Best Deals on Champagne Flutes

Updated on March 16, 2011

Champagne has long been considered a drink of the wealthy, but that is not the case anymore. Champagne is readily available in grocery stores and wine stores as well as convenience stores at gas stations. The traditional glass for drinking champagne is the champagne flute and there are a lot of varieties available today.

The shape of the Champagne flutes were made to keep the bubbles alive longer because there is less air on the surface and that means more bubbles stay alive longer, keeping the champagne sparkling. Air is minimized by the lips of the champagne flute which curve inward at the top keeping the air out and making it the glass of choice for champagne lovers. 8 inches is the ideal height of a champagne glass. This consists of a 4" bowl and a 4” stem and holds about 7 to 11 ounces of liquid. Some champagne flutes are made of leaded crystal or plain crystal and which is the best medium because it helps to enhance the sparkling bubbles in the champagne. Glass or colored glass can also be used and is usually cheaper in price but does not look as spectacular as crystal.

Formal occasions are a standard affair for serving champagne and nothing looks better to your guests than serving it in a champagne flute.

Nowadays champagne flutes come in many different styles.

Champagne flutes are often given as gifts for weddings, birthdays, and graduations.  If you are having such a celebration and want to serve champagne then maybe disposable is the right answer because buying 100 crystal champagne flutes would get quite expensive.  It is much cheaper for plastic and basically worry free if one should break.

Whatever your occasion there is a champagne flute.  Amazon is a great place to get a great deal on one but discount stores such as Marshall's and TJ Maxx are also great places to find a good deal.
