Design. For red wine.
Developing red wine glassware
A red wine glass bowl needs to be full and rounded with a large opening to allow your nose into the glass to experience the aroma of the wine. Red wines benefit from a larger bowl, which offers greater surface area for aeration, and allows the wine to 'breathe' and fully release the aroma and bouquet of the wine, whilst keeping tannin and oak in balance
Plumm's extensive research with winemakers and industry professionals has led them to design two red wine glasses that they simply call REDa and REDb.
Plumm believe that most red wines can be distinguished into those that are robust and full bodied, and those that are medium to light bodied.
Full bodied red wine requires a larger bowl with a wider opening. This design allows for maximum aeration and for the robust aromas to develop which suits Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and other full bodied red wines!
