    qotd: My glass story is similar to yours. I was dubious about that until years ago, after the restaurant I worked at was closed the rest of the staff and I poured off some bottles into all our different glasses. The verdict was that there was definitely a difference, the glasses weren’t different just for ambience. I was pretty surprised at the time.
    Speaking of new things, would love to see you tackle an episode on vi jaune’s. A tasting on different charbono’s would be fun too.
    Great episode Gary btw.

    i was looking at the vivant collection. I’m looking for a versatile red glass. someone above suggested to go with the pinot glass. how is that different than the basic red glass or the bordeaux?

    We were assigned to watch these videos in Geography of Wine at Virginia Tech and this comparison is actually the first chapter in our book. These videos have helped me tremendously as a fairly new wine drinker and I look forward to watching the rest!

    Being poor college students and not having many wine glasses, my roommates and I tried this with the random glasses we have around the apartment for our class at Virginia Tech. The difference between a shot glass, a wine glass and an open bowl is huge for both the red and white wines we tried. I'm glad we watch your show for class!

  • Kristin

    I watch these videos for my wine class at Virginia Tech and this one definitely helped me to understand the importance of how the glass corresponds with the wine! thank you!

  • Ashley

    I'm taking a wine class at Virginia Tech and this has definitely helped me to see how each type of glass will influence the way that wines taste!

    I started out drinking beer, but I decided to take that wine class at Virginia Tech that everybody is talking about. I love exploring wines now. One of the exercises in our book was to drink wine from several types of glasses from shot glass, beer pint, to wine glass. After doing that and watching this I can say it makes a huge difference. You really lose a lot of fruit flavors when you don't use wine glasses.

  • Ashley

    I had no idea that glass size made a difference. Thanks for talking about it! I am also from Virginia Tech taking the Geog of Wines class. Teach us moreee!

  • Mary Kate

    I go to Virginia Tech! LOVE the show… We'd love to have you come talk to us

  • Matt

    You really know your stuff! This video helps with the Virginia Tech class!!

  • Shane

    it would be so great if you could come to Virginia Tech and speak! :)

    Good episode, I agree it makes the whole wine drinking experience better with good wine glasses, I do think that Reidel are over rated/over priced, I like Mondavi's Waterford glasses (Macy's usually has them on sale) for Cab and Chardonnay, also have Pinot glasses. http://www.winelx.com

    Did 5 wine tasting with Maximilian and Georg Riedel… completely amazing the difference between the glasses with the same wine. I got rid of all my INAO glasses !!!

    Thanks for this awesome episode!

    Cheers!

    first time watcher, pretty cool. like your enthusiasm.

    Never thought it would make that much of a difference, though I would think glass over plastic would.

    What did he say at the end?

    I find that a cheap pinot that I bought once actually tasted better out of the bottle. It was horrible out of a glass so I just drank it out of the bottle and it was pretty good. Tasted less artificial and had a good tight taste to it.

    Actually the only time I tried this experiement, I did not really see a difference.You will still like the Jets and become more cocky about it
