I am a nut for glassware. It is just something that I can’t resist: glasses, vases, pitchers, bottles – all sorts of bottles. In fact, it can be quite dangerous leaving me alone in the liquor department of any store because I am liable to buy something that I won’t even drink just for the bottle. Have you seen those clear glass skulls full of vodka? But I digress.
So, when Wine Enthusiast contacted me asking if they could send me some wine glasses (Could they? Oh, yes!), I reeled in my excitement long enough to reply in the affirmative, and happily received a lovely set of four Fusion Whirl Chardonnay Wine Glasses. Designed with the physics of fluid dynamics in mind, they tapered the bowls so the opening is narrower at the top than below, allowing for an aggressive swirl that funnels a virtual explosion of aroma directly to the nose, and, they are gorgeous! Needing to be displayed in a table setting, I chose to blow the dust off of my Nikko tea rose dishes and pair them with other pieces featuring spring colors (It is spring, isn’t it? Try not to notice the 11 inches of snow on the deck). As you can see, I am still rockin’ that beautiful blue Hydrangea as a centerpiece. Now excuse me while I pour the wine.
