Do Glasses Matter?

[Editorial]
It's an eternal question...does it matter what kind of glass you drink your wine from? The consensus from the experts is that it does matter a great deal. The shape of a glass can concentrate the aromas (which are so very vital to the wine's taste), and allow for the best air-surface-to-wine ratio. But how much does it matter?

A wine lover tries to answer this question by holding his own tasting using four different levels of glass, from jelly jar to Riedel's finest stemware. Check out his conclusions, complete with tasting notes for each individual glass.

You may or may not agree with his results, but wouldn't it be fun to try this kind of tasting at home and see what degree of difference you can detect for yourself? If the wrong glass can make a great wine taste bad, wouldn't you want to fix that, even if you just buy one glass for yourself?
