    Which Wine Glass Should I Give?

    April 1, 2014 by Andre

    There are so many different styles of stemware, it’s sometimes hard to tell which glasses are appropriate for which occasion. We offer engraving on a variety of types of wine glasses and stemware, and we carry a number of red and white wine glasses as well as champagne flutes. Over the years we have noticed that most people give toasting flutes for special occasions such as weddings, births, special events and anniversaries. The tall thin bowl portion of the glass provide us an excellent place to engrave romantic hearts or doves along with names and dates.

    Toasting Glasses for Champagne are designed with tall stems and narrow bowls to keep in the bubbles of the champagne or sparkling wine. Taller bowls also give you a chance to watch the bubbles rise for a dramatic effect and most champagne glasses have tall stems, giving you a good place to hold the glass without warming it with your hands.

    Engraved Wine GlassesIf you are giving the flutes as a present, you might want to add a gift box and also a bottle of “bubbly” for the added touch. Champagne, is the famous sparkling wine from from a specific region in France, but other fine sparkling wines are available and almost as well know, such as Asi, Cava, and Posecco.

    We offer a variety of different styles of toasting flutes. One of my favorite styles is the Anka, a set of crystal flutes with thin walls and an elegant stem. These glasses look terrific when engraved and are a keepsake people will cherish for years. Or if you have a more whimsical gift in mind, then try our Intertwined heart Flutes. Your message can be engraved on the crystal bowls and they will be kept smudge-free by the tall thin stems.

    Red Wine Glasses can also be great gifts. We can engrave practically anything on these large styled glasses. You can submit your own artwork or choose from our house designs.

    Examples of red wine are:

    • Beaujolais
    • Bordeaux
    • Burgundy
    • Cabernet Franc
    • Cabernet Sauvignon
    • Chianti
    • Malbec
    • Merlot
    • Petite Sirah
    • Pinot Noir
    • Shiraz
    • Zinfandel

    White Wine Glasses have more narrow styled bowls and were designed to slowly release the scent of the wine while keeping the temperature cool. Even though these glasses are smaller and more narrow, they have just enough room to engrave your personalized message and some artwork.

    Types of White Wine:

    • Chardonnay
    • Chenin Blanc
    • Muscadet
    • Muscat Blanc
    • Pinot Gris
    • Riesling
