When you're serving champagne or any sparkling wine, it really needs to be served in a champagne flute for the right effect. This tall stem glass with a narrow bowl and small opening is designed this way to keep the effervescence from dissipating too quickly. Usually this glass holds about 6 ounces, which is the perfect size to fill up your glass.
Of course you can't go wrong with serving champagne or sparkling wine in a champagne flute, however if you want to use them for something else as well, then a wine spritzer is also a good idea. When using this type of glass, you want to make sure you hold the glass by its stem and not by the bowl, that way it will stay colder longer.
There are many different kinds of champagne flutes available to buy in stores. We prefer those glasses that are very simple and unadorned. The only negative aspect about fine champagne flutes is that they can be very delicate so great caution has to be taken when they are washed and handled.
