What is a Crystal Wine Glass? A crystal wine glass is a durable glass that holds alcoholic drinks such as wine. These glasses refract light accentuating the color and look of the fluid. This is why clear glass is usually used instead of colored glass. The glass should be polished and free of hard water spots in order to observe the effects of swirling. Swirling shows the "legs" of the wine, and although this is a little controversial, most people think this defined the character of the wine. Choosing fine crystal enhances the experience and reminds the tasters that wine has a long history and should be sipped and appreciated rather than drunk just for the alcohol effect.
The visual appeal of the wine glasses contributes to the sophisticated and fancy way of drinking in your bar or restaurant. Other than visual appeal, wine glasses serve as essential tools to ensure the quality, taste and overall value of the wine. To achieve the ideal taste for white wine, a narrow bowl is suitable because whites are lighter and requires just a lower rate of oxidation. To prevent a high level of oxidation and retain the fresh and crisp flavor, you should choose a narrow bowl. Whether it's a Sauv Blanc, Merlot, Hardys, Cabernet, Chardonnay or any other type or brand, the right glass makes a huge difference. This simple way can make the whole experience richer and more enjoyable.
