Does it matter what type of glass you drink wine from?

Does it matter what kind of glass you drink wine out of?

In fact, the choices are so numerous that you’re probably wondering whether you need a wine glass for every type of wine you drink. The short and simple answer is no.

What makes a good wine glass?

When choosing your wine glass, it’s best to first and foremost take bowl shape into consideration, matching the bowl to the type of wine. Then give consideration to stemmed or stemless and to the thickness of the rim.

Can I drink wine out of a regular glass?

You can drink wine out of a glass with no stem, whether it’s the currently popular stemless wine glass or a juice glass. What’s most important is having an opening diameter on the glass that’s large enough for you to be able to breathe in the wine’s aromas.

What can I use if I don’t have a wine glass?

I’ve been to plenty of places that use ‘stemless wine glasses’ (about the size of a red wine glass, maybe a little larger, but no stem underneath) for reds. I’ve also been to places that just use mason jars. For whites, if you’re at a dinner table, it’s not going to matter as much, as you can put your glass down.
