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?

Selecting Wine Glasses, stemware and barware

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.

Feel

Stemware should feel balanced in your hand (not top heavy) and stand evenly. The rim should be thin, even and smooth to the touch. A gentle tap produces a bell tone indicating surface strength.

Care

In a dishwasher, be sure you know the type of detergent and temperature recommended. If washing by hand, gently dip the glass into warm, soapy water bowl down. Dry carefully. Heat expands and makes them more fragile. Store upright. With care, they will last for generations.

Size and Shape

Standard setting includes goblets, 6 ounce white/rosé wines, 8 ounce red wines and champagne flutes, although you will serve only 2-3 oz. of white or 3-5 oz. of red per glass. A taller bowl allows you to enjoy the layers of aroma as the wine evaporates, straighter sides for whites, balloon shape for reds. 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.
