GRAPE VARIETAL SPECIFIC VS WINE FRIENDLY GLASSWARE
The world of wine can appear complex enough without adding in complicated glassware choices. But don’t sacrifice enjoyment because of terminology – find out the meaning of two key terms for functional glassware.
Grape Varietal Specific glasses feature finely tuned bowls consisting of three variables: shape, size and rim diameter, which are designed to translate the message of wine to the human senses.
These highly purposeful pieces work with wine’s DNA to present the perfect picture, balancing bouquet, texture, taste and flavor. Each shape has been engineered in a practical sensory workshop, testing shape against shape to ensure that the grape variety is presented in the most optimal way.
Wine Friendly glassware is designed to show optimum characteristics in wine, without catering to specific wine varieties. Wine friendly collections offer a streamlined offering of red wine, white wine, and champagne glasses.
These collections include functional, purposeful glasses that are ideal for those who prefer a more simplistic approach to wine enjoyment.
