Why is red wine served in a large glass?

Red Wine Glasses This is because red wines will typically have bolder tasting notes and benefit from being able to “breath more” than their white wine counterparts. The larger bowled glasses allow the red wine to come into contact with more air, helping them to open up and display more aromas and tasting notes.

Is a red wine glass bigger than white?

White wine glasses are generally smaller than red wine glasses. This shape preserves floral aromas and helps maintain a cooler temperature. Full-bodied whites like Chardonnay are served in a glass with a bowl that is smaller than a red wine glass but larger than a light-bodied white wine glass.
