There are three parts to the wine glass. The glass stemware consists of the bowl, stem, and foot. The bowl is designed to let the wine breathe and expand on the flavor. The stem is for holding the glass. It is believed important not to hold the glass by the bowl as the temperature would change the true flavor of the wine. The foot is used for stability and allows the glass to rest safely.

Design

Wine glasses are designed by glass blowers using various methods to shape the bowl. The art is breathtaking and often the artist uses lead crystal it gives the glass a higher quality. The light refraction from changing the angles of the cuts of glass are an aesthetic design and make the glass more sought after. Air bubbles are sometimes added in a design called airtwist. The lead crystal is deemed important in giving the glass an ability to allow the wine to breathe. The higher the refraction of light on the glass leads to a more appealing design. The ISO of wine tasting has an particular size and shape it requires. The fine colorless crystal is rounded in shape with a tapered top. This allows the vapors to escape while allowing the wine to breathe.

Collectors seek out the beautiful glasses to add to their collections for historical value as well as beautification value. The wine glass is noted in biblical times as a chalice. Kings and Queens raise wine glasses in toast to honor guest during historical events. Tying in the historical event with a wine glass give it extenuating value and documentation is key.
