Which Wine Glasses Are Best?

Whether you are hosting a party or just enjoy drinking from top of range glassware, this blog will set you up perfectly. There are so many different shapes and styles when it comes wine glasses that it can be somewhat confusing when you are determining which ones to use, this blog should help settle any queries.

Red Wine


Red wines are known to be more flavoursome and aromatic when they have been exposed to the oxygenated air. You are able to do this using a decanter but the type of glass you use does have an ongoing effect on the mouthfeel and taste. When the oxygen gets in contact with the wind, two things happen, evaporation and oxidation, these two processes can improve the quality of the wine. We recommend a wider bowl shaped glass for a red wine.
