1. Types of glasses
There are several types of glasses that can be used to drink wine. Generally, the glass used to drink white wine is a long glass with a stem underneath. Just hold the stem without touching the body of the glass as this will affect the temperature of the wine to be drunk.

2. Rotate the glass
Before drinking wine, first, turn the glass slowly to bring out the distinctive aroma of the wine. But keep in mind, not all types of wine must be rotated before drinking. For sparkling wine using a tall glass, you don’t need to rotate it because there is foam in it
3. Smell the aroma
For the perfect taste, take a deep breath of the wine’s aroma. The aroma of each type of wine will affect the quality of the wine you drink. If the aroma of alcohol is more dominant, then the quality of the wine has decreased
