Port wine glass

Typical glass shape with a tulip-shaped goblet tapering upwards to concentrate the aromas of port wine on the nose. It strongly resembles a sherry glass (see under Catavino) or other dessert wine glasses. It is (due to the higher alcohol content of a port wine) with a volume of only 80 to 140 ml significantly smaller than a normal wine glass and is also only half filled.

Trinkgläser: Portwein, Sherry, Grappa, Rotwein

Increasingly, however, a form similar to grappa glass is being used for red port wine, in which the goblet widens slightly towards the top and the larger liquid surface allows the aromas to unfold better. See also under wine glasses, wine vessels and wine enjoyment.
