Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling: Deciphering The Best Glass For White Wine

When it comes to wine glasses, shape and style truly matter. Using the incorrect type of drinkware is the fastest way to ensure you don't get the most out of that expensive bottle. At Harris Scarfe, we're committed to providing wine lovers with a fantastic assortment of speciality glassware, designed to enhance the entire experience. If you're looking for information on how to discern which type of wine glass is right for you, you're in the right place!

Is There A Difference Between White & Red Wine Glasses?

Yes, there is a difference between white and red wine glasses. White wine glasses have a smaller bowl and a narrower opening than red wine glasses. This shape helps to preserve the delicate floral aromas of white wine, which tend to be less bold and complex than red wine. White wine is typically more sensitive to temperature change which can negatively impact the taste. The longer stem on white wine glasses allows for the wine to stay cooler for longer, as the heat from your hand will not transfer to the wine as easily.

White wine also does not need to breathe to the same extent as red wine. This means a decanter usually isn't necessary. For very light white wines, decanting to a carafe can actually cause the delicate aromas to waft away, which is not ideal!

White Wine Glasses FAQ

What is the best glassware for white wine?

The best glassware for white wine is a U-shaped glass with a narrow mouth. This type of glass allows the aromas and flavours to be concentrated, while the narrow mouth helps to preserve the wine's temperature. Additionally, a stem is preferred over a stemless glass since this prevents the transfer of heat from your hand to the wine.

Is white wine good for you?

Drinking white wine in moderation may offer certain health benefits due to its high antioxidant content. These antioxidants help prevent damage to cells, reduce inflammation and may even lower the risk of some chronic diseases, such as heart disease. A bottle of white wine will also generally have fewer calories than a bottle of red wine.

How to clean white wine glasses?

Learning how to effectively clean delicate white wine glasses that are prone to residue and stains is an important part of caring for your glassware. Ensure you thoroughly rinse the glasses in warm water, using a mild detergent with a soft sponge. Dry with a lint-free cloth, and store in a clean, dry place. These steps will keep the glasses clean and sparkling for their next use.
