Choosing The Right Wine Glass Shape

Selecting the right shape wine glass for the type of wine you want to serve is important to some wine drinkers. The shape of the glass enhances the taste of a specific wine not only in your mouth but with the aroma you perceive through your nose. This is a basic guide - purists will recommend further different wine glass shapes for tasting different varieties wines, such as Bordeaux or Burgundy.

  • Serving your wines in crystal glasses not only is the best for temperature control and enhancing flavour, the colour of the wine is at its finest when viewed through crystal.
  • Red wines are best served in a large glass with a fuller, more rounded bowl and wide rim. As with wine decanters, exposing the wine to as much air as possible, allows it to 'breathe'.
  • White wines are best served in glasses with a less rounded bowl than for red wine. They have more of a U-shaped, elongated bowl and are more upright. This enhances the aroma but allows it to remain chilled.
  • Rose wines can be served in white wine glasses. Wine purists would use a tapered bowl with a slightly flared rim for rose wines.
  • Champagne or sparkling wine is best served in narrow flutes which help retain the 'bubbly' effect.
  • Fortified wines, such as port, sherry and other dessert wines are best served in small glasses. As these wines are blended a distilled wine, such as brandy, and have a higher alcohol content than regular wine, only a small serving is usually required.
