Top-quality wines can best showcase their nobility in glasses intended for wine. We at the House of Good Wine know this well, so we have prepared various glasses for wine lovers, in which the wine can express the best it has to offer. They differ in size and shape and are made of clear glass, so that you can admire the colour of exquisite wines through it and form your first impression also by sight.
What do wine glasses tell us?
The right choice of glass will preserve the flavour and aroma of each variety of wine. Therefore, it is important to know which drink works best in which glass. This will also show that you not only appreciate good wine, but are also a connoisseur of the culture of drinking wine.
At the aperitif, guests will be welcomed by spirit glasses, and a look around the table will reveal what you have prepared for them. When they see tall, rounded wine glasses on a stem, with a large cup in which they can swirl the wine, they will already envisage a dark red wine in their minds. However, if their gaze meets a tall glass on a longer stem with a tulip-shaped cup, they will know they will be tasting white wines.
Thin, flute-shaped and stemmed sparkling wine glasses will be used for that festive moment when you toast a birthday or New Year with champagne. However, if you want to surprise your guests (or there is not enough room on the table), offer them universal glasses. How much speculation about the drink this will trigger! If you choose patterned glasses, your guests will know that you will not be serving them wine, but sweet cocktails, juice or water.
For every taste and occasion
Guests will always be pleased to receive a welcome drink. Whether it’s a celebration or just a relaxed conversation at a laden table. At the beginning of a pleasant get-together, offer them a light liqueur of a pleasant taste. Spirit glasses will enhance the sweet combination of hibiscus and orange blossoms in the Aperitivo Rosato of the Milan brand Ramazzotti, which will turn the conversation to sunny Italy and its sweet refreshing flavours. Nobless Bordeaux wine glasses will warm the hearts of lovers of the Vipava Valley red merlot or its cousin terrano from the Karst. Masterclass 48 glasses are perfect for champagne, sparkling wine, rosé and white wine.
Which glass is suitable for cognac?
The cognac glass is short and has a large cup with a wide bottom, which allows you to hold it nicely in the palm of your hand and thus warm the drink.
How high should a wine glass be filled?
If you ever felt cheated when you were offered only a half-filled glass of wine, you can calm down. The glass should indeed only be filled up to its widest part, and not to the top.
Why do wine glasses have stems?
A stemmed glass maintains the temperature of the wine, as it is not warmed by the hand. The longer the stem, the longer the wine stays chilled.
How many different glasses do we need?
You yourself know best how often and how many guests you host. It is definitely wise to have one set of glasses for both red and white wine, a few glasses for sparkling wine, and of course enough universal glasses that you can use for cocktails, spirits, juice or water. A beer glass or two will also come in handy.
Do we really need different glasses for red and white wine?
True wine lovers will know well whether a glass is suitable for the variety of wine they are drinking. But in a multitude of similar glasses, most people will not notice a significant difference. You can also use universal glasses for different types of drinks. For example, Masterclass 50 glass can be used for sparkling wine as well as white and red wine. Tiburon Large glass, on the other hand, is best suited for still and sparkling wine, champagne, spirits, aperitifs and dessert wines. A wide choice, right?
