Recently, we came across an online article “Yes, There Is a Right Way to Hold a Wine Glass”. Rather than get caught up in a “right way” versus a “wrong way” glass-holding discussion, let us first say that we are simply happy to know that you are enjoying your wine.
Now, of course, we realize that there are high-end wine snobs who may look askance at us when we might place our hands around the bowl instead of the stem. But unless the wines you are drinking are so special and so delicate that the few degrees difference (if even that amount) from warmth of your hand may bring to the wine will dramatically alter its taste, we will continue to let others focus on how to hold the glass. That may happen, but its not what we spend our time or our energies worrying about.
So, what does matter to us when it comes to your wine glass?
Helping each wine, no matter the price point, no matter the wine type, achieve its stated tasteful purpose for you and your guests has always been our main goal at Stölzle.
So, go ahead and hold your glass however you like. But, always enjoy the wine.
After all, for more than 130 years now, we have always put our attention towards making sure our glasses perform to their peak and deliver the proper flavor profile that you and your guests are looking for. Maximizing the enjoyment and the experience is what it's all about.
More smile on more faces.
