Not sure of which wine goes in what glass?

Just keep in mind that wine glasses were not designed to merely impress your guests.

That tall flute glass, for example, not only helps bubbles circulate in chilled champagne. Its slender stem also allows you to hold the glass without raising the champagne's temperature.

On the other hand, bold red wines usually require a bit more 'elbow room' in a wider glass with a bigger bowl, to help aerate and release its true flavors. To prove it, at your next wine tasting party pour a glass of red wine in a small glass, and another in a larger glass, and see the unique difference it makes in your mouth!

While there is lots of debate about what wine glass best suits a particular wine, these are the classic shapes that have become universally accepted for enjoying wine to the fullest:

1. Port, 2. Brandy snifter 3. white wine, 4. red wine, 5. red burgundy,
6.
Champagne flute 7. Champagne coupe
