Tips For Storing Your Wine Glasses Properly

Your wine glasses are so very important for drinking wine. They are probably a bit costly too. They serve a special purpose when it comes to ensuring that you get the best out of your wine-drinking. That’s why it’s so crucial that you take care of the wine glasses you have. • You should never store your wine glasses with their stems facing up. Yes, it may stop your glasses from gathering dust, but that makes it much more likely for your glasses to get cracked or chipped. Try your best to store them with the stem down to prevent these problems. • You should try to get wine racks or cabinets to store your wine glasses in, instead of in boxes. They will stay much more protected in racks or cabinets. Also, there is the chance of high quality crystal glasses absorbing the musty odors from the boxes or the clustered cabinets you may have them in. That can actually contaminate your wine. Wine racks can keep your glasses safe and stop them from knocking against each other, as well as provide your glass with a convenient place to dry after washing and a nice place for display. • You should try to rotate the glasses you use, so that you don’t end up constantly using the same ones all the time. After you’ve washed the glasses that you’ve used, put them at the back of the line and bring the ones which weren’t recently used, to the front.
