2. Red wine (Bordeaux).
3. Burgundy, Chardonnay.
4. Glass for the sweet wine (like Sauternes or Muscat).
5. Glass for Sauvignon.

And most importantly – they must be scrubbed to a shine and creaking. Otherwise, you can spoil all the fun. Wine glasses should be perfectly crystal and crunch on the purity.
Worthy wines should be only in a glass bottle, the dispute cannot be. If you want to bring a wine from the long journey, you should take care about fragile glass.

There are special gadgets for friendship wine with oxygen – aerators (Vinturi Essential Wine Aerator).
Real gourmets take care of the quality of remaining wine in an unfinished bottle. Pour the wine in a special container to store (Metrokane Velvet Champagne and Wine Sealer) to preserve its entire flavor and aroma. Even after a couple of weeks it will be identical to the first glass of uncorked bottles. Variant easier – special vacuum corks that closes an opened bottle (Wine Bottle Stoppers). Not quite what we need, but some days the wine will be at the peak of their potential.
