What are the different types of wine glasses?
Red wine glasses
Red wine glasses generally have a larger bowl than white wine glasses, allowing full-bodied reds a chance to breathe and release their more subtle aromas. The large opening also allows you to get up close to the wine for maximum appreciation of the nose.

White wine glasses
White wine glasses come in many different varieties - from narrow sauvignon blanc glasses to wider ones for full-flavored whites, such as chardonnay. Generally, however, they tend to have a smaller bowl so excess oxidation doesn’t interfere with a white wine’s crisp taste and cooler serving temperature.
Enjoy white wine at its most crisp and refreshing with Waterford’s crystal white wine glasses.
Stemless wine glasses
Stemless wine glasses can be found in all the same bowl sizes and shapes as other red and white glasses, but without the fragile stem. Waterford’s stemless wine glasses are perfect for contemporary table settings and a convenient choice when it comes to cleaning and storage.
