Does Wine Taste Different Out Of A Stemless Glass?
Stemless wine glasses have emerged as a popular trend due to their accessibility and versatility. However, to sip wine at peak performance, stick with a stemmed glass.
Stems serve an important purpose for enjoying wine. They allow you to swirl the wine to better aerate it while avoiding contact between your hand and the glass.
With stemless glasses, much more of your hand comes into contact with the glass, warming it and the wine inside. Over time, the wine's flavors can become muted as it warms up.
In general, chilled wines like whites and rosé will taste better in a stemmed glass. In the case of chilled reds, a little body heat may help open the wine up.
