Get Mo Wine and Glassware!

This program was created so you can enjoy a ‘wine tasting’ all around Modesto, but with a twist…we are focusing the tastings on the theme of the month! Last month, wine flights were designed to help you learn and select wines that go with BBQ, in July the series was focused on summer cocktails to make at home and then wine that pairs with chocolate for the month of February. And so on for every month of the year.

Essential Wine Glassware

In my over 36 years in the wine industry I’ve been asked hundreds (if not thousands) of different wine related questions, but one of the questions most often asked—still to this day—is:  “What glass should I serve this wine in?”

On the one hand, this is a pretty easy question to answer.  You should serve it in a glass that DOESN’T LEAK!  Duh!!!

Believe me, I’ve drunk (and thoroughly enjoyed) wines out of pretty much any kind of vessel you can imagine, made from just about every kind of material (aluminum, plastic, wood, cardboard, Styrofoam, clay, glass, etc.) found on earth.  Heck, I’ve even been known to dispense with the glasses entirely when I’m in the middle of nowhere with VERY good friends (Can you say, “Please pass the bottle?”)!

On the other hand, the size, shape, and material of your glass CAN make a difference in how the wine smells, tastes, and feels in your mouth.  But do you really need to own each of the over 80 different styles promoted by one company, Riedel Glass, in order to truly enjoy what’s in that bottle?  NO WAY!

In our home, we USE four (4) styles of wine glasses, for the following reasons and wine types.

NOTE:  The color of the glasses shown in the tasting card/break down above is just to highlight the shapes—yours will be CLEAR glass.

As always, if you need specific advice, just email me: [email protected]

Cheers to you and yours!
