Ever wondered why most of the wine critics and sommeliers insist on drinking wine from a particular glass? Well, its probably because the shape of a glass does impact your perception of the wine. And having the right glass for the right wine is a bit like having the key to a treasure chest. The right glass can unlock a wealth of aromas, textures, and flavours that otherwise could be muted by a clunky glass.
Wine glasses come in all different shapes and sizes for many varieties of wine. There are standard red wine glasses, and there are also glasses designed for Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and just about every major variety that comes to mind. There are also standard white wine glasses, specific glasses for Chardonnay, and flutes or tulip glasses for sparkling wine. It would be exciting (and pricey) to collect all of the different styles of wine glasses; however, to accommodate, one would need well-designed all-purpose glasses with deep enough bowls. Hera are some of the wine glasses that one must know about!
