Working on your wedding registry, but not quite sure where to start when it comes to glassware? Don’t fret, our Master Sommelier Virginia Philip is here to help.
Her expert tip: “When registering for your glassware, keep in mind who your guests are and also when and why you may use specific glassware.”
Which brand is best for you? Here are Virginia’s favorite three brands and how to use each glass style…
1. Riedel – The true wine connoisseur’s glass, Riedel is a must for couples who appreciate a great glass of wine. The shape of the glass helps to enhance the taste profile and the clear glass allows for a perfect view of the wine’s color nuances.
2. Tiffany – Simple yet oh-so elegant, Tiffany glasses can be used for everyday drinking and special celebrations. While the shape is not designed for specific use, the glass is best for red versus white wines.
3. Waterford – For the truly elegant dinner table, these crystal glasses are a must. Perfect for the holidays and impressionable to guests, this is your special occasion glassware collection.
