There are tons of different types of crystal wine glasses out there. Some are stemless, some are stemmed. Some have rounded bowls and others have the classic tulip shaped bowl. But with the number of crystal wine glasses out there, it can be overwhelming to choose which crystal wine glass goes with which wine – unless the product has it in its title. We’ve decided to put together an easy reference post utilizing our own crystal wine glasses to help you easily determine the best wine to serve with each glass.
In our Serenity Crystal Wine Glasses Line:
Serenity 12oz Crystal Wine Glass
Best for white wine, it is the smallest wine glass available in our crystal stemware collection. A white wine glass should have a prominent U-shaped appearance to maintain the cooler temperatures. If you’re looking for a red wine glass that would pair nicely next to the 12oz Crystal Wine Glass, I would recommend the 16oz wine glass as it has the best scale in relation to the size of glass.
Serenity 16oz Crystal Wine Glass
This glass is a versatile glass in that it can be a red wine glass when paired with a 12oz glass for white wine or can be a white wine glass when paired with either the 19oz red wine glass or 22oz red wine glass. Because of its size the 16oz crystal wine glass would pair nicely with any of the other wine glasses in our Serenity line. Its scale works well with any of the glasses.
Serenity 19oz Crystal Wine Glass
This glass is best as a red wine glass due to the size of the bowl. It has a fuller, rounder bowl which allows the red wine to properly breathe. The complex aromas and flavour bouquet that exists in red wine requires a glass with a larger bowl to ensure the red wine contacts more air during the pour or swirl.
Serenity 22oz Crystal Wine Glass
This glass is again best as a red wine glass due to the size of the bowl which allows the wine to breathe.
In the Victoria Crystal Wine Glasses Line
Victoria 23oz Crystal Wine Glass
If used along with the Victoria 28oz wine glass, the 23oz makes sense to use as a white wine glass but works best with red wine in all honesty. If used entirely by itself I would recommend it as a red wine glass as it has that great bulb shaped bowl synonymous with luxury. It has the slight inward curve at the top of the glass to focus aromas and still a decent amount of room to swirl the wine.
Victoria 28oz Crystal Wine Glass
This wine glass is the ultimate shaped bowl for red wine. Bulbous and round, it allows substantial breathing for the wine. It has the slight inward curve at the top of the glass to focus the aromas and provides substantial room for swirling and swishing of the wine.
Hopefully this blog post gives you a useful reference point to look for when choosing the best crystal wine glasses for your event or establishment.
