When it comes to drinking wine, though the taste of wine is the most important thing that matters, the wine glass also needs to be considered. With the overwhelming variety of styles and shapes to choose from, there’s a wine glass available for every style of wine—a glass specific to Bordeaux, one for Pinot Noir, another for Chardonnay etc.
Besides the proper serving temperatures, each type of wine requires a specific style of glass for service. So there are numerous options to go for wine glasses that perfectly complements the wine. You can choose from champagne flute or sparkling wine glass, universal crystal wine glass, dessert and fortified wine glasses, stemless wine glasses, bordeaux glass for red wine, all-purpose wine glass and so on.
Irrespective of the wine being sweet or dry, white or red, robust or light, it needs very specific serving procedures for reaching its full flavour potential. In order to get the most out of your wine collection, it is crucial to understand the different types of wine glasses and the aspects making them ideal for one type of wine over another.
According to researchers, the shape and style of glass don’t really matter while drinking wine. And whatever the type of the wine glass you prefer, the ones with stems are the best. The reason being a wine glass with a stem is ideal for tasting and serving wine more formally, without the possibility of warming the wine by the touch of hands, also making it much easier to swirl the wine while tasting it, and, importantly, adding more fun while you clink the glass for a cheers!
