Wine Connoisseur: What is the proper way to hold a wine glass?

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 up the chilled wine.  Red wine glasses may be held by either the bowl or the stem.
