Best Wine Glass Brands
When sitting around a table with some dinner guests or friends sharing a good bottle of wine, you may share certain things that you wouldn’t normally share. That’s not just the effect of the alcohol, it comes from the experience of drinking wine together. The reason people feel so at ease as to share their inner thoughts and feelings over wine is because drinking a bottle of vintage or just really enjoyable wine is a personal experience in itself. Every aspect of the experience adds to that effect, including the type and brand of wine glass you choose.
The shape of a wine glass can really bring out certain characteristics of a wine. There are also stemless wine glasses, but whether the glass has a stem below it or not has no impact on the wine. The type of material used has an effect as well. For example, crystal may give your wine a bit of a different reaction than regular glass.
