1 Mediterranean Wine Glasses

No home bar or bar cart can ever be fully stocked without a good wine glass selection. Wine and beer are often the beverage of choice, so wine glasses and beer glasses should be your first barware purchase. If you have the staples and are looking to expand your collection, cocktail glasses, highball glasses and old-fashioned glasses are a popular next step. For those special occasion drinks, be sure to have margarita glasses, martini glasses and champagne glasses on hand as well. More

As you fully stock your bar, be sure this consider these helpful tips.

What kind of wine glass should I buy?


If you're a casual wine drinker, you will easily be able to get by with just a standard wine glass set. This is the most affordable option, since they can be found in any store and can be used for a wide variety of drinks. If you are a serious wine drinker, you'll want to expand your collection with more specific purchases. Other wine glass types include flute, tulip, coupe, hock and tumbler; the type of glassware you purchase largely depends on whether you drink red, white, dessert or sparkling wine. Consider what type you find yourself drawn to, and base your purchases on your drink of choice.

What other barware do I need?


Any good collection includes cocktail glasses, beer glasses, shot glasses and highball glasses, since those are commonly used and cover all the beverage bases. To specialize, try including martini glasses, margarita glasses and pilsner glasses as well. Glass barware is the preferred option, though if you frequently entertain, you might also consider having some crystal barware on hand for more formal events.
