There’s a time and a place for a Champagne flute, and there’s a million more for a Prosecco glass.
Any time beyond New Years Eve or homebound Grammy-watching parties, a Champagne flute can seem a little out of place. Even when making traditional mimosas at home, a flute can come in handy when you’re working with Champagne — but what about Prosecco?
The cold, hard truth is that Prosecco deserves its own glass. Enter one of VinePair’s favorite options, the Spiegelau Prosecco Glass. Unlike a traditional flute, a Prosecco glass is made with a rounder base and body to enhance the texture and aromas in this famous sparkling wine.
Narrow Champagne flutes are designed to minimize the wine’s actual surface area, so your bubbles have less room to fizzle out. Similarly, this Prosecco glass will preserve your wine’s carbonation, but the rounded body makes it more suited for tasting.
With more room to breathe, your Prosecco will be able to open up and really bloom, so you can catch every aroma and flavor in your wine. This is important because one of the reasons why so many pros love Prosecco is because it’s made with highly aromatic grapes.
These glasses are also great for Bellinis, which are similar to a mimosa but traditionally made with Prosecco — not Champagne. With plenty of room for plenty of bubbles and sweet peach purée, these glasses will elevate your next Brunch and ensure your guests taste all the right flavors in their cocktail.
Plus, they’re made with lead-free crystal in Germany and are certified dishwasher safe, so cleanup will be a breeze. All in all, if you love Prosecco you better act fast because these glasses are sure to sell out soon.
