Can the glass shape really make a difference?
Are there some physico-chemical factors to play some role here?
Why does it affect how wine smells and tastes?
What's the science behind glass shapes?

A lot of research has gone into the design of wine glasses. Several studies investigated the relationship between shape properties and taste & flavor.

It seems that if we wish to accentuate the wine tasting experience, then the glass shape does matter. Scientific research shows that the glass shape does have an impact upon the olfactory experiences of wines.

Constance, oenologist engineer will make us discover the impact of the shape of the glass on wine tasting. Passionate for more than 10 years, her more technical approach of wine will enable us to learn how to use the appropriate glasses according to the type of wine!

We'll taste 5 different Swiss wines, in different glasses.

Le vin est un produit vivant qui éveille tous les sens en dégustation. Les odeurs, les arômes, le goût et les textures paraissent différentes selon la forme du verre utilisée.
Constance, ingénieur Oenologue, nous fera découvrir l'impact de la forme du verre sur la dégustation de vin. Passionnée depuis plus de 10 ans, son approche plus technique du vin nous permettra d'apprendre à utiliser les verres adéquats selon les types de vin.
