Balloon Wine Glass – Sagrada Familia
Out of stock
This wine glass has a particular large, almost balloon-shaped bowl. Thanks to its broad silhouette it helps the wine breath, it exposes the liquid to the air allowing it to oxidize and slightly changes its flavor for the better. The stem is strong and long, and it prevents the warmth of the drinker’s hand from interfering with the temperature of the wine. The capacity of this glass is of 21 oz, which offers plenty of room for the wine to spread out and maximize the oxygenation of it.
On the other hand, balloon glasses can be used for other drinks as well. In Spain they are typically used for Gin&Tonics, due that its shape helps to captivate the aromas of the gin and enhance its flavor. It also gives the gin a better taste and due to its broad bowl allows plenty of ice to be add in. The balloon shaped bowl is said to stop ice for melting as quickly and dilute the gin.
