Can your wine glass impact your enjoyment of wine? Yes! Please check out this Experimenting with Wine Glasses video in which David and I taste the same Merlot out of four glasses.
I invite you to do what we did in the video. Pour a single wine into several different glasses and see if you experience the wine differently from glass to glass. How does the wine smell? How does it taste? What is the finish like? Is the taste round and layered? Do you experience any bitterness?
This is a really fun exercise to do at least several times. With some wines, you might not notice much difference from one glass to the next. With other wines, you might notice a huge difference.
If you decide you would like to invest in a nice set of stems, I would love for you to try the ones made by WineShop At Home. One of my favorite feature of our stemware is that they are dishwasher safe! Woo hoo!!! To see our entire lineup of stems and decanters, please visit the stemware page on my WineShop At Home website.
Please call me at 650-714-7009 if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a special wine tasting where the focus is experimenting with wine glasses. I would love to lead that kind of tasting for you.
