WHITE WINE GOBLETS
White wine glasses have a narrow, tapered shape, reminiscent of sparkling wine glasses. Remember to hold them by the long stem so as not to let the wine get too hot: white wine should be served cold. The white wine glass also has a small capacity: the less you pour, the less likely it is to heat up.
When setting a table for special festive occasions, the arrangement of wine glasses – as well as cutlery – is very precise. They should be placed above the knives, which in turn should be placed to the right of the cover. According to table etiquette, the water glass should be placed all the way to the right above the cutlery, to the left of which is a white wine glass and next to it a red wine glass. There is a rule imposing a maximum of 5 glasses which would be: 1 for water, 2 for red wine and 2 for white wine.
So that you can enjoy your precious wine glasses for a long time to come, clean them carefully after use. In the case of fine wine glasses, hand washing is always the best choice. By putting them in the dishwasher you run a big risk, despite the fact that the glasses are indicated as dishwasher-safe. With mechanical cleaning, the very thin crystal could break.
For hand washing, we recommend lukewarm water and a mild detergent. Too aggressive substances can damage the surface of your precious wine glasses. For this reason, it is also better to avoid rubbing valuable glasses with force. Carefully dip them into the water and pull them out slowly.
It is advisable to use a cotton cloth for drying, as it releases those annoying ‘lint’ that sticks to the glass and makes it difficult to keep the glass clean.
If you have a good wine, use a good goblet, don’t keep them hidden for fear of breaking them. Put them on the table and enjoy the effect they have!
