Of The Jancis Robinson Wine Glass, Jancis says: “I was looking for the perfect wine glass, I love white wine as much as red and have never understood why white wine glasses are routinely smaller than those designed for red wine. White wines can be just as complex, and just as deserving of what you might call aroma enhancement as reds.” At the heart of the collection is the aptly named Wine Glass, which has been specifically designed to offer the best-tasting experience for every wine, whatever its style or strength – from Kabinett to TBA, Champagne to sherry, Pinot, port and beyond.
There are many reasons to buy these glasses. To me. they are beautiful. The shape looks amazing on the table and the footprint is quite modest. Which is important if you are sharing the dinner table space with more glasses, decanters, plates, platters etc. But ultimately the show wine brilliantly. The bowl enhances the aromas and they are lovely to drink from. The way the glasses deliver the wine to your palate accentuates the mid-palate flavours and lets the wine spread across your tongue.
If you have invested in great wine, you need to show it in the best possible glassware. Jancis Robinson has created that glassware for you.

The glasses are light and perfectly balanced, with a particularly fine rim. Therefore minimising the amount of glass that comes between wine and palate.
The glass ensures that each piece is light, ultra-fine and durable against clouding.
The master craftspeople who meticulously hand-make each piece are among the most skilled glassblowers in the world.
A 125ml pour comes to the widest point of the bowl, maximising the release of the all-important aromas.
The Wine Glass will fit easily into domestic and commercial machines. In addition, its sturdy stem minimises the likelihood of breakages.
