Does wine taste different in plastic vs glass?

Yes, whatever glass you drink wine from this will change the taste of the wine. Plastic used to make wine glasses is porous and obviously contains chemicals used to form the polymer plastic material. Glass has this oppsite effect, it’s non porous characteristic allows the the glass to serve as a vessel in which the wine cannot be changed.

Can wine glasses be recycled?

The short answer to this would be, yes! Our fluted short stemmed wine glass would be the perfect choice if you were looking for a recyclable disposable plastic wine glass choice. They’re sturdy, elegant, and perfect for one time use to be recylced and go perfect with our plastic champagne flutes.

What are the different types of stemware wine glasses?

Along with wine glasses, there are a mulitued of different glasses for different alocholic beverages. From champagne glasses, to tumlers and cocktail glasses we a disposable option for every glass.

The original wine glass, stems from 1400s thought to have originated from Venice, Italy where glass blowing art was at his peak. The shape you see in wine glasses that you see today are there to attack the senses.

The wine glass consists of four pieces, the rim, the bowl, stem and base or foot (althought the latter two do not count when it comes to stemless wine glasses). The rim of a wine glass allows the wine to flow of the toungue and tastebuds, allowing us to taste the grape. The bowl is the part in which the wine sits and projects the aromas found when you smell the wine. The stem of the wine glass is important for holding the glass and allowing the best part of the hand to restrict touching the bowl of the glass and warming up the chilled wine (white or rose), this is not necessarily the case when it comes to red wine which is drunk at an ambient temperature. The base or foot, allows you to keep the wine glass upright.

The size of the wine glass is depended on the type of wine being consumed as we know, wine isn’t one dimensional, requires multiple senses to be able to enjoy wines at their full potential. A white or rose wine glass is small in size in comparison to the red wine glass which is significantly larger. The smallest wine glass is usually save for dessert wines which are sweet in flavour and tend to be enjoyed at the table with the pudding or dessert course.

Most glasses take the shape of a wine glass, however they’re appearence ever so slightly altered to suit the drink. For instance, the champagne glass, is longer and narrower than a wine glass to allow the bubbles to stay for longer. A pint glass, half pint, or tumbler is slightly different in comparison to the wine glass, it takes on a conical shape, allowing for more beer.

What is the difference between acrylic glass and plastic wine glasses?

Acrylic glass is known for its extreme durability, able to withstand drops onto hard flooring without shattering like original wine glasses. Acrylic is a popular plastic commonly used to make plastic disposables due to it’s cost effectiveness. Acrylic is cheaper to manufacture on mold than glass or polycarbonate.

Acrylic comes from the term acrylonitrile and derives from natural gasses. It’s a thermplastic which is predominately petroleom based. Acrylic is used as a multiuse material, from paint to plastic and even found in fabrics. When comparing acrylic wine glasses to plastic wine glasses, the acrylic is more durable against scratches and scrapes. The best thing about acrylic plastic is that it’s recyclable!

The other option to acrylic is polycarbonate plastic,

Plastic wine glasses such as polycarbonate are 30 times stronger acrylic, hence why a lot of disposable plastic wine glasses are made from polycarbonate.
