Background of the Champagne Flute
The champagne flute was developed along with other wine stemware in the early 1700s as the preferred shape for sparkling wine as materials for drinking vessels shifted from metal and ceramic to glassware. In the 18th century, the well-appointed English home included stemware made in England which produced fine glass known as “Flint” glass. Perhaps the family’s collection would have included glass champagne flutes. This English glass was acclaimed in Europe for its clarity and beauty. It tended to be slightly heavier than other European glass and sought to imitate rock crystal which is why we now use the word “crystal” for fine glassware.
