The popularity of wine clubs has meant that more and more people have been introduced to the wonderful world of wine. If you are using a wine club service and enjoying this amazingly diverse world, then regardless of whether you are a novice or someone with a developed tasting palate, having lovely wine glasses can add to your tasting experience.
Some might wonder what difference a glass can make when drinking wine, and the experts will say it can make a big difference! If you are trying to understand wine and learn a little more about the many flavors and taste sensations, then it is well worth buying some quality wine glasses. A good wine glass can help to release the aromas so that your wine tasting experience begins with the nose. A good wine glass makes it all about the wine, and we also think if you are investing in a wine club experience, why not use the best wine glasses available so that you can enjoy a full wine tasting experience.
At the Wine Club Review, we love beautiful wine glasses as we really think it adds to your overall enjoyment of the wine. Following are our favourite wine glasses that we recommend for a complete tasting experience.
Riedel O Wine Tumbler Cabernet/Merlot
Our all-time favourite wine glasses are those by Riedel, though we are particularly fond of their “O” wine tumbler series. Riedel is renowned the world over for their quality and beautiful-to-hold wine glasses. This crystal wine tumbler is in a special set, where you buy 3 and receive 4 glasses. This is a beautiful way to enjoy your red varietals in a stemless tumbler that is beautiful to hold and that has been designed to enhance all your senses so you will taste your favourite red wine at its best.
Riedel O Wine Tumbler Chardonnay/Viognier
This crystal wine tumbler from Riedel is slightly differently shaped to bring out the best in your favourite white wines. A slightly narrower glass than the Cabernet/Merlot tumbler, it has been designed so that you can swirl your favourite white wines while you savor each sip.
