Why Different Wine Calls for Different Glasses – And Why You Don’t Need Them All
“The world of wine glasses can seem intimidating,” acknowledges Gabe Geller, a top sommelier and Director of Public Relations for Royal Wine. “The varieties are endless. The truth is, it can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be.”
Rosés can be served in white wine glasses because the two are produced similarly. But, says Geller, there are glasses made specifically for rosés. They have shorter bowls that are slightly tapered and sometimes have a flared rim. “The rim affects the way you sip,” he explains. “The flair helps direct the wine directly to the tip of the tongue.”
Before you go online for a wine glass spending spree, Geller adds, “A good universal wine glass is perfectly suitable for anything, from your summer afternoon Roman Cardova Rosado to a vintage Bordeaux such as Baron de Rothchild Haut-Medoc.”

Roller Coaster Fanatics Hail New RailBlazer Ride
The design requires the rider to straddle the rail, creating an extremely low center of gravity that amplifies every move and enables more dynamic turns and rotations than have ever been possible on a coaster. With an eight-passenger single file train hugging the rail, riders will speed smoothly over the twisting track as they experience an abundance of airtime and steeply banked turns.
Features of the ride include: a maximum height of 106 feet, a 90-degree, face-down first drop, over 1,800 feet of track, a top speed of 52 miles per hour and three inversions, including a zero-gravity roll.
