Which glasses to you use for drinking port?

I'm not sure if it matters.


Answer by  NelsonCB (20)

Due to the fact that port is a red wine, it should be served in a wide open glass that allows the wine to breathe. However, the white variety, considered a dessert wine, could be served in a narrow mouthed glass.

They sell actual port glasses if you are intending to entertain guest and serve port. Honestly, I do not own a set of these glasses, and tend to use either a brandy sifter or regular wine glass filled half way to allow the port to breathe. If you fill the glass too much, you can change the taste, not pleasant.

A crystal port wine glass that is simplistic and without design works best to allow the aroma to arouse your senses.
