Choosing a good white wine isn't helpful if you serve it poorly. Good wines can be undermined by being served poorly while mediocre wines can really shine if served correctly. The correct wine glass allows you to best experience those flavors and aromas.
One common myth about wine is that you need special wine glasses for each different kind of wine. It is not, however, a wine myth that a lot of people adhere to — probably because so few people can afford to have different wine glasses for each kind of wine. Unfortunately, this seems to create a backlash in which people decide that if they aren't going to have different glasses for each wine, then any old glass is good enough for drinking wine. A little wine glass moderation is needed here.
Choosing a good red wine isn't helpful if you serve it poorly. Good wines can be undermined by being served poorly while mediocre wines can really shine if served correctly. Knowing how to best serve red wines depends most upon the choice of wine glass and the temperature of the wine. The correct temperature allows the wine's flavors and aromas to come out best without being overpowered by acidity or alcohol. The correct wine glass allows you to best experience those flavors and aromas.
The single most important thing you need to pay attention to when choosing the right wine glasses is the wine glass shape. The wrong shape in a wine glass will completely alter the wine tasting experience, even to the point where you can't properly examine or smell the wine in order to evaluate it. You don't necessarily need to get a different glass for every type of wine - though that is possible - but you should try to have a different glass shape for white wine, red wine, and sparkling wine.
It makes no sense spending the money for even moderately priced wine glasses if you aren't going to care for them properly. A good wine glass can be quickly transformed into a poor wine glass through incorrect care. Fortunately, the necessary steps for proper care of wine glasses are all very easy to remember and follow.
