Ok, I stole this from the link listed below, so you can tell your friends that they are affecting how the tastes when they serve it in a non-wine glass!!:

Quote:
Sources as varied as the University of Tennessee and the Wall Street Journal (November 18, 1999) among others, have reported that the shape of a wineglass can have an effect on various chemicals found in wine that affect taste.

It does this apparently, by controlling the amount of wine surface area that is exposed to the air. The size of the bowl determines how much or how little liquid can be swirled, which affects the exposure. The shape and thickness of the rim directs the wine to specific parts of the tongue with different taste sensitivities. Finally, the diameter of the opening concentrates or expands the rising aroma or bouquet.

Oh I so agree with you on this one...I have been know to bring a set of wine glasses (Walmart) along with the bottle of wine when we're going somewhere that I know I'll be getting in a jelly jar if I didn't.


HAHAHA! Now I've just got to know, when did you go and visit my relatives?! Laughing

Yeah, I'm the same way though - I just bought a set of red wine glasses about a month ago (different than white wine ones!) and while I can't tell the difference in taste, it makes me feel more fancy AND as a bonus - it's bigger than the white wine glass - so more hooch goes in! Very Happy Very Happy

LOL Joy,

You do know that you should only fill a red wine glass up to just under the 1/2 way point, the rest of the space is to swirl the glass and allow airation. Wink

LOL, I am laughing at the wine glass thing.....I do own about a dozen, but I was helping my Dad put together the grill in my garage on Sunday...and I HAD to have my wine...but did not want to break a glass on the concrete floor. I was drinking cab out of a plastic cup left over from a Ranger's Baseball game.

I don't think my father nor my new neighbor who stopped by even noticed I was drinking wine.

Does that make me an alcholic or just sneaky??? Razz

LOL Good news Joy, I have seen some extreamly LARGE red wine glasses. If you can't find those, well dosn't a goldfish bowl have a simular shape.......



Kathy, you're only an alcoholic if you go to 12 step meetings, otherwise you're just a drunk like us! Cool

In my younger days (as in my 20s)... when I was young and foolish (OK, that was only a couple of years ago)

I use to partake of the Mountain Chablis by Chateau du Box... Sipped ever so regally..... from a coffee mug!! <sigh>

What do you mean "younger days", I've had wine IN A COFFEE MUG, and that was at YOUR PLACE! Razz Can't remember why, were the glasses all dirty, or were we too lazy to get up and get real glasses??
