Prior to tasting a wine, ensure that the wine is at the right temperature. The right choice of glass enhances the taste and increases your appreciation of a wine. Start with a clear, thin glass with stem and the rim of the glass should bend inwards to help funnel aromas to the nose, and allow you to swirl without spilling. Never hold the glass by its bowl, only by its stem.
