Relaxing at the end of the day with a chilled dry French rosé during the hot summer months is pure bliss. The pink hue is feminine and flirty. It’s happiness in a glass, but did you know that there are wine glasses that are specifically designed for rosé? A rosé glass should have a diamond-like shape, a façade that helps increase the rate of alcohol’s evaporation, thus intensifying the aromas. Here are my favorite rosé wine glasses.
Riedel Extreme Rosé Wine Glasses
$60 for a set of 4
This glass is the perfect choice to reveal the bouquet and freshness of rosé wines and Champagnes. The shape directs the flow of wine onto the tip of the tongue, emphasizing the wine’s fresh fruitiness while tempering its high acidity and bringing out its characteristic red berry and pinewood aromas. As an added bonus, these Riedel rosé glasses are dishwasher safe making cleanup a breeze!
Schott Zwiesel Tritan Crystal Pure Stemware Collection
$50 for a set of 6
Have you ever broken your favorite wine glass? It’s a dreaded, but sometimes inevitable, occurrence in the stemware world. If you want a little peace of mind and some extra insurance against breakage, the Tritan glasses from Schott Zwiesel are the ones for you. The glass is enhanced with Titanium oxide and zirconium oxide so that they won’t break as easily. They’re also completely dishwasher safe.
Zalto Denk’Art Champagne/Rosé Glass
$118 for a set of 2
Here’s your high-end option for rosé stemware. Zalto is widely considered the gold standard of glassware by wine connoisseurs and professionals alike. It is made of mouth blown, nonleaded crystal; it’s incredibly light; and it’s shaped like a piece of art. The shape of the bowl was meticulously designed to bring out the best expressions of the grape. The lip is so thin it is as if nothing has come between you and your wine. Feather-light yet dishwasher safe.
