Wine glasses are a key component of any well-stocked bar, and at a minimum, you need a set of glasses that will work for red and white wine and a set of champagne glasses - either flutes or coupe glasses depending on your preference. If you're a true wine connoisseur, you may want to expand your collection even further with glasses for specific varietals. Whatever your needs, you'll have a wide range of choices at Williams Sonoma Canada.
The size and shape of a wine glass affects the way that both the aroma and flavour of the wine reach the drinker. Pairing wine with the proper glass helps ensure that you're getting the best possible sip every time. Whether you're a dedicated oenophile who is serious about using glasses that are specifically designed for the varietal you're pouring, or a casual wine drinker who just needs a multi-purpose wine glass set, you'll find exactly what you need at Williams Sonoma Canada. Read on for more about a few of your options.
