17 different types of wine glasses

Quality crystal wine glasses are ideal. Good, all purpose stemware should have these four important characteristics:

  • A clear bowl, so that you can observe the wines color and condition
  • A long stem, so that the warmth of your fingers does not heat the wine.
  • A thin rim, to make sipping easy and dribble free.
  • A wide capacity, so that you have the room to safely swirl the wine.
