What should I look for when purchasing stemware?

What to look for when purchasing stemware

Look for the thinnest rim you can find. Wine always seems to taste better when you drink it from a thin-rimmed glass. If you are a wine lover who is shopping for stemware (or registering for your upcoming wedding), keep in mind that many sets of "good crystal" have really, really thick rims. And some crystal glasses are too small to really appreciate the wine inside. Also, look for wine glasses that have large bowls. This allows you to swirl the wine and release its aromas. Large wine glasses also look really attractive setting on the dining room table. If you can only afford one set of wine glasses and plan to use them for both reds and whites, select a medium-sized bowl.
