, is the same on top but has “Command” removable adhesive strips on the bottom for easy semi-permanent mounting on a table or counter. (The top side that holds the wine glass looks the same as the drink holder insert.)
I’ve tried using a number of different wine glasses in the Yoebi, and all fit well. Mike sells a nice acrylic wine glass (he sent me one of those, too) that’s fairly tall so that wine won’t slosh out.
If you get the table mount style, I’d suggest getting some extra Command strips. They’re cheap and can be easily removed without damage to the surface, so you can move the drink holders if you want to.
The Yoebi comes in white, off white and black. Of course, Amazon is my favorite source:
