Wine glasses could be the topic of a separate article because there are so many shapes available and many have been developed for a particular style of wine. The basics that a bartender needs to be concerned with is that (typically) the taller, more open glasses like the one on the left above are used for white wines, while those with a rounder, smaller bowl (on the right) are used for red wines.

Wine glasses of any style are nice for serving wine cocktails, those with ice are often best in the larger glasses.
