When drinking wine it is very important that you are drinking out of the proper glass. With particular types of wine and spirits it is essential to have the right glass. White wines have become very popular and one in particular, Riesling. Riesling wine is made from a wide variety of grapes, balancing its high acidity with residual sugar. Riesling wine gives off an aroma of peaches due to the fresh acidity and high mineral components. As the wine ages, the color will change slightly giving the wine a Riesling characteristic.
When drinking Riesling wine, a Tulip shaped glass is preferred. The Tulip shaped glass has a tall, elongated and narrower shape at the rim of the glass. Tulip shaped glasses have a smaller surface area, meaning there is less air circulating around in the glass, warming the wine.
The next time you decide to host a dinner party and serve wine, be sure to use the right kind of stemware for that particular wine. For more information please visit Vintage Makers or call us at (888) 710-2053.
