How to match wine glasses with your favourite wines when entertaining at home
LUCARIS tells us how to use its wine glasses at a dinner party
For decades now, wine has been categorised as an opulent accompaniment to any gathering or soirée. The luxe beverage offers an array of options to suit one’s palate and personality which makes it an ideal choice while entertaining at home. Consumption of wine is known to have a couple of prerequisites like food pairings or even glass pairings to elevate its experience.
The wine glass is an important vessel to ensure you are getting the best experience a wine has to offer. Understanding how a wine glass can mould the taste of wine can be of huge benefit to maximise the taste. It all comes down to the two main parts of a wine glass, the bowl and the stem that influence tastes on the palate. Wine glass bowls come in many different shapes and sizes, which impact how well the wine can breathe as well as which taste buds the wine touches first. The stem allows you to elegantly hold the glass without heating up your wine.
LUCARIS has offered the unique shape, designed with the finest rims, to ensure that LUCARIS wine glasses deliver the best sensory accompaniment to your wine. A perfectly laid out dinner party begins with the bubbly welcome of a champagne or sparkling wine that should be served in the tulip share of Desire Sparkling, letting you sense the aroma upon your first sip and keep the bubbles on the tip of your tongue. Moving on to the three-course meal setting, a crisp or full-bodied white wine like oak-aged Chardonnay, Viognier including White Rioja to complement the soup course and entrees, is to be offered in the Desire Crisp White or Desire Rich White. Slightly sip on a light red wine like Pinot Noir, Gamay or Nebbiolo, etc., with your favourite cheese using Desire Elegant Red, followed by a medium to full-bodied red like Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux, etc., for the main course, for which Desire Robust Red should be the clear pick. To end the final course on a sweet note, there is always a decadent dessert wine, which goes perfectly with Desire Universal.
The right crystal glassware can enhance the entire dining and wining experience of the evening.
