How many different types of wine glasses does a person need?
The folks that make the fancy glasses like Riedel and Spiegelau have a wine glass for every type of wine imaginable. But who has storage space for all of those different glasses, and wouldn’t you rather spend your money on wine instead of all of those glasses?!
I say four different shapes should be sufficient for anyone:
1.) A fancy glass for white wines
2.) A fancy glass for red wines
3.) A Champagne glass
4.) A good old all-purpose wine glass
Obviously, it’s up to you to determine how many of each of these you’ll need. You will need to factor in how often and the size of the group that you typically entertain.
