The taste of a wine is said to be affected by the shape and size of a wine glass. The glass should be such that the aroma of the wine precedes the actual drinking part. Also, the glass should facilitate holding the drink in a proper manner so that the warmth of the palm does not affect the drink. So, when you think of giving someone wine glasses as a gift, you should take care to ensure that the glasses fulfill these criteria.
A special occasion can be commemorated by giving high quality wine glasses as a gift. It can be given as a wedding gift, retirement gift, promotion gift or on any special event due to its sound aesthetic as well as functional appeal. You can also personalize this gift item by engraving a personal message or the names of the recipient on the glasses. The recipient would just love to stock up their wine cabinets with such a personalized and affectionate gift item.
Red wine glasses are one of the wine glasses that are considered to be a good gift item. They are characterized by a wide and round bowl followed by a stem, and are available in a wide range to choose from. Bordeaux glasses are tall and designed to enjoy full bodied wines like Cabernet and Merlot and the Burgundy glasses are characterized by a broader bowl and meant to enjoy delicate wines such as the Pinot Noir.
