Best wine glasses 2022
A high-quality wine glass can really enhance your drinking experience, not to mention the style perched on your home bar. Today’s best wine glasses come in all sorts of shapes and sizes to match your drinking and decorating style. Some universal options go with all wines, while others pair best with whites, reds, or specific varietals, allowing you to tailor your set to your personal wine preferences.
“There are a wide variety of styles of wine glasses designed specifically to emphasize aspects and personality of a certain style of wine,” says sommelier Art DeCaro, director of training and cellar master for Vineyards by the water, which has multiple locations across the country. “Be sure to select the right style of wine glass for the drink you will be serving so that it is enjoyed to its fullest potential.”
You will also want to consider the durability and maintenance of wine glasses. For example, beautiful, high-end crystal glasses are often quite fragile and require hand washing, which makes them less practical to use. There are also several options available that are dishwasher safe. DeCaro adds, “Honestly, there are way too many styles, and who wants to collect – and have the space to store – all that glass? The necessary basic glass styles that every wine connoisseur should have in their cupboard are red, white, dessert, and sparkling.
With these factors in mind, here are some of the best wine glasses for all types of wine lovers, as recommended by wine experts.
