And, perhaps most importantly, no wine is wasted in the process. Kohji Mitsubayashi, at the Tokyo Medical and Dental University, and colleagues impregnated a mesh with the enzyme alcohol oxidase, which converts low molecular weight alcohols and oxygen into aldehydes and hydrogen peroxide. Horseradish peroxide and luminol were also immobilised on the mesh and together initiate a colour change in response to hydrogen peroxide. When this mesh is placed on top of a wine glass, colour images from a camera watching over the mesh on top of a glass of wine can be interpreted to map the concentration distribution of ethanol leaving the glass. Different glass shapes and temperatures can bring out completely different bouquets and finishes from the same wine. So Mitsubayashi’s team analysed different wines, in different glasses – including different shaped wine glasses, a martini glass and a straight glass – at different temperatures. At 13°C, the alcohol concentration in the centre of the wine glass was lower than that around the rim. Wine served at a higher temperature, or from the martini or straight glass, did not exhibit a ring-shaped vapour pattern. ‘This ring phenomenon allows us to enjoy the wine aroma without interference of gaseous ethanol. Accordingly, wine glass shape has a very sophisticated functional design for tasting and enjoying wine,’ explains Mitsubayashi. Wine scientist Régis Gougeon, from the University of Burgundy, France, says the work is really interesting when considering its experimental setup, which allows for a rather straightforward and inexpensive detection of ethanol. ‘Bearing in mind the flavour enhancer properties of ethanol, this work provides an unprecedented image of the claimed impact of glass geometry on the overall complex wine flavour perception, thus validating the search for optimum adequation between a glass and a wine.’ In the future the system could help indicate the best wine glass and precise temperature to serve a certain wine.

Different shaped glasses are used to accentuate the unique characteristics of different styles of wine. Wide mouthed glasses function similarly to red wine glasses discussed above, promoting rapid oxidation which alters the flavor of the wine. White wines which are best served slightly oxidized are generally full flavored wines, such as oaked chardonnay. For lighter, fresher styles of white wine, oxidation is less desirable as it is seen to mask the delicate nuances of the wine. To preserve a crisp, clean flavor, many white wine glasses will have a smaller mouth, which reduces surface area and in turn, the rate of oxidization. In the case of sparkling wine, such as Champagne or Asti, an even smaller mouth is used to keep the wine sparkling longer in the glass.wine tasting glasses 4Wine Tastings are full of new experiences, new wines, new information and new favourites to go home with. One thing that remains the same is the size and the shape of the glass you drink from. ISO Style Wine Tastings Glasses are designed to give a standardised assessment for all types of wine and are suitable for home and professional use. Our glasses generally suit all types of wine tasting requirements, whether it’s the traditional wine tasting glass (21.5 cl) you require which is the recognized size for wine tasting courses and educational certificates, or you prefer a slightly larger (31cl or 41cl) or a smaller version (12cl) which is ideal for Ports and Sherries.wine tasting glasses 5Not only do our wine tasting glasses enhance customers’ wine, but they are built for quality by some of the most trusted vendors in the glassware industry.

These glasses are typically used more casually than their traditional counterparts, as they negate the benefits of using stemmed wine glasses.wine tasting glasses 8ISO wine tasting glasses are used around the world by wine merchants, professionals and pubs, bars and restaurants. They are ideal for all types of wine tastings, courses and events. ISO wine glasses are also available for glass hire.

Wine glasses, with the exception of the hock glass, are generally not coloured or frosted as doing so would diminish appreciation of the wine’s colour.wine tasting glasses 11Glasses for red wine are characterized by their rounder, wider bowl, which increases the rate of oxidation. As oxygen from the air chemically interacts with the wine, flavor and aroma are believed to be subtly altered. This process of oxidation is generally considered more compatible with red wines, whose complex flavours are said to be smoothed out after being exposed to air. Red wine glasses can have particular styles of their own, such aswine tasting glasses 12The International Organization for Standardization has a specification (ISO 3591:1977) for a wine-tasting glass. It consists of a cup (an “elongated egg”) supported on a stem resting on a base. The opening is narrower than the convex part so as to concentrate the bouquet. The capacity is approximately 215mL, but it is intended to take a 50mL pour. Some glasses of a similar shape, but with different capacities, may be loosely referred to as ISO glasses, but they form no part of the ISO specification.wine tasting glasses 13Different glass shapes and temperatures can bring out completely different bouquets and finishes from the same wine.

It is generally composed of three parts: the bowl, stem, and foot. Selection of a particular wine glass for a wine style is important, as the glass shape can influence its perception.wine tasting glasses 15Champagne flutes are characterised by a long stem with a tall, narrow bowl on top. The shape is designed to keep sparkling wine desirable during its consumption. Just as with wine glasses, the flute is designed to be held by the stem to help prevent the heat from the hand from warming the liquid inside. The bowl itself is designed in a manner to help retain the signature carbonation in the beverage. This is achieved by reducing the surface area at the opening of the bowl. Additionally the flute design adds to the aesthetic appeal of champagne, allowing the bubbles to travel further due to the narrow design, giving a more pleasant visual appeal.
