Function of the different glasses
The properties of the wine glasses are often underestimated or the different shapes are only seen as decoration, but each wine glass has its function.
If you own one of the following glasses but don't have the matching wine, you can buy it on our homepage here find.
The Cabernet wine glass
The Cabernet wine glass was specially designed to allow the wine to smell more intensely. Never fill your glass with wine over the widest part of the glass.
The burgundy wine glass
Here we have a wider glass so that it can hold the fine aromas of the wine.
In addition, the glass has a shorter stem so that it cannot tip over so easily.
The Bordeaux wine glass
The perfect glass for full-bodied wines - you can also use it as an all-rounder for other wines.
The glass is tall - the wine travels slightly to the back of the mouth instead of staying on the tip of the tongue.
It lets you taste all the aromas without the wine containing bitter nuances.
The Zinfandel Wine Glass
The Zinfandel wine glass is shorter than a Bordeaux wine glass and fitted with a slightly larger rim so you can experience the full taste and smell of the wine.
The bowl itself is small, but still large enough for your wine to breathe.
The glass enhances the overall taste of the wine and your overall drinking experience.
The Pinot Noir wine glass
The Pinot Noir glass has the widest bowl of any wine glass. The wine has a lot of contact with air - this improves the aroma and taste of the wine. The glass is large enough to swirl the wine, and the crystal clear glass allows you to watch the wine as you do this.
Types of wine for this glass: Pinot Noir
The rosé wine glass
Rosé glasses have a long stem that ensures the warmth of your hand doesn't affect the wine.
Types of wine for this glass: Rosé
