If you are a wine lover, then you will need wine glassware to enjoy your drinks with. If you have a basic knowledge about wine glassware, however, then you can easily find the perfect glasses to suit your drinking experience and your budget. Many people buy wine for the first time and when they get home with their wine, they often notice that it looks different from the wine they had at the bar. This is because the glasses come in various types. One of these types is called ‘unique wine glasses’.
Unique wine glassware is those that are taller than the wine glass. A lot of people are amazed by this and ask ‘how on earth do they make them so tall?’ A wine glass can be designed to take on the shape of the person drinking from it, for example, to take the shape of a ‘chinned’ wine glass would take on the shape of a ‘chintz.’ There are several advantages to this style of stemware, the most important one being that it makes the drinker feel like they are sipping wine in style, with their wine glass.
Another advantage to unique wine glassware is that it helps to create an atmosphere that is very classy and refined. Everyone loves wine and drinking from stemware that makes the drinker look like they are higher class is a big draw. Unique glassware also helps to make the wine look much better than if it were to be served from regular stemware. The reason for this is that stemware such as wine glasses are made to be used whilst moving your head from the side to appreciate the taste of the wine. In other words, you should use a wine glass to enjoy the wine, not hold it still.
Most people are used to having wine glasses that either come with an air-cooled mouthguard or come with stemless glasses. These stemless glasses allow you to easily drink your wines without holding them over your nose. However, many wine enthusiasts also enjoy varietals and whites, and so these are served using stemless glasses. The reason for this is that if you are drinking a varietal that is quite a light wine, then you do not want to hold it too still and allow the wine to evaporate.
Aroma and Taste
If you are a regular wine drinker then you will have developed a preference for a certain brand of wine and so you want to drink it from a glass that gives you the greatest aroma and taste. One of the best types of wine glassware to buy would be a long stem or sherry glass. Long stem glasses are usually made from vitreous china, which is a clear type of material that looks just like crystal. They are usually round in shape and therefore create an atmosphere similar to that of a wine glass. The main benefit of owning long stem glasses is that they allow you to drink from their wide mouth, which enables you to savour the wine’s aroma all the more.
Next, if you drink white wine, then one of the glasses that you might want to consider investing in is a pinot noir glass. Pinot noir glasses are usually rounder and smaller than other types of wine glasses. They are also known as flaming lips, because sometimes when the wine is gently warmed up, a white film can form on its surface. Many people choose to purchase pinot noir glasses because these glasses have rims, which allows them to open up the wine’s aroma further.
Another type of wine glassware that you may want to consider investing in would be a set of Bordeaux or burgundy glasses. Burgundy glasses are often used for dessert wine and indeed the name Bordeaux derives from the French word for dessert. This style of glass is ideally suited to drinking very dry reds and whites, as well as whites from regions with higher gravity. A glass with a high content of acidity is also known as being Bordeaux.
When choosing wine, it is important to look for glasses that are rimless because this allows the wine’s aromas to come to the forefront. The ideal wine glass should not be too small or too large and should have an airtight seal. These particular qualities help to trap the wine’s aromas and flavours. You should also look for a wine glass with fine or medium carbonation, as carbonation helps to open the flavours and drinks to the full.
