How to choose appropriate stemware for your chosen wine

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.

    • True! I’m truly newbie in this field, and I think lots of people come to wine bar without full knowledge about stemware 🙂 However, wine bar is also great opportunity for practical experience.
