Buying Wine Glasses for Your Venue – Red wine glasses and white wine glasses for every occasion
Selecting the proper wine glasses for your venue is an important decision that can impact the overall experience of your customers. With so many products and options available, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin.
Let’s look at the different types of wine glasses available and the main factors to consider when buying them, plus tips for selecting the right glasses for your venue.
Types of Wine Glass
There are several types of wine glasses to discover, including red wine glasses, white wine glasses, and if you prefer, universal glasses that can be used for both red and white wines.
A selection of glasses are used by venues to enhance the drinking experience, to promote flavour, smell, colour and upsell wine to maximise profitability.
Red Wine Glasses:
Red wine glasses typically have a larger bowl and wider opening to allow the red wine to breathe and release its aroma when served. This design helps to enhance the flavors and aromas of full-bodied red wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. A collection of red wine glasses are available from all major brands for you to discover and purchase, be sure to check the stock when placing an order through the checkout for availability.
White Wine Glasses:
These glasses have a smaller bowl than red wine glasses from which to drink. This helps to maintain the cooler temperature of the wine; most winemakers will suggest an ideal serving temperature if you read the label.
The narrow opening of white wine glasses helps to concentrate the delicate aromas of white wines from around the world, such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Grigio, helping to amplify the taste.
This type of wine glass will often be available in a set and will look at home in a busy restaurant venue or in your kitchen at home. Smart Hospitality Supplies sells commercial brands and stock direct to the end user at trade prices.
These glasses are a versatile option that can be used for a variety of white and red wines and are available as a matching collection. They typically have a medium-sized bowl and a slightly wider opening than white wine glasses and are ideal for fast-paced venues where staff may not have time to sort glasses to keep up with demand.
A set of universal glasses is often very useful for serving wine, such as a rose or a blush, providing the perfect glass for customers to enjoy.
Factors to Consider When Buying Wine Glasses
When purchasing a set of wine glasses for your venue, there are several factors to consider. These include budget, durability, style, and functionality.
Depending on your needs, you may prefer a certain material, such as crystal or glass, or you may prioritise a glass that is dishwasher safe or stackable for easy storage. Always read the product packaging for dishwasher instructions for all of our products and ask our friendly team of staff about free delivery on large orders.
You should also consider the aesthetic of the glasses and how they will fit into the overall ambiance of your venue. Glasses are available in a collection so that you can match white and red glasses in style for your customers to enjoy.
Choosing the Right Wine Glasses for Your Venue
To select the proper wine glasses for your venue, it is important to assess your needs and evaluate your options. Consider the types of wine you will be serving and how the glasses will impact the drinking experience.
For example, if you are serving a lot of white wine, it may be beneficial to invest in white wine glasses that will enhance the flavour and aroma of the wine. You should also consider the durability and lifespan of the glasses, as well as the cost and availability of replacements.
Red wine from around the world is often served in a larger glass which takes up more shelf and dishwasher space. If you serve a lot of red wine, you should consider a glass for your bar or restaurant that is stylish, durable and also practical.
Caring for Your Wine Glasses
Once you have purchased your wine glasses, it is essential to care for them properly to ensure they last as long as possible. This includes cleaning them regularly, storing them carefully to avoid breakage, and replacing them when they show signs of wear and tear. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for care and maintenance.
Wine Glass Style and Design
The style and design of your wine glasses can have a big impact on the overall aesthetic of your venue. There are many different options to choose from, ranging from classic and traditional to modern and contemporary.
Some wine glasses have a simple and elegant design, while others may feature intricate patterns or etchings. When selecting the style and design of your wine glasses, consider how they will fit into the overall aesthetic of your venue, as well as how they will complement the types of wine you will be serving.
