Wine glass guide

Guidebook for wine glasses

Wine glasses are objects of fine glass or crystal glass from which white or red wine is drunk. On wine glass consists of a bulbous glass and a narrow stem. The wine glass with stalk resting on a small round glass plate. While red wine glassesa slightly more bulbous shape than glasses for White wineown, white wine glasses are usually smaller. This is because red wine should still breathe before drinking. The bulbous shape of the red wine glasses offers the red wine the necessary space. White wine, on the other hand, can be poured and drunk directly after opening the bottle.

Wine glasses made of simple glass or precious crystal

Wine glasses are made from two materials: simple glass or precious crystal. The original material for wine glasses was crystal. With the emergence of glass production, it was first the crystal or lead crystal that was used for the production of wine glasses. By the way, the lead crystal for the production of the noble products came from Bohemia. The most colored crystal glasseswere very expensive and were therefore used exclusively by the nobility. They had beautiful engravings and were still made by hand. Many of the precious wine glasses of earlier centuries can now be admired in museums. It was not until much later that the manufacture of plain, white glass prevailed. At the latest from the beginning of industrial production, wine glasses were then also affordable for normal households.

Numerous manufacturers of wine glasses

Worldwide, there are a large number of manufacturers of wine glasses. Among them are such traditional German companies as Schott Zwiesel, Villeroy & Boch, Rosenthal or Ritzenhoff, but also many companies in Austria, France or China. Especially the wine glasses from China are very cheap. These are mainly obtained from discounters such as Ikea. Wine glasses from brand manufacturers, on the other hand, are usually available in well-stocked department stores, interior design and decorative shops or on the Internet. Sites such as Amazon or Ebay, but also many home and Dekoseiten or the manufacturers themselves offer wine glasses for red and white wine now on their websites for sale.

Where wine glasses are used

One of the most important places to use wine glasses is private households. There is probably no household in which not some wine glasses are available. Mostly you buy wine glasses in a set with four or six identical glasses. Wine glasses are often kept in apartments and houses in beautiful glass cases. Wine glasses are also an integral part of restaurants, bars and hotels. In every restaurant and every bar there is always a large supply of wine glasses, after all, wine is drunk most often besides beer and water. In the bar area, wine glasses stand in open shelves or hang in special rails. In restaurants wine glasses are already prepared on the set table. At home, wine glasses are used for festive menus, but also for normal dinners. The wine glass is usually right above the plate. Right next to it a glass should be placed for water.

The right cleaning of wine glasses

Wine glasses must be thoroughly cleaned after each use. In addition to residues of red or white wine, the glasses also have residues from the food or lipstick traces. Most wine glasses can now be easily cleaned in the dishwasher. For crystal glasses this is often not the case, they should be rinsed better for safety by hand. For a nice shine, wine glasses are then gently polished with a cloth.
