The Bordeaux

The Glass4ever 40 cl wine glass is shaped like a typical Bordeaux glass: tall with a broad bowl, and is designed for full bodied red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.

Did you know that the effect of glass shape on the taste of wine has not been demonstrated by any scientific study and remains controversial. It is however believed by some that the shape of the glass is important, as it concentrates the flavor and aroma (or bouquet) to emphasize the varietal’s characteristic. One common belief is that the shape of the glass directs the wine itself into the best area of the mouth from the varietal. This is based on ideas about the nature of taste buds on the tongue.

Controversial or not, at the end of the day it is about catering for the needs of the guests and providing the right customer experience, catering for not just the taste buds but for all the 5 senses.

The Glass4ever wine glass is designed to look and feel like a wine glass and to be used in the most common situations – Typically where a real glass is not practical. It is designed to appear fragile yet still retains the unbreakable properties of polycarbonate.
