Why is vinajn accepted and not vinojn?

vinajn would say that the glasses are for wine: "Cxu la kafejo havas vinajn glasojn"

Vinojn would say that the cafe has wines, and I am not sure how you would be able to ask about the cafe's ability to put that wine in glasses with a sentence that includes that word... but in any case, it greatly changes the meaning in my opinion.

Another option would be to make 'wine glasses' one word: "Vinglasojn"
