The basic structure of a wine glass
The flat cup holder allows the glass to stand without tipping over, especially when it is full.
The appearance of the stem of the cup is to prevent the drinker’s hands from touching the belly of the cup, so as to avoid fouling the wine glass or increasing the body temperature of the wine.
The cup belly is probably the most important component of a wine glass, and it is also the most stylized. The shape and size of the cup belly affect the concentration and emission of aroma, the degree of ventilation, and the visual presentation of wine.
The most common shape is the tulip shape, which is slightly wider at the bottom and tapered near the top. This shape allows people to shake the wine and observe, while the aroma will be concentrated in the narrow opening, directly towards the direction of the nose. The glass used to drink full-bodied red wine is usually wide and round at the bottom, the purpose is to allow the wine to have more contact with the air, and provide more space for the rich taste and aroma; while the glass for drinking white wine The bottom is relatively narrow, in order to help keep the wine cool and converge the lighter aroma in a smaller space. Champagne glasses are slender and long to show the rising bubbles and help keep the temperature low.
