A lot of my friends keep boasting about how many “high grade” types of wines they own, the best wine coolers they used. But that is not enough. A connoisseur of wine is someone who does not only care about wine but also about wine glasses because the right glass can change it all. For some people, drinking is for entertainment. Wines to them are just an alcohol liquid which makes the party louder, the music better and the fun last longer. But for other people, drinking is an art which requires skills, scents, and aptitude.
To enjoy the true taste of a good bottle of wine, we need the right stemware. Shopping for stemware can be a battle because of its variety. Glasses come in all shapes and sizes, and prices and purposes that will make you feel lost. So here we are, giving you some tips that might help to get through the long and wide tunnel of stemware a little easier for beginners.
The common characteristics of a typical stemware are high stem, round bowl and wide rim. These traits are not only, help the drinker to taste the wine but also to smell as well as to observe its color. Whenever you choose a stemware, avoid choosing the ones with patterns for distraction might affect your tasting. Also stay away from those colorful ones for they will prevent you from admiring the wine’s true color.
Crystal – clear glasses look boring but it is that simplicity will highlight the value of a good bottle of wine.
