White Wine Glasses

For casual tastings at home, buy the all-purpose International Standards Organization-approved glasses you see in wineries, advises Ritchie. For better wines, however, Richie says the glass makes a difference.

$300: Riedel 12.3 oz. Vinum Chardonnay/Chablis Wine. Lead crystal made in Austria, six sets of two glasses each, at $49.99 per pair -- winestuff.com

Specialized glasses for more casual tastings:

$67: Fusion Classic Chardonnay, 15 oz., set of six -- wineenthusiast.com

$30: Sauvignon Blanc Riesling White Wine Glasses 12 oz., set of four from Ravenscroft R. Croft Collection -- barware.com

Running tally: $4,785
