Know Your Wine Glasses For Your Upcoming Long Island Wine Tours

May 8, 2012

If you’re planning on taking one or several long island wine tours this spring and you’re not exactly a wine expert yet, it may help you to know the different types of glasses wine can come in, and their specific functions. Impress your family, friends, and fellow tour members with your extensive wine glass knowledge!

Wine Glass Material
The best wine glasses are made from either crystal or very thin and preferably blown glass, and must be clear enough to appreciate the color of the wine. The reason behind this is that anything too thick is thought to distort the fine taste; a delicate glass for a delicate flavor. Also thick glass creates a rather thick lip on the rim of the glass, making it harder to properly sip the wine.

Red Wine
The red wine glass has several distinctive features: A very round shape and wide opening to allow the wine to be properly aired out, as well as leaving room for the taster’s nose to fully appreciate the bouquet.

White Wine
The white wine glass is more “U” shaped, as well as taller and more upright. This allows the aromas to be released while maintaining the wine’s cooler temperature. White wine glasses should usually always come with a stem, since you don’t want your hand to come
in contact with the bowl; your body temperature will heat it up.

Sparkling Wine
Sparkling wine glasses are often called “flutes” because of their elongated and upright shape. This allows the carbonation to be retained and the flavor to be captured for the taster’s enjoyment. These glasses are used for champagne as well.

Dessert Wine
To serve dessert wine, the glass is usually smaller in order to allow the wine to flow to the back of the mouth to avoid being overwhelmed with the sweetness. Dessert wines also typically have much higher alcohol content, so serving in a smaller glass is usually a good idea.
