It can be very difficult selecting the right glass for your business or your home....what you can be sure of is that you are spoiled for choice. Every glass we list in our catalogue is of commercial quality - that is a gurantee, however there are differences in commercial quality.
Our suggestion is to match your glassware to your overall ambience, operating philosophy and usage. A fine dining restaurant experience isn't typically going to use the same glassware that you will find at the pub.
Consideration should also be given to how the glassware is to be handled and cleaned. The wine glasse is made up of three main components. The foot, the stem and the bowl - There are different shapes and sizes and there is scientific evidence to back up these changes in shape. In 2015, a Japanese medical group used a special camera to record images of ethanol vapors in different glasses. In their study, the research group showed how different glass shapes affected the density and position of vapors at the openings of different glasses.Why do vapors matter? Well, they carry aromatic compounds into your nose. Aromatic compounds are responsible for producing the vast majority of flavors in wine.
Why are there so many different glasses for wine?
Of the many different wine glasses available, you’ll find that certain shapes are better for enjoying certain types of wine.
By the way, it doesn’t really matter if your glass is stemmed or stemless. It’s more about how the shape of the vessel collects aromas and deposits wine into your mouth.
