Glassware

Entertaining Tip: Glassware

Have appropriate glassware for the types of wine you’ll be serving:

  • White wines tend to be served in tulip shaped glasses
  • Red wine glassware are served in more rounded and larger bowl glasses
  • Sparkling wine glasses are served in tall and thin flutes
  • When you do not have all types of glasses recommended, a suitable all-purpose wine glass should hold 10 ounces, be transparent and have a slight curve at the top

Check your wine glasses before your party to make sure they’re clean and sniff them to be sure they do not smell of soap or anything else. Rinse them off if needed.
