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.

Storing & Preserving Wine
A true wine enthusiast knows that proper preservation technique is tantamount to enjoying a fuller, more fulfilling wine taste. A wine patron will often take greater steps to preserve a more expensive bottle. However, taking the right precautions can make a $10 bottle of wine taste like $30. Adhering to a few tricks can make for better flavor and aroma of your wine.
  • Temperature maintenance is the first step in allowing your bottle to mature to its full potential. Most homes maintain a temperature of 70 degrees with a humidity of roughly 20-30%. Optimal wine storage temperatures call for 55-58 degrees with about 55-75% humidity. To replicate these ideal conditions, a proper cellar or wine refrigerator is recommended.
  • Keep your wine out of sunlight. UV rays are harmful to wine and give it an unpleasant cardboard taste and smell.
  • Keep your wine away from cupboards, cabinets and home refrigerators. The opening and shutting of cabinets and doors cause vibrations that disturb your wine and affect the taste.
  • Store bottles on their sides to keep their corks moist. (When a cork dries, it allows air in that will spoil your wine.) When using a rack, keep your white wine lower on the rack, as heat rises and red wine fairs better in higher temperatures.
  • For storing your wine in the short term, duplicate the conditions of longer-term preservation as best you can.

  • When washing by hand, avoid using scouring pads and/or abrasive detergents. To prevent spotting, combine a quarter cup ammonia with a mild lemon detergent. Clean bowls, vases and decanters by filling them half-full with moderately hot water, a small amount of mild detergent, two tablespoons of white vinegar or ammonia and 1/2 cup uncooked rice. Swirl the rice around for a few minutes to remove residue. Do not use an automatic dishwasher as this could cause your crystal to lose its brilliance. Rinse well with warm water and air dry.
