Wine glasses are essential if you are planning on enjoying a good bottle of wine...enjoying being the key word! It is entirely possible to simply drink wine in a normal glass or - gasp!- straight out of the bottle, but what isn't possible with these methods is tasting and experiencing everything the wine has to offer, especially when it comes to our featured wine of the month club wines.
There are many different types of wine glasses out there, and let's be realistic, none of us have the cabinet space it would require. So, we've put together an infographic with the most commonly used glasses, which varietals are best expressed in each glass, and what makes them the best choice for your bottle of wine.
Already have the glasses and just need the good stuff to pour into them? Here are our recommendations for which wines to enjoy in each type of wine glass:
