Traditional wine tastings allow enthusiasts to try a large variety of wines from a particular area of genre all in one convenient location. But a new kind of wine tasting is catching on with those who want to learn all there is to know about wine and its consumption. This wine tasting idea does not change the wine on the individual but instead changes the glasses in which the wine is drank from.
Not all wine consumers realize that the glass you drink your wine from can have a significant impact on how that particular vintage will taste. For example there are wine specific wares such as the Sauvignon Blanc Wine Glasses or even those made just for Chardonnay. The key to these glasses is they are designed to place the wine on a particular point of the tongue to achieve the desired flavors it specializes in.
The best way for wine lovers to experience these wine specific glasses is to enjoy the same wine from a variety to see just how much of an impact the design can have on the flavor. This type of wine tasting is growing in popularity with those who want to truly experience every bottle as it was intended by the vineyard.
