“Our Flavor First® Collection is the next step forward in wine glass evolution. It’s based on the simplest realization of all— that flavor is what matters most. You know the kinds of wine flavors you like. We know how to design wine glasses based on flavor. The result is our Flavor First® Collection—the first wine glasses that make finding the optimal wine glass easy. We think choosing the right wine glasses should be as simple as drinking the wine itself. Cheers!”

The sediment in a bottle of 1996 Bordeaux is probably:
A. Color pigment and tannin dropping out of solution.
B. Tiny pieces of disintegrating cork.
C. Tartrate crystals and other acids dropping out of solution.
D. Alcohol dropping out of solution.
FORM FOLLOWS FLAVOR. Flavor First® Stemware focuses on flavor itself. Grouping similar flavor profiles together and creating the form factors required to experience them will naturally distill the number of shapes required to deliver a given flavor profile. White or red, clear or amber, it’s all flavor. Advantages are universal for the operator, the guest, and the Brand.
The Flavor First® Collection is ………
Designed around shared flavor profiles, instead of the type of drink, which means an enhanced drinking experience and only a few shapes to manage behind the bar. Designed in partnership with who knows flavor profiles best - Karen MacNeil
The Flavor First® Collection will…..
Simplify your business practices of managing too many different glasses, it will reduce the number of glasses you thought you needed
With an optimal line up of glassware restaurant operators can focus more on executing the best possible flavor experience
"Flavor First® glasses simplify the complex world of stemware. By focusing on flavor, these three shapes maximize the enjoyment of just about any kind of wine you like to drink. The shapes are precisely designed to enhance wines that are Crisp & Fresh®, Creamy & Silky® and Bold & Powerful®.”
