The Ideal Glass

The Burgundy glass is the perfect glass for light and fruity red wines.

The glass is broader than other red wine glasses.

The larger bowl has the function of accumulating the aromas of delicate red wines. It also allows a proper swirling, channeling aromas upward.

In addition, the style of the glass directs the wine to the tip of your tongue for a better reception of the tastes.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
