Which glass of wine to use

Which glass of wine to use
Follow the Froggies: Alsace gastronomy.Whether it's large and round with a wide opening, or tall, narrow and tulip-shaped, a wine glass is a vessel built to enhance wine appreciation. Of course, the basic purpose of the glass is to hold liquid, so almost anything will do in a pinch. At European bistros, you might even get your house wine in what looks like a jelly jar. This is rustic and comfortable, and for many wines this will do just fine.

But there are good reasons for the different sizes and shapes of wine glasses.
Wine lovers swirl a glass of wine to release and collect the aromas. The larger the area for these aromas to collect, the more you will be able to smell.
So, for wines with the most to offer by way of aroma, a larger glass (12 ounces or more), filled about half-way or less, is best. The minimum size for a wine glass is about 6 ounces.

Sparkling wine should be served in a glass that is taller and narrower—one that allows maximum enjoyment of the bubbles as they rise but also has room for collecting aromas. Swirling is difficult unless the top of the glass narrows (often referred to as tulip-shaped).
The color of wine is an attractive feature and can be just as enticing as the aromas. Those pretty, multi-colored wine glasses you inherited from your grandmother are fun and bring back memories, but to fully appreciate the color of wine, clear glass is best.
Most wineries and good wine shops have glassware for sale that has been chosen by experts, and they have personnel to help you choose wine glasses to suit your personal style and needs.

How long can wine lasts once opened?

The main problem is that once wine is exposed to air, its flavor and aroma will slowly deteriorate. Chilling will slow the process, but a better way is to reduce the amount of air in the bottle by decanting into smaller bottles that are filled to the top. You can also raise the level of the wine by adding marbles to the bottle.
White wines, if refrigerated, often last longer than reds, but it is best to use any table wine within a day or two of opening.
There are special sealers for sparkling wines that help keep the bubbles fresh.Many wineries sell them in their tasting rooms. Fortified wines such as ports and sherries keep very well after opening-at least a week and often longer.
