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.

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.
