This may seem like a triviaGLASS SIZESl characteristic to some, however, the bowl is the part of the wine glass where you will see the most variation.  In general, every wine glass has a bowl that is tapered towards the top creating a narrower opening which allows you to properly capture the wine’s aroma in your nose and mouth.

The bowls of red wine glasses tend to be wider and rounder, the bowls of white wine glasses vary depending on the characteristic of the wine; sherry is generally served in a short and narrow-mouthed bowl while sparkling wine and champagne flutes are famous for evenly and consistently distributing the bubbles we love so much.
