By the Glass: How to hold your wine

by epi on February 7, 2013

Q: What is the proper way to hold a wine glass: by the bowl or by the stem?

A: White wine glasses are held by the stem so the warmth of the hand does not heat the chill of the wine. Red wine glasses may be held by either the bowl or the stem.

From restaurant experts I have learned that every glass that has a stem is held by the stem.
