Shop Stemmed & Stemless Red Wine Glasses For Shiraz, Pinot, Cabernet & More
Red wine is one of the most popular choices to enjoy over dinner, or as a relaxing drop at the end of a long day. Using a proper wine glass can help you to enjoy your wine more fully. The wide bowl allows the wine to breathe and helps to release the flavour and aromatics - while the stem keeps the wine cool, and the shape of the glass enhances the mouthfeel when tasting the wine. At Harris Scarfe, we understand that the proper enjoyment of red wine starts with choosing the right glass. Read on to find out about the best types of glasses for red wine, or if white-grape varieties are more your preference, we also offer a fantastic range of white wine glasses. You can also check out our premium range of wine accessories, specially designed to complement your new set of glassware.
What Are The Best Types Of Red Wine Glasses?
When it comes to red wine glasses, there are a few different types that are considered the best for enhancing aroma, taste, and nosing abilities. Here are some of the top choices:
- Bordeaux glass: Tall with a wide opening, ideal for full-bodied red wines.
- Burgundy glass: Has a wide bowl and a slightly tapered opening, suitable for lighter red wines.
- Universal glass: Standard red wine glass shape. Great all-rounder for a variety of red wines.
- Shiraz glass: Tall with a slightly narrower opening, highlighting the complexities of Shiraz and similar red wines.
- Stemless glass: Can be found in a variety of different body shapes. The main feature of a stemless wine glass is, naturally, the absence of a stem. This can be a great choice for casual entertaining where spills and knocks are more likely.
For red wine in particular, we also recommend investing in a decorative yet functional decanter or carafe.
