What are Wine Glasses
The red wine glass has a handle at the bottom, the upper body is deeper than the white wine glass, and it is more round and wider. Mainly used to hold red wine and cocktails made with it. The main materials of red wine glasses are crystal and glass. The aroma and taste brought by the crystal glass and the glass will be slightly different. The reason is mainly caused by the different roughness of the surfaces of the two. For the subjective feeling of drinking, the use of elegantly designed wine glasses can enhance the drinking style. The size of the wine glass should be moderate, about ten ounces, and the wine should not be more than half of the wine glass, and there should be enough glass body to shake the wine to release the aroma of the wine. Usually, the mouth of the red wine glass is slightly wider than that of the white wine, but the mouth of the glass should still be slightly retracted to gather the aroma of the wine.
Information about Wine Glasses
The flat cup holder allows the glass to stand without tipping over, especially when full.
The stem of the cup was created so that the drinker’s hand would not be in contact with the belly of the cup, to avoid flowering the glass or allowing the body temperature to raise the temperature of the wine.
The belly is probably the most important component of a wine glass, and it is also the most stylized. The shape and size of the belly affects the concentration and release of aromas, the degree of ventilation and the visual presentation of the wine.
The most common shape is the tulip type, which is slightly wider at the base and tapered near the top. This shape allows the wine to be shaken and observed, while the aromas are concentrated in the narrow opening, directly towards the nose. Glasses used to drink full-bodied red wines are usually wide and rounded at the bottom, in order to allow the wine to have more contact with the air and provide more room for the rich flavors and aromas to spread; while drinking glasses for white wines The bottom is relatively narrow to help keep the wine cool and to concentrate lighter aromas in a smaller space. Champagne-style glasses are thin and long to showcase the rising bubbles and to help keep the temperature low.
