This topic has been requested by you guys and it is something I wanted to do for a while. I am going to talk about the most important tool when it comes to wine: wine glasses AND I am going to do a blind tasting to find out which glass is the best! First of all HELLO to all of the new faces. The world of wine is filled with glass but this was not always the case. The first evidence of wine production is nine thousand years old but wine glasses only started to become popular a few hundred years ago. Drinking glasses are made from Silica – the main constituent of sand. Remember the fact that wine glasses and wine bottles are made from the main compound of several minerals when someone talks about the minerality of a wine … but that’s a different story. Before the introduction of industrial glass making wine was consumed from a variety of vessels like this Cow Horn for example or silver cups. The English Businessman George Ravenscroft was the first to produce clear crystal glassware on an industrial scale. Those first glasses were produced from lead crystal. Due to health concerns lead crystal is rarely used today and the lead is substituted by barium oxide, zinc oxide, or potassium oxide.
