Food and drink are things that inevitably accompany our daily routine. Whether it’s a dinner for two or a loud Christmas celebration, or just a modest working evening by the laptop, we always have a glass of water or a glass of wine near us. That is why we believe that there is nothing more important to surround yourself with an aesthetically pleasing but reliable companion of all drinks – a properly selected assortment luxury bar glassware for your home or professional use.
It is no secret to anyone that the presence of such a variety of shapes of glasses is not a whim of wine connoisseurs. The taste of the drink, the preservation of the correct temperature and the ability of the drink to breathe – all this forms all new forms of glasses, and the sommelier continues to experiment with the manufacture of different forms and types of luxury glassware.
The unfortunate shape of the glass does not allow us to enjoy and appreciate the most important thing in the drink – its aroma and notes of taste. That is why it is so important to know the difference between glasses that are necessary for different drinks and to use them correctly while selecting bar glassware for your home.
Decisive factors in creating a design:
- Base. You need quality and stable product.
- Foot. The most important function that this part performs is that it does not allow the wine to heat from contact by hand. Hold the wine glass by the leg – so you better enjoy the taste. The best design options, both classic and modern, can be found on our website.
- The bowl. The shape of the bowl is often invented by a sommelier specifically for a specific type of drink, and sometimes you can see specific bar glassware for the area of wine production.
- The color of the glass. Of course, in the modern world, modern glassware designs allow themselves much more than a classic crystal clear crystal, which allows you to evaluate the whole game of shades of wine. Nevertheless, sometimes cut or carving, like colored glass, can diversify your bar and come in handy for other interesting drinks. Wine requires classic, original glassware.

How to pick glassware for wine
To drink red wine, you need to know about the two main types of glassware for wine. For dry red wine, the best in the Burgundy and Bordeaux types of glasses. The first is wider and slightly lower; it is known for its expanding neck of the bowl. This form allows you to capture the entire volume of the aroma of a wine. Glasses for red wines are always more substantial and more extensive; ideally, they reach a volume of half a liter or more, because they simultaneously serve as a decanter. In such glasses, as in the decanter, the wine can soften, remove excessive tannin, and reveal aromatics. The leg is also not important in them, and it is made long even in modern glassware designs.
Each region is famous not only for its excellent white wines but also for its glass from which these wines are drunk. The variety of glasses for white wine leads to endless debate about which shape of the glass will reveal the best qualities of wine. A drink should help to let the aroma open and prevent the wine from warming up. At the same time, he must not let the wine run out too soon. Of course, the forms of glasses for modern glassware are countless, but you need to find a good set of medium glasses for white wine and perhaps another one for chardonnay.
A good bar should always have the right champagne glasses. All three types of sparkling wine glasses have long legs and slightly different bowl shapes. The most commonly used now are, of course, tulips and flutes. Having narrow flasks, they are great to show the game of bubbles. Nevertheless, now the couplet is returning to fashion, and modern vintage glassware proposes different sets of a classic glass, painted on the shape of the breast of Marie Antoinette. But still, you should not use this modern glassware set if you like to observe the bubbles.
