Choosing the Right Glass for Your Wine
Having the right wine glass is not just about being a wine connoisseur snob, it's actually got a lot to do with the wine and its flavours and aroma.
While there are many variations of wine glasses, three are most commonly used. These are: red wine glasses, white wine glasses and champagne flutes.
All wine glasses consist of a stem and a bowl, which may differ in size. Generally, when drinking wine, it is advised that you hold the glass by the stem, so as not to affect or interfere with the temperature of the wine. The stem also allows you to swirl the wine with ease.
Wine connoisseurs believe that the shape of the glass bowl is very important as it concentrates the flavour and aroma of the wine.
Red Wine Glasses
