Four Things You Should Never Do to Your Wine Glass

Wine enthusiasts know that the experience of enjoying a fine wine goes beyond the taste – it involves the aroma, the colour, and yes, even the glass from which it is sipped. Whether you're new to the world of wine or a seasoned connoisseur, maintaining the integrity of your wine glass is crucial. Here are four things you should never do to your wine glass.


1. Using Soap to Clean Your Wine Glasses


While it might seem obvious to use soap for cleaning, this can actually leave a residue that interferes with the taste and aroma of your wine. Instead, rinse your wine glasses with hot water immediately after use. For stubborn stains, a mixture of white vinegar and water will do the trick without leaving any lingering soapy taste.


2. Putting Wine Glasses in the Dishwasher


The convenience of a dishwasher is tempting, but it's best to avoid using it for your delicate wine glasses. The intense heat and harsh detergents can weaken the glass and cause etching. Hand-washing your wine glasses ensures they remain in pristine condition.


Pro Tip:

When washing by hand, use a soft cloth or sponge and gently scrub. Avoid using abrasive cleaners.


3. Holding the Bowl of the Glass


One common mistake is holding the bowl of the wine glass instead of the stem. Holding the bowl transfers heat from your hand to the wine, altering its ideal serving temperature. Always hold your wine glass by the stem to maintain the wine's temperature and enjoy it as the winemaker intended.


4. Storing Wine Glasses Upside Down


Storing wine glasses upside down might seem like a good idea to keep dust out, but it can actually cause damage. The rims of wine glasses are delicate and can chip easily when pressure is applied. Store them upright in a secure, dust-free cabinet to keep them safe and in perfect condition.




Proper care of your wine glasses enhances your overall wine-drinking experience. By avoiding these common mistakes, you'll ensure that each sip of wine remains as delightful as the winemaker intended.
