Choosing the right glass

Rotkäppchen is best enjoyed in the right kind of glass. Sparkling wine is generally served in narrow, tall flutes or glasses that are slightly balloon-shaped or tulip-shaped. Thin-walled, narrow glasses best encourage its full bouquet to develop.

Glasses that have a rough area in the base of the bowl, known as a ‘sparkling point’, are ideal. The rough area enables chains of small bubbles to form and rise up to the surface.

Our tip

To ensure that the beading is not affected, you should avoid washing the glasses in detergent, and you shouldn’t polish them until you are about to use them.

Sparkling wine glasses should be washed in clean, hot water and dried with a soft cloth. You can clink glasses to toast, but do it carefully so that no bubbles escape.
