I love red, so I would say red. But, whichever one you prefer to drink!

What about 4 of each?

Do you drink more red or more white? If I had to choose… I’d probably pick white, and include a decanter to breathe reds.

But I’ve also stuck ice cubes in my wine before (to the “horror” of my wine-afficianado friends), and I’ve served wine in jelly glasses. So take my advice with a grain of salt. 😉

I vote for white wine glasses (but i also love white wine more) maybe its where im from or my friends but no one has said anything if i serve white wine from a red glass or vise versa. I bought four of each on sale at target.

I believe they are white wine glasses…whichever ones are bigger. I prefer white to red, but I got the bigger ones because they hold more! I also got the stemless ones, since I tend to knock stuff over. I love them! I use them to drink everything out of, not just wine

Looking at your picture, we have the ones that are the second from the left, in the back. The oval ones, but stemless

Which are you more likely to drink/serve? The shape of the glass really does enhance the flavor of the wine. Red wine glasses allow for more of the wine’s surface to meet the air and breathe. This is important, in and of itself, as it helps with flavor and concentrating aromas. It’s even more important if you do not decant or aerate your red wine first. So if you drink red wine a fair amount and don’t decant or aerate it, definitely make sure to at least have the proper glass for it to compensate. But if red wine really isn’t your thing, don’t worry about it and get the white wine glasses instead.

@MrsSl82be: I love the stemless ones too! I also recently discovered they make excellent “fancy” juice glasses.

 

OP – I think I like the second from the left best. I don’t like the curve on the ones I’m assuming are white wine glasses. The other ones look more versatile.

@Garnety: I would get 8 of the one on the far left… It COULD be used to serve either white or red, but the one 2nd on the left would look funny serving white in it.

I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure the two on the left are both white wine glasses. I prefer the second on the left.
