Imagine you are a carpenter building a house, and someone tells you that you can pick only one tool to complete the job. Which one do you choose? You know you can’t use a hammer to tighten a screw or a screwdriver to cut a piece of wood, and this is the same as the philosophy of grape varietal specific glasses.

Different wine varieties have different characters and flavor profiles. The size and shape of whatever vessel you use – whether that’s a RIEDEL glass or plastic cup – will alter the way your senses perceive the wine.

This is a great chance to educate yourself and refine your tasting abilities.
