The wineglass, a whole world to be discovered…

To start off on the right foot, a good wineglass is one that allows you to fully enjoy the full identity of the wine, and each person demands different things and, first and foremost, a good wineglass is one that enables you, above all, ... ENJOYMENT… in moderation, of course.

If we want to increase the level of sophistication, any good wineglass should allow us to progress through the entire tasting phase: first, a translucent and clean wineglass that enables us to appreciate the layer of wine, its brightness and colour. In the case of sparkling wines, the persistence of the bubbles; for vintage wines, the tears they leave inside the glass; for sherry and oloroso wines, the texture and density of the wine...

Second, the structure and shape of the glass that allows the primary and secondary aromas to be appreciated on the nose, with a stem that is easy to handle so that the glass can be held without affecting the temperature of the wine.

Third, the thickness of the glass. We should search for a glass that is soft and pleasant to the touch when we bring it close to our lips, a glass that helps us to sip slowly, while tasting and enjoying...

Below we have listed some that are very well adapted to the varieties of each wine:

We’ll start with the classic Bourdeaux wineglass, with a long neck, that enables the concentration of aromas and the glass to be shaken well. The Burgundy wineglass is a larger glass with an ample bowl and wide neck that enables better oxygenation of the wine, allowing it to breathe more. The Cabernet Sauvignon wineglass, with a longer, smaller bowl and a more closed neck, is used for light wines. The Flute Glass is typically used for sparkling wines. These are narrow glasses that enable greater visibility of the bubbles. And finally, the Sherry glass, small, with an elongated and shorter bowl, just like the stem…As you can see, there’s an entire world behind each sip and each type of wine. Cheers!
