Selecting the Perfect Wine Glasses

Sparkling full lead crystal wine glasses from France. Fine crystal defines good taste and makes wine taste better. The first wine glass, according to myth, was made by Aphrodite cutting a bubble of sea foam in half as she was emerging from the sea. The art of French glassblowing nearly replicates that clarity and delicacy. Who should know better crystal for serving wine than the French?

Color

Historically, colored wine glasses hid cloudy, dull wines which contained sediment, so by tradition, the hock glass is often a jewel tone. Vintners have learned to "fine" their wines. The sight of a deep ruby Pinot Noir, a golden Chardonnay or bubbles rising in Champagne, can make this an important part of the experience. Held in the light, there should be no blue or yellow tinge to clear crystal.

Size and Shape

The mouth should be slightly narrower to gather aroma, but not touch the nose when drinking. Modern table patterns often simplify to the basic shapes shown.
