Texture brings the critical element of touch into the wine-drinking experience. Unlike traditional glassware that concentrates on the grape and the shape, the Roberts Supertaster Series focuses on heightening the perception—and pleasure—of the wine consumer through the sense of touch.
By adding textural elements near the rim of the glasses, Roberts' stemware incorporates lessons learned about glass shape with an understanding of the body’s taste mechanism. Studies show that saliva is needed to process and register flavor. The texture excites neural receptors in the tongue and lips, driving salivary secretions. The result: an awakening of the palate for enhanced taste awareness.
When your lips and tongue move over the Taste Stimulating Textures™, touch receptors send a message to the part of the brain that initiates salivation, triggers other senses and enables the taste process. Without touch to drive the saliva and enzymes needed to begin the digestive process, there is no taste. When coupled with smell, the touch stimuli awaken other sense receptors and as a result the taste process is more acute and deeply more pleasurable.Be sure to check out our entire selection of Rolf Glass products.
