Wine Glasses Use and Design

The wine glass has an elegant design and there is a type of glass designed for all types of red, white and rose wines for every special occasion. Wine glasses can be used for drinking, but they can also be given as gifts, think about having Engraved Wine Glasses with a personalised message and give it as a wedding present, special anniversary presents or engagement gifts.

There are wine glasses for both red and white wine, champagne flutes for champagne, tumblers for whisky and vodka, cognac glasses for brandy and shot glasses for sambuca and tequila. So there are not just glasses that are specific to wine but also glasses that are made specifically for each type of beverage available.

Using the right wine glasses enhances the drinking pleasure and allows the wine to be fully appreciated. Generally speaking wine glasses should be clear and plain so that the colour of the wine can be seen; straw, golden, lemony for white wine; red wines are ruby, burgundy. The colour of the wine also gives a lot of information about the wine; the grape variety and age of the wine.

The wine glass should be of sufficient size so that when the wine poured into the glass there is enough room in the glass for the wine to be swirled. This will allow the wine to release its aromas and give the wine plenty of flavours in the mouth. Wine glasses which are tapered at the top where the opening is narrower than the base allows the aromas released from the wine to be concentrated on the nose. Wine glasses designed for red wine tend to have a large bowl and for white wine have a narrower bowl. The smaller surface area of the white wine glass ensures that the wine stays cooler for longer.

Wine glasses are made from a number of materials; glass, lead crystal and metal. All of these materials lend themselves to be decorated in some way. For example as mentioned earlier. You could have engraved wine glasses, engraved champagne flutes, engraved tumblers or engraved shot glasses which can be used for special occasions such as toasting at weddings with champagne flutes, a birthday event or celebration event with an engraved message on a wine glass, product launches with engraved tumblers. Although wine glasses are very functional for drinking wines and enhancing the said flavours, they are also great as gifts for special occasions when given as engraved wine glasses.
