About the Castle Nore Collection:
Introducing a collection of Waterford Crystal stemware and giftware designed at the Waterford House of Crystal. This collection takes its inspiration from one of the most magnificent castles in all of Ireland: Kilkenny Castle. For over centuries, this castle has stood alongside the River Nore, rising majestically above Kilkenny City. Waterford Crystal designers have translated the grandeur and style of this historic castle through the beautifully wide diamond-cut pattern found on each piece.
Wash your fine crystal and glassware by hand in moderately hot water with a mild lemon detergent and 1/4 cup ammonia (to prevent spotting). Rinse in clean water and air dry on a rack. Cleaning the crystal in an automatic dishwasher may cause the crystal to lose brilliance; we recommend you avoid this. Do not clean your fine crystal and glassware with scouring pads or abrasive cleaners.
Wine Glass Types
Red Wine Glass: A red wine glass displays a fuller, rounder bowl than most glasses. This allows you to dip your nose into the glass to experience the wine's aroma. The bulbous setting of the glass allows the bouquet to aerate and develop while the longer stem provides the ability to swish the glass.
White Wine Glass: These glasses showcase more of a U-shape than red wine glasses. This allows a more concentrated aroma (whites are often not as pungent as reds) while also maintaining cool temperature.
Sparkling Wine Glass: The sparkling wine glass is most commonly known as a flute. This is because of its long, thin shape. This shaping helps the wine retain its carbonation and preserve flavoring.
Dessert Wine Glass: The dessert wine glass is the smallest type. Its short stem and glass are contrasted with a wide bouquet. Dessert wines have the highest concentration of alcohol, making their short stature a necessity. Finally, the wide bouquet allows the wine to aerate and develop properly overtime.
