Find the perfect wine for your liking with this must-have set! Featuring five glasses, each sized differently for distinct wine types, this collection is essential to enhance your enjoyment of any bottle.

5-piece set includes:
1 Chardonnay/Montrachet glass
1 Riesling/Sauvignon Blanc glass
1 Pinot Noir (burgundy red) glass
1 Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot (bordeaux) glass
1 Syrah/Shiraz glass62 F.

Each grape varietal carries a distinct flavor profile conveyed by aroma, texture and flavor. Three variables - the size, shape and rim diameter of the glass - alter a wine's flavor profile. The same wine in diverse shaped glasses appears different in quality and intensity.

SEE and observe the shape of the glass and the appearance of the wine. Appearance allows us to determine whether the wine is a red or white varietal.

Use one wine and pour 2oz/60ml into each glass. Take care not to over pour.

When using a glass to SMELL wine, molecule size and weight determine the wine's primary and secondary aromas. When sipping the same wine from different shaped glasses, you will be surprised about the "mouth feel" and how the texture is manipulated by the glass shape.

-Smell each glass first, starting with the glass appropriate to the varietal you have chosen. Concentrate on aroma intensity and quality - determine the difference and judge which aroma pleases you the most.

Our TASTE receptors are sensitive to sweet, sour, salty and bitter sensations. These translate wine to fruit, acidity, minerality and bitter components which create an emotional "flavor picture" on the palate. The correct selection of glass shape highlights the fruit, and shows supporting flavor contributors in an equally balanced way.

-Now taste the wine from the varietal specific glass which was designed for that grape. Take note of the flavors and "mouthfeel"!
