Are you clinking wine glasses the right way? Here's how to do it “properly”

by , 30 October 2014

Chances are even as a toddler you were clinking your plastic tea cups. As you've grown up over the years, a wine glass has replaced your plastic tea cup.

But did you know there's actually a correct way to clink wine glasses? And that doing it wrong can have embarrassing consequences?

So are you clinking wine glasses right?

Read on to find out…

The ‘wrong’ way to clink wine glasses

When it comes to clinking wine glasses, there are definitely right and wrong ways.

The worst way to clink wine glasses it to clink the top of the glasses together. This could lead to two things happening:

  • First, the wine is more inclined to slosh out of the glass.
  • And second, the top of the wine glass is the most fragile part. Clinking this part means the glass can break. So there’s a good chance you’ll end up with a broken glass and wine everywhere.

This may sound like taking your wine experience a little too far, but if you’re using expensive wine glasses and/or drinking expensive wine, it makes a lot of sense.

Clinking the right way also makes a lovely sound, especially if you’re drinking from crystal wine glasses.

The best way to clink wine glasses

To avoid any spillage and breakage, the best way to clink wine glasses is the ‘bell to bell’ method, Madeline Puckette in Wine Folly explains.

This technique involves aiming the large round part of your wine glass (the bell) to the same part of your clinking partner’s wine glass. You want to angle the rim of the glass away slightly from the other glass.

Done correctly, this gives a lovely ding sound. And since you’re clinking the strongest part of the glass, chances are there isn’t going to be any breakage or spillage either.

So there you have it. How to clink wine glasses the ‘proper’ way.
