We are in our travels in the Enjoyment regions of the world repeatedly confronted with the topic of wine and learn something new every time. So we often had to change or expand our ideas. Did you know that it plays a big role in which glass of wine is served? The right glass of wine is as important as the right food served. From my parents I had learned that red wine is served in a bulbous glass while white wine is served in a glass that opens up like a tulip. But did you know that the shape of the glass can affect the taste of the wine?
The right glass of wine determines the taste
We got this one last year Wine tasting, to which we from the winery Inniskillin from the wine region Niagara were invited to test themselves. The new ice wine from the house of Inniskillin, the wonderful ice wine Vidal from the Inniskillin Niagara Estate, was presented to us twice for tasting - once in a traditional white wine glass, once in a glass from the crystal factory Riedel, this on behalf of Inniskillin especially for the tasting of Produces ice wines. The same wine, drunk from the ice wine glass, tasted much more intense, full-bodied, and more sustainable than a normal white wine glass. We do not pride ourselves on being perfect wine connoisseurs. We always like to drink a glass of wine for a good meal or after a long day of work in the evening. But we value that the wine tastes good. What we would never have dreamed of is how different the same wine can taste from different glasses.
Of course you have to choose a suitable wine *to make it a pleasure to experience. Equally important, however, is that you serve it in the right glass. And that's no longer enough for us to have glasses for red and white wine. It also matters that the right wine is served in the right glass.
