The wine glasses can be divided into three categories: red wine glass, white wine glass and champagne cup. A variety of wines to use different types of glasses, in order to make wine more mellow. The function of the glass is to keep the aroma of wine, so that wine can be rotated in the cup and fully integrated with the air. Standard cup type for the big mouth big cup, the so-called tulip cup, so it is conducive to the aroma gathered in the cup above. High reason is that you can hold the cup for hand, so that hands touch the cup and affect the wine temperature. Ancient poem: "grape wine night light cup, want to drink pipa immediately reminder."

Vineyard, because it has a slender base and was called the goblet by the mass image, but in fact, the goblet is just one of the wines. In the wine culture, the glass is an important part of its indispensable, in the Western traditional view, for the wine to choose the right glass, can help better taste wine.

Red wine cup cup at the bottom of the handle, the upper body is more round and white cup. It is mainly used for red wine and cocktails made with it. Burgundy red wine glass for the bottom of the wide tulip cup.

White wine cup cup at the bottom of a handle, upper body red wine glass slender, larger curvature, but the overall height than the red wine glass short. Mainly used to contain white wine. White wine cups, Burgundy white wine cups than the red wine with a slightly larger, full of full type.

Champagne Cup Tulip type, cup straight and slender, goblet.


In the design, the white wine glass cup body slightly red wine glass to be slender, curvature larger, but the overall height is lower than the red wine glass. Because the white wine in the taste and taste to be slightly light, do not need a larger cup of belly to release the aroma of wine. According to the different varieties of grapes, white wine glasses are generally more than three, Chardonnay (Chardonnay) Cup, Sauvignon (Sauvignon Blanc) Cup and Riesling (Riesling) Cup. As Sophora is refreshing, Gan Lie type of wine, so the glass of the openings and cup belly are relatively small, so that the wine will soon flow into the tongue, so that the mouth of the wine was wrapped in wine and fruit, so as to dilute the acidity of the wine ; Chardonnay glasses in the openings and cup belly to be relatively large, it is full of wine, suitable for the use of round belly-shaped glass; and Riesling glass in the cup to be higher on the belly, its wine in the acidity On the slightly better, this design can slow down the speed of wine into the mouth.

Champagne cup body should have a certain length, which can fully appreciate the wine in the cup continued to blister the fun, while the wine can slowly flow into the mouth, you can fine drink; take into account the high sugar content of sugar , Suitable for postprandial drinking characteristics, sweet wine cups are not great, the opening design is also smaller, so as to better highlight the aroma of the wine and the taste of honey; and the glass in the appearance of the relatively small, So as to avoid the embarrassment of excessive drinking.

In addition, the glass classification there are some professional glasses, which is what we should be familiar with the type of glass. International Standard Wine Cup, also known as the ISO Cup (International Standards Organization), is in 1974 by the French INAO (National Origin Committee) design, widely used in international wine tasting activities of all-round glass. Its cup feet 5 to 6 cm high, the cup capacity of 215 ml or so, the wine cup mouth big belly big, cup shaped like blooming tulips. Cup body capacity is large, which makes the wine in the cup can breathe freely; slightly narrowed cup design, is to let the wine in the shaking when not outside the splash, and the wine can be gathered in the cup, in order to better Feel the wine. Simply put, the professional blind cup is a black-coated ISO-standard glass for Blind Tasting. Everyone is familiar with the blind part of the cloth or tin foil is usually covered with wine labels, and the emergence of professional blind cups increase the difficulty of blind, so the level of the test wine made a higher demand.

As for the amount of wine when the amount of wine, I believe that we are generally concerned about the issue. In general, the amount of white wine / liqueur is about 3 ounces (about 90 milliliters), and the amount of red wine is about 5 ounces (about 150 milliliters).
