A wine glass is a type of glass stemware that is used to drink and taste wine. It is generally composed of three parts: the bowl, stem, and foot. Selection of a particular wine glass for a wine style is important, as the glass shape can influence its perception.Wine lovers have always proclaimed that the smelling of wine is actually more significant than the tasting. Yet wine glasses made throughout hundreds of years have continued to ignore this fact until now. Just as the aroma of coffee precedes and strengthens the drinking pleasure that follows, the same can be said for the fine art of drinking wine.
