Have you ever wondered which glasses to serve various wines in, or if this will even make a difference? Experts say that the glass makes a big difference to the taste of the wine, so we're shedding some light on which glasses to use to get the best out of your vino!
Red Wines VS White Wines
Red wine is usually served in large glasses, while white wine is traditionally served in a medium-sized wine glass with a U-shaped bowl. The main reasons are:
A larger red-wine glass has a larger surface area, allowing the wine to come into contact with the air and breathe.
A larger glass also means that you can dip your nose into the bowl to appreciate the aromas – after all, our sense of smell and taste are intricately linked.
A regular white-wine glass with a U-shaped bowl can help to maintain the usually cool temperature of white wine longer.
A regular glass can also retain an array of sweet and refreshing aromas associated with white wines.
