Does The Shape of the Glass Really Matter?

March 21st, 2019

I recently attended a huge wine show at the Javitz Center in Manhattan called VinExpo.

There were 1000’s of wines to try, plus a few sprits – I had some wonderful whiskey from France called Half Moon.

There were also classes and seminars. I attended a seminar sponsored by the Riedel company who makes beautiful glassware – mostly wine glasses.

In fact we use Riedel wine glasses at the Private Club where I work. The purpose of this seminar was to show that the glass has a substantial influence on your experience drinking the wine. Of course these glasses look beautiful, so that’s a great start. They feel great when you pick them up and are perfectly balanced…we all know to hold a wine glass by the stem yes? In fact it was said in the seminar “if a glass has a stem, use it!” This is of course so that you do not warm up your wine or whatever beverage with your body heat.

I caught up with Anne Koziara, who gave the seminar, on the exhibition floor after … we’ll talk to her in just a moment.

Our sponsor this week is CAKE POS from Sysco.
