How to Hold a Wine Glass: A Beginner’s Guide

Today, let’s talk about something we might not think about often: how to hold a wine glass. Turns out, there’s a bit of an art to it, and it can actually make your wine experience more enjoyable. So, let’s break it down in easy steps.

1. Hold the Stem, Not the Bowl

When you pick up your wine glass, try holding it by the stem, not the bowl. Why? Well, it keeps your warm hands away from the wine, so it stays at the perfect temperature. Plus, it looks kind of fancy!

Years, lovers, and glasses of wine. These are things that should never be counted.

2. Give It a Little Swirl

Ever notice people swirling their wine in the glass? It’s not just for show. By holding the stem, you can give your wine a gentle swirl. This helps mix in some air and lets those awesome Moldovan wine smells come out to play.

3. Sip with Style

When it’s time to take a sip, keep holding that stem. Not only does it make you look like a wine pro, but it also helps keep your wine at the right temperature. It’s all about control and making your sipping experience top-notch.

4. Choose the Right Glass

Lastly, the type of glass matters. For Moldovan reds, go for a glass with a bit of a bowl shape to really catch those rich aromas. If you’re sipping on some Moldovan Ice Wine, a tulip-shaped glass is perfect for intricate flavours and aromas.
