These Are The Parts Of A Wine Glass

As an avid wine-drinker, you may be aware of all the “tools and tasks” associated with the drink. A wine glass if definitely one of the tools used in wine-drinking. This article is going to teach you a little bit about the different parts of the wine glass, just in case you didn’t know (even though you probably do). • Rim: This is the tip part of the wine glass that your lips touch when you drink. The thinner the wine glass rim, the better the drinking experience. It is likely that the more expensive the glass, the smoother the feel of the rim. The cheaper the wine glass, the more likely for the rim to be bumpy or rolled. • Bowl: This is the area between the rim and the stem of the wine glass. It is usually different in shape on the various makes of wine glasses. In most glasses however, the bowls are usually a bit tapered upward, with a wider bottom and a narrower top. The shape serves to capture the wine’s scent and distribute it towards your nose and mouth. It also lets your wine breathe. • Stem: This is the area below the bowl. It is the area that lets you hold your glass without warming up the wine with the temperature of your hand. It also lets you hold your wine without leaving fingerprints or smudges on your bowl. • Foot: This is the bottom-most part of the wine glass. It lets your glass stand erect. • Color: This is the appearance of your glass. In terms of crystal clear glasses, they allow you to see the full beauty of the wine itself. Glasses with decorations or colored glasses are quite attractive, but they aren’t the best option for showing your wine off. Try them out and see if they tickle your fancy.
