Did you know the same bottle of wine will taste different depending on what glass it is served in? Imagine you were at a dinner party and were served a wonderful glass of red wine. From the moment you were able to smell the bouquet, you were enraptured - elegant and bold, smooth and crisp. You enjoyed that wine-drinking experience so much so that you went to the store to buy the same wine to recreate the experience at home. You pop open the bottle, pour yourself a glass, and the taste is disappointing! It doesn’t smell or taste nearly the same as at the dinner party. It’s the same bottle of wine, so why does the wine taste so terrible at home? Big Wine Glasses has answers! We have one simple trick that will make any wine taste better.
The Bigger the Glass, The Better the Experience!
While there are some guidelines around which type of glass each type of wine should be served in, there is one thing for sure: the bigger glass, the better the experience! And no, that doesn't necessarily mean that you will drink more wine in one sitting. (One serving of wine equals 5 ounces, or 150ml, no matter the size of the glass.) It means your serving of wine will have ample room to breathe and oxidate and will taste better!
Grapes and Wine Transform When Bottled.
The grapes undergo a deep transformation from the vine to the bottle, collecting and concentrating colors, aromas and flavors. Even after bottling, some wines benefit from further developing, increasing the complexity and layers. Wine research and information is easier to access than ever! People now know that big wine glasses allow wines to open up more fully, releasing all the amazing layers and notes in the taste of a great wine. They want a big wine glass to enhance their enjoyment of wine.
A Big Wine Glass Enhances the Sensory Experience of Drinking Wine!
This is especially true for oak-matured reds and whites. Pouring the wine into a big glass helps it to open and release the full bodied taste that has been accentuated by the barrel. The larger the glass, the more of the surface of the wine that is in contact with the oxygen. That helps the wine further express its personality and aromas while enhancing the taste, making the drinking of that wine a more pleasurable sensory experience.
