Pairings: Wine Glass + Wine

 

It’s an age old conversation, how much does the glass you drink from really affect your wine? You will find a handful of websites that touch on the topic, but today we are here to bring you a simplified version of what really matters in a glass to compliment your favorite wine.

Red Wine

The most important thing to remember when picking out the perfect glass for your favorite red wine, is to choose a glass that has a large bowl, allowing the wine to breathe properly.

White Wine

The length of the stem is of utmost importance when choosing a glass for white wine. A tall stem keeps the temperature of the wine chilled and unaffected by the warmth of your hand.

All these glasses and more can be found through Riedel.
