Does this glass make my wine look fat?

  Does this glass make my wine look fat? Sometimes skinny can be too skinny? Sometimes skinny is not always a good thing. Exhibit A – Kirstie Alley trying to be skinny. Exhibit B – Kate Moss…any day. How about a skinny wine glass? I really didn’t think my wine glass needed to go on a diet, but according to Ravenscroft Crystal, “the wine glass should be invisible and not compete.

When you get 100 wineries, 300 wines and 400 people in a room for almost four hours, things can become a little fuzzy…not to mention a little warm and a lot crowded.

WAWine Wows the Wine World

For three hours on June 3, a little thing called Twitter brought thousands of wine lovers together for one purpose; celebrate Washington Wine. While #WAWine may not have been the largest of this year’s tasting events by volume of tweets or number of tweeters, it arguably propelled the largest amount of wineries and businesses into action. Twitter events are still in their infancy and range from specialized single winery […]
