Does Your Wine Glass Really Matter?

Is the overwhelming variety of glass shapes just marketing hype or is there science to it?

If you have been wine tasting recently, or shopping for new glassware, you may have noticed an overwhelming variety of glass shapes and styles. Some people think it’s only the wine that matters, and that the abundance of glassware is just marketing hype to increase sales. They believe that the wine will taste the same out of any vessel; whether it’s a mason jar, coffee mug, straight from the bottle, or the “appropriate” glass for that particular style of wine. However, according to Claus Riedel, the specific shape of the glass helps a wine drinker to pick up every aroma of the wine and also direct the wine to the exact part of the mouth that would allow him/her to taste that wine best.
