Much like a Burgundy glass, these glasses feature wider bowls that most types of red wine, however, pinot glasses tend to have a subtle flair of the rim in order to release the complex flavors and aromas of wine characteristics such as cherry, raspberry, wet leaves and mushrooms.
Pinot grapes are frequently grown all over the world and some varieties or mutations of this grape are easily grown over others. One example of this mutation is an anomaly with Pinot Noir where the vine will produce the dark black grape that it is known for except on one cane it will produce Pinot Blanc that has been historically blended in Burgundy and Champagne. Pinot Gris is also thought to be mutated from Pinot Noir grapes, but is a greyish blue color and produces clear juice.
