Question & Answer - Glassware
Ask the expert
Are my glasses dishwasher safe?
Yes, all Salute glasses are dishwasher safe. We recommend that you always place these in the top rack of your dishwasher.
Why are red and white wine glasses different sizes?
Wine glasses are made to different sizes and proportions according to grape type. This helps to enhance the characteristics of the wine and achieve maximum enjoyment. Typically, red wine is heavier bodied with a fuller aroma which requires greater aeration, hence the bowl of red wine glasses are larger to allow for greater oxygenation.
How do I look after my glasses?
Avoid carrying glassware by the rim or foot. Be careful to minimise knocks and bumps which cause chips as these dramatically weaken the strength of your glasses. Store upright in a dry cupboard.
