Padre Kino wine is the perfect wine when you need a decent looking glass carafe for water, ice tea or lemonade. They are also great for storing chiltipins or marbles. The wine pours easily down the drain, does not stain your sink and won't hurt the pipes. I believe it is OK in most public and private sewer systems as long as the quantities are not too great. Any residual wine washes easily out of the carafe and a bit of baking soda removes any lingering remnants. I highly recommend it.
