Does the Glass Matter?

Does the Glass Matter?

The right wine glasses can really boost the wine tasting experience and make your senses gush. That is definitely saying something when you are spending a pretty penny to get a high quality wine.

Professor Claus J. Riedel was the first glass designer to recognize that the bouquet, taste, balance and finish of wines are affected by the shape of the glass from which they are drunk.

Red wine glass: Have a big bowl to allow the flavors to spread out and the wider opening allows you to dip your nose in the glass to get a lot more complex aromas.

White wine glass: Have a narrower bowl, the smaller capacity helps keep the temperature cool longer and let the lighter aromas waft.
