Choose the Perfect Type of Wine Glass for your Wine

Ever wonder why wine glasses come in so many, gosh darn shapes and sizes!?
Well, the main reason is that a glass's shape can greatly enhance the flavor of different types of wine… and, since there are a bajillion types of wine, there are a bazillion types of glasses! ⁠

And, instead of slowly losing your mind trying to figure out which of the hundreds of different wine glasses you need to buy for your in-home wine glass collection... let me help you. I've highlighted four of the main wine glasses and how to match them with the most popular red and white wine varietals on the market. ⁠⠀

 

1. The "Big Bold Red" glass = Full-Bodied Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot

- Helps level out a wine with higher tannins⠀
- Tends to make wine taste rounder⁠⠀
- Impressive AF to look at⁠ 💁‍♀️

     

    2. The "Aroma Collector" Glass = Pinot Noir & Full-Bodied/Oaked Chardonnay

     

    - The larger bowl helps to bring out / communicate aromas in wine⁠⠀
    - Impressive AF to look at and lots of room for you to stick your nose 👃 in and smell⁠⠀
    - Not good for light white wines - they will oxidize faster and become flat⁠⠀

       

      3. The "Universal" Glass = Alllllll the wines

      - Good all-around glass to use for red, rosé and white wine⁠
      - Great for spicy wines (in fact, they can make them taste spicier🌶) and food wines⁠⠀

         

         

        4. The "Basic Whites" Glass = Pinot Grigio & Sauvignon Blanc

        - Highlights floral and citrus aromas⁠⠀

        - Helps maintain chilled white wine temperature⁠
