How To Hold A Wine Glass

Since today is NATIONAL WINE DAY, I thought we’d talk about the proper way to hold a wine glass…..

If you talk to any Master Sommeliers, they will tell you that there is only 1 way to hold a wine glass:

Hold the wine glass by the stem. Pinch the stem of the glass between your index finger and thumb.  NEVER hold the bowl of the glass because your body heat, or warmth from your hands, will warm the wine and change its ideal drinking temperature.

Also, if the glass is too heavy to balance/hold between your index finger and thumb, then the glass is overfilled.

Thanks for reading!
