Regal Wine Company Will Represent govino in All On- and Off-Premise Accounts Statewide

November 29th, 2022, Napa Valley, Calif. – govino, the company that created the category for shatterproof, reusable and sustainable, polymer-based “go anywhere” wine glasses in 2008, has appointed Regal Wine Company as its exclusive California distributor of govino’s new BEST govino EVER line, which debuted earlier this year. Regal Wine Company will represent govino in the on- and off-premise channels.

“Since our initial launch in 2008, both consumers and professionals alike have asked us to produce a more durable, dishwasher safe govino glass capable of long-term reuse. Thanks to a new manufacturing process here in the US, we’ve finally achieved that goal,” said govino founder, Joseph Perrulli. “By partnering with such a highly respected distributor as Regal Wine Company, BEST govino EVER will soon be available in some of the finest retailers, grocers, and resorts in California.”

BEST govino EVER features a smooth, polished rim, a more durable glass-like feel, and govino’s award-winning, patented thumb-notch design. As the next generation of govino – the only shatterproof glasses engineered expressly for the sensory enjoyment of wine – BEST govino EVER withstands high temperatures in both domestic and commercial dishwashers, making it reusable for years to come. The BEST govino EVER line is made in the USA, as are all govino products.

“Regal Wine Company is ecstatic to join in a partnership with govino here in the state of California. The market’s premium sustainable wine glass company joining forces with California’s premium wine distributor makes all the sense in the world. We are privileged to offer to our broad base of accounts such an amazing product,” said Regal Wine Company General Sales Manager, Matt Conneely.

BEST govino EVER is available in 12-ounce and 16-ounce sizes and packaged in both two-packs (MSRP $12.95) and four-packs (MSRP $24.95), as well as bulk singles of 72 units per case for on-premise. For more information about govino, visit

About govino: Since govino created the market for shatterproof, reusable wine glasses, founder Joseph T. Perrulli believes now more than ever, that reuse is the greatest form of sustainability. Originally developed for the sensory enjoyment of wine in settings where breakable glassware is prohibited or simply impractical, upon its debut in 2008 govino was quickly adopted by some of the world’s most highly respected winemakers and sommeliers, simply because they knew they could rely on govino to showcase their wines properly. Today, the award-winning, patented, govino ‘go anywhere’ wine glass remains the top of the line offering in the category, particularly at events and festivals where govino is offered as a high-functioning, reusable, take-away glass. Along with continuing to offer its original hand-washable Festival line to upscale events and festivals, in 2022 govino will launch two new products: BEST govino EVER, a more durable, dishwasher safe version of its original wine glasses, which look and perform like fine crystal yet can be used indefinitely, furthering govino’s cause to reduce through reuse; and Quartino, an “all-in-one” ready-to-drink packaging system that reenacts a wine-by-the-glass tasting experience usually relegated to fine restaurants and winery tasting rooms, offering a highly accessible, luxury option for single-serve packaging. 

About Regal Wine Company: Founded in 1993, Regal Wine Company is California’s 4th largest alcohol distributor, and the largest distributor that focuses its portfolio exclusively on wine. The mission at Regal Wine Company and its 200+ employees is to be the preeminent wine distributor in the state, a group of focused storytellers that represent wines of authenticity with a sense of place and a focus on family ownership.
