The Four Essential Wine Glasses

A great wine is only as good as the glass it is served in. Experts say bad glassware can actually interfere with the taste of a wine. So don't get caught serving your carefully chosen wines in below-average glassware.

Experts say a great wine glass is a plain, colorless, tulip-shaped crystal glass with a stem and very think lip. So when in doubt, this design is a good choice.

A respectable arsenal of stemware includes the four basic glasses:

1. a general-purpose white wine glass
2. a Bordeaux red wine glass
3. a Burgundy red wine glass
4. a champagne flute
