Are you using the right wine glass?

Think of the right glassware as the perfect partner to a great wine. Sure, you can drink wine in anything that holds liquid and you don’t need expensive crystal. But, the right glass helps.

Amazingly, it seems there is a different glass to every wine.

Red wines do best in tall glasses with a wide bowl to encourage oxidation. White wines are best served in narrow glasses that enhance aromas. A rose is sampled from a tapered glass that allows the wine to flow directly into your mouth to enhance the fruity aromas.

A stemless glass, often wide, is often frowned upon because the warmth of your hands effects the wine. But, some say warmth allows flavors to increase.
