Different glasses for red or white wine

Chew on That | Jun 11, 2008 10:20 AM

I was shopping for wine glasses for my boyfriend's apartment and noticed there were different glasses for red wines and white wines. The red wine glasses were fatter and shorter in the actual part that holds the wine, and the white wine were more narrow but taller.

Why are they served in different glasses? Does anyone know?
