    Share This Post

    Since the time of the ancient Egyptians, wine have been a luxury product that most people covet. Those that run in cavier-eating, elite circles know and understand the need for par excellence when it comes to wine connoisseurship. Wine glasses are no exception too.

    Prepare your taste buds and get comfortable with a bottle of wine, as we navigate the delicate stemware aisle!. But first, let’s take a look at the type of grapes used in making the best luxury wines.

    Cabernet Sauvignon vs Pinot Noir vs Chardonnay Wines

    Cabernet Sauvignon is widely accepted as one of the excellent red grape variety known for its thick, durable skin. It comes from the species Vitis Vinifera and makes a high quality dry wine. They’re equally in high demand for premium wine production. The grape vines are tough and adaptable.

    Pinot Noir is another very popular red grape variety that also comes from the species Vitis Vinifera. It tends to be of light to medium body with an aroma reminiscent of black cherry, raspberry, or currant. It comes from the French words for “pine” and “black”. The “pine” refers to the tightly clustered, cone-shape fruit bunches, whereas the “black” refers to the colour. The grape vines are also delicate and difficult to grow.

    Chardonnay is the world’s most popular green-skinned grape variety used in the production of white wine. Chardonnay varies in flavour based on the climate in which it grows. It can taste like apples, melon and other tropical fruits like pineapple and mango.

    What Makes A Quality Wine Glass?

    Wine shows best in smartly shaped stemmed glasses, in which the bowl is large enough that a pour filling a quarter of the glass is generous. The bowl should be transparent, without etching or decoration, widest near the base and tapering inward to the rim to channel aromas upward.

    White wines are typically served in smaller bowled glasses. This is because smaller glasses preserve aromas, maintain cooler temperature, express more acidity in wine etc. While red wines tend to taste smoother from a glass with a wide opening. This is because it delivers more aromas and the larger surface area lets the ethanol escape

    We’ve created a list of some of the conventional wine glasses brands to follow in no particular order.
