The secrets of wine glasses

Posted by Arnold on 5/6/2013
 
Our readers seem to be interested in making the drinks served in their homes memorable.

We would like to contribute not only the wide variety of unique colored crystal glasses, but also some tips on how - and in what - to serve your drinks. In our mini-series, wine comes first. Enjoy the tips and the drinks!

What kind of wine glasses should you use?

Wine glasses must be made of glass or crystal. Wine glasses must also have a stem to hold the glass without warming the wine with the heat of your hands.

Red wine glasses are wider, with a very large bowl, since red wine needs to be swirled around to come in contact with the oxygen, and benefit from a larger area of contact with the air.
White wine glasses are tulip shaped. They are smaller than red wine glasses. The reduced surface area of contact with the wine prevents the white wine to warm up too fast.

Each country has its preferred bowl-, stem-, and foot-types that become fashionable from time to time. Quality and elegance, however, will never go out of fashion.

Did you know?

Wine glasses of high quality are always handmade of crystal, which is porous and lets the wine aerate. Wine glasses should not be filled by more than 50%. The bouquet of the wine can only develop in a glass which offers enough airspace above the liquid.

At what temperature should wine be served?
  • Sparkling Wine: 48˚F (9˚C)
  • White Wine: 53˚F (12˚C)
  • Rose Wine: 51˚F (11˚C)
  • Red Wine: 62˚F (17˚C)
