1. Cup holder

The flat cup holder allows the glass to stand without tipping over, especially when it is full.


2. Cup stem

The appearance of the stem is to prevent the drinker's hands from touching the belly of the cup, so as to avoid fouling the glass or increasing the body temperature of the wine.

3. Size

There are many shapes and sizes of wine glasses, but a rule of thumb is that the wine glasses should be large enough so that there is enough space to avoid spilling of the wine when shaking the wine glasses, and the aroma can also be emitted and gathered in the glass.


4. Cup mouth

A high-quality wine glass will have a cut mouth that is smooth to the touch and will not hinder the flow of wine out of the glass. Wine glasses with rolled or uneven rims should be avoided.

The most common shape is the tulip shape, which is slightly wider at the bottom and tapered near the top. This shape allows people to shake the wine and observe, while the aroma will be concentrated in the narrow opening, directly towards the nose. The glass used to drink full-bodied red wine is usually wide and round at the bottom, the purpose is to allow the wine to have more contact with the air, and provide more space for the rich taste and aroma; while the glass for drinking white wine The bottom is relatively narrow, in order to help keep the wine cool and converge the lighter aroma in a smaller space. Champagne glasses are thin and long to show the rising bubbles and help keep the temperature low.

Although colored wine glasses or those with prominent decorations will be very beautiful, the best wine glasses should be smooth and flat, and the beauty and fineness of the wine in the wine glass can be clearly revealed through the glass wall.
