Glassware at wineries?

    For the last several years my gf and I have been visiting breweries, close to 100

    so far, and at each one we buy a glass with the breweries logo and have them all displayed. We are thinking about taking a trip to Napa to visit some wineries and I’m wondering if wineries sell logo glasses like breweries?

    did a few wineries in South Africa and they all had the glass etched with logo. usually free with the price of the tasting. presume it would be similar in US.

    Visited in California. They had branded glasses you could buy.

    I don't really see the point of branded wine glasses. Beer glasses tend to be different shapes and sizes. Obviously a lot of it is marketing but there are some beer styles that suit certain glassware. For wines it's a lot more simple though with much less variation needed, and if you start collecting glasses you end up with a cupboard of very similar ones. Each to their own though.

    Every winery will have their own branded merchandise and a gift shop. Of course they do, why wouldn't they? Visiting Napa or Sonoma valley is a huge tourist business with buses carting people in. You can rent a bike, which is great fun, but you'll ride on fast traffic roads and the bike lanes aren't that very wide so you can't afford too much swerving!
