White Wine Glass
Liana Beer

A glass designed to keep the user’s hand away from the bowl of the glass to prevent body heat from transferring to the white wine, which is intended to be chilled. A hollow lower region creates a barrier while being held by the user, as well as creating an illusion of suspension for the white wine. The narrow design with a slight, inward curve enables the gathering and focusing of aromas.
