A high quality wine glass perfectly harmonizes every wine's aroma and flavour. The shape of the glass will greatly emphasize the distribution of the aromas.
Lead crystal guarantees brilliance, glare, resonance and purity. This material is porous which allows the wine to breathe.
Unfortunately, lead is very harmful to the environment, which is why Bormioli Rocco wine glasses use crystalline (or semi-crystal). Crystalline has the same characteristics as lead crystal and it is recyclable!
The shape of a wine glass is very important as it can alter the aroma (or bouquet) of the wine. Frosted, coloured or worse, metal glasses are not advised. Choose a glass according to its simplicity. It must be colorless and very thin as to not alter the taste of the wine.
There are many types of wine glasses. A wine glass holds an average of 35 cl. It is important that the bowl allow a circular movement to aerate and reveal the subtlety of the bouquet, without being too wide to allow some blending of the flavours.
The names given to the wine glass correspond to the product names found on Trudeau's website.

The purpose of decanting is to separate a wine from any sediment. In order to do so, the wine must be transferred from its original bottle to another container, a decanter. There are two main reasons to decant a wine:
At least one day (24 hours) prior to serving and decanting the bottle must be placed in an upright position. This will allow the sediment to settle at the bottom of the bottle.
Decanting is not mandatory; however, care must be taken when pouring into glasses to avoid mixing any sediment with the wine. It is also possible to separate the lees (sediment) from the wine by using a funnel aerator with decanter.
