Best Wine Glasses
In this article, we'll explore the best wine glasses for your home. Specifically, what are the best wine glasses to serve red and white wine, and which ones you should avoid? Finally, we'll cover flutes (and their role in wine) and the differences between champagne flutes, carboys (or bungs), and growlers. By the time you've finished reading, you'll have a better idea about the glassware that's right for you. Ready, set, drink!Let's start with red wine. If you're serving the wine at room temperature, then a simple shot of club soda is perfect. If you want the bubbly sensation, add a touch of water or white vinegar. The best wine glasses for red include the traditional goblet (longer stemmed glass with a wide opening), an aluminum flute, and the earthenware crock, which are taller and wider than the earthenware crock of old, retaining more of the bouquet. Now, let's examine white wine. First, as with red, if you're going with a clear color wine, the goblet is the best wine glasses. However, if it's a light wine, such as Merlot, then consider using a wide, shallow glassware to achieve the same effect. There are two kinds of goblets: the burgundy glass, made from a clay material that's been fired to make the cup; and the white wine glass, which is glassware made from clear plastic with a very wide mouth.
Now that you know which glasses to use, it's time to talk about stemware. There are two general styles for stemware: the one-stemmed glasses; and the two-stemmed glasses. The two-stemmed glasses are the most common style of glass, and the best wine glasses in this category are usually called universal glasses because they can be used to serve any type of wine, anywhere. On the other hand, one-stemmed stemware is best suited to certain wines and certain foods. Universal glasses come in many different shapes, colors and sizes. They also come in many different finishes, from clear to red, white to rose, etc. The one-stemmed glasses are best suited to reds, while two-stemmed glasses are best suited to whites. If you're serving champagne, or something else that's very light, you should use the flutes, which are tall and slender glasses that look and feel like flutes. You'll need wine experts to help you determine what's best for your own consumption. The best wine glasses for you may not be the best for somebody else, simply because everyone's tastes differ a little bit. Everyone likes a different texture, a different taste, a different color, so it all depends on who's drinking. But no matter who you're serving wine to, there are some rules that you should follow. First of all, the best wine glasses should never be broken. Ever. People drink them out of sympathy, not because they care about the glasses. Also, you should keep your glass on ice when you're not serving any drinks. If you want to serve wine after it has been sitting on ice for a while, then you should clean it before you pour it. Second of all, your glasses should have a good rim. Rimless glasses are great, but only if you're serving red wine or another beverage that doesn't require a protective, rimless glass. If you're serving white wine or sparkling wine, however, then a rim will help prevent the liquid from spilling out onto the table.
