For unparalleled beauty and durability, look to Arc Cardinal. Featuring a diverse selection of stemware and stemless wine glasses, many of Arc Cardinal's glassware are made from fully tempered glass, Kwarx® or Krysta® for added strength. Pair that with a sheer rim for an upscale appearance and you've got a high-quality set of drinkware you can be confident will last. Whether you're shopping for a red wine glass, white wine glass, stemless wine glass and more, you'll find exactly what you need at Tundra Restaurant Supply.
Wine Glass Durability
Out of all of your Arc Cardinal glassware, stemware is obviously the most fragile. Long, slender stems paired with large bowls (great for red wines) means they can easily be knocked over and broken. That's why many of Arc Cardinal's lines are fully tempered or feature innovative Kwarx® or Krysta® materials.
When a wine glass is "fully tempered," it means that the glass has been processed differently to increase strength. Also, should a fully tempered glass break it will crumble into small pebbles versus splintered glass which is much more dangerous. Unlike its competitors, Arc Cardinal fully tempers the entire glass, not just the rim, so you get a stronger glass overall.
Kwarx® is a new material created by Arc Cardinal that adds strength and transparency to glassware. This material is stronger than fully tempered glass and ensures brilliant glassware through 2,000 commercial dishwashing cycles.
For the next generation of lead-free crystal, look to Krysta®. This high-performance crystal glass promises long-lasting brilliance, superior strength and complete transparency.
Difference Between Red Wine and White Wine Glasses
Most wine drinkers agree that red wine tastes better with age. Over time rough tannins slowly soften for a well-rounded mouth feel. That's why red wine glasses feature wide rims and large bowls which not only aerate the wine but it also lets the drinker fully appreciate its aromas.
Conversely, since most white wines are consumed almost immediately, white wine glasses are designed to be taller and more slender to minimize the wine's contact with air.
For added elegance, look for wine glasses with a sheer rim. Arc Cardinal features both red and white wine glasses alike with a sheer rim, which gives customers a better mouth feel and effortlessly enhances your presentation.
Sustainability and Your Wine Glasses
You may not realize it, but poor quality wine glasses that often break could be a real threat to your sustainability goals. Think about it: when your wine glasses break you need to order more, which puts added strain on virgin resources. Plus, once you factor in transportation by air or truck, you're looking at a lot of resources being used for regular glass replacement. Over time those costs (both environmental and monetary) add up. Don't be put off by a high initial cost for new glassware! You might find that investing in high quality glassware will save you big in the long term.
