The Technique Of Tasting

A tasting glass needs to be clear, plain, quite roomy (a capacity of 200-230ml is ideal) and inward-curving at the top. This "tulip" shape, widely available, holds and concentrates the aromas rising from the wine, and also helps prevent spillage when the wine is swirled around or when the glass is tilted to examine its colour. There is an ISO (International Standards Organisation) glass, which the professionals use, which is both an excellent tasting tool and a good all-purpose glass for the table.
