Ever wondered why most wine critics and Somalias insist on drinking wine from a certain glass? Well, that’s probably because the shape of a glass affects your perception of wine. And having the right glass for the right wine is like getting the key to the treasure chest. The right glass can unlock a wealth of fragrance, texture and flavor that would otherwise be muted by a stigma glass.
Wine glasses come in a variety of shapes and sizes for a variety of wines. There are standard red wine glasses and glasses designed for Pinot Noir, Cabernet Savignon, Sirah and almost every major variety that comes to mind. There are also standard white wine glasses, glasses specified for Chardonnay and flute or tulip glasses for sparkling wine. Collecting all of the different styles of wine glass would be exciting (and expensive); To compromise, however, one needs well-designed all-purpose glasses with a deep enough bowl. Hera is a wine glass that must know about!
