I love drinking wine and have been started to build my collection of wine 3 years ago. There are a lot of different types of wine in my collection such as red, rose and white wines. There are also some bottles of wine which age nicely long time ago which I take so much pride in.
And of course when I love drinking wine and have a big collection in my house, I also want to invite some of my friends coming over to my house to taste wine and enjoy dinner altogether.
If you like me, you will know for sure that besides bottles of wine, you need t have plenty of wine glasses in your house so that there would be one for everybody.
Provided that you need my advice, I will always prefer buying high quality wine glasses to the normal ones. First of all, quality will make the glasses themselves last longer. In addition, good material glasses will make wine taste better. I know it is not scientifically true but I always feel this way.
Now moving to the main part, I will tell you some of my experience as well as what I need to take into consideration when I go out to find the best wine glasses on the market.
Here are the important features of high quality wine glasses:
I am an amateur in glass making so that automatically, the first thing that I always think of when choosing high quality glasses is the price.
- In most of the cases, high quality would also mean high price. I always consider buying high quality wine glasses a big investment so that I expect to pay a high price for that.
- It is a long time investment as I would be able to invite a lot of friends to come over for various events- not one off event. I surely use them a lot of times, which is the reason why I invest a huge fortune in my collection of wine glasses.
- However, your budget of how much you are willing to pay for a set of wine glasses will be different from mine, depending on why your purposes of using these glasses are.
- If you want to buy them for one event only, you can only invest in cheaper prices of wine glasses. They don’t last for a very long time and may break easily but if you do not need them to, go for it.
2. The Construction Of The Glass
- When we mention about the design and the exterior of wine glasses, you and I both know that there are a lot of options for you to choose from with different patterns and colors as well as shapes and styles. Regarding your needs and preferences, you can always choose whatever you want. The choices available to you are endless.
- The next thing I want to talk about is the rim of the glass, which you need to pay attention if you want to buy wine glasses of high quality. That factor would be able to determine the flow of the wine greatly.
- An ideal construction of the rim of the wine glasses should not be thick and large. In addition, I always have trouble of drinking wine from a glass with big rim. I cannot drink from it without dropping one or 2 bits onto my shirt and I don’t want my guests to experience the same problem. Therefore, when I choose the rim of the wine glasses, I pick one whose rim is thin enough.
- Another important of the wine glasses is the stem. In my opinion, a slender long stem does not only offer a beautiful look but also help you to have a firm grip on the glass
- Obviously, there are 3 types of size that you can find in a high quality wine glass, which are too small, too big and just right.
- You should not buy a wine glass which is too small. How will you ever be satisfied if you can only drink a little amount of wine each time? Especially when you have some guests coming over, you will surely want to offer your guests a decent amount of good wine.
- Moreover, you should not go for too big sized wine glasses as well. I once bought a set of big sized wine glasses but they took a lot of space in my cupboard that I don’t have much space for anything else. Not to mention that when you pour a lot of wine into the glasses, no matter how much, it still looks like you don’t pour much at all.
- Therefore, the best size you should go for is the medium size, which is quite of standard somehow. All you need to do is simply ask the salesmen for this range of wine glasses.
These features above are some of the most important ones that you need to take into consideration if you want to pick up wine glasses of the best quality ever on the market. I know that a set of high quality glasses is an important item that in any household’s cupboard which you should consider a big investment. They will last a long time and will be something that you will be so proud of when you invite your relatives and your friends coming for dinner.
