Wine glasses, accessories that fulfill specific functions
Wine is not served in specific glasses by chance or for aesthetic reasons. The truth is that wine glasses fulfill essential functions .
First of all, the shape of the glass allows oxygenation of the wine , something that definitely affects the taste.
Another element that differentiates a wine glass from a conventional glass is the stem or column (the part where the glass is held). Thanks to this element, when we hold the glass with our hands, we do not heat the wine .
Also, experts say that the thinner the glass of the wine glass, the better . And, at a more expert level , you should also know that depending on the type of wine, it is advisable to serve it in one glass or another.
