What Size Is a Sherry Glass?

A sherry glass is one of the smaller wine glasses, large enough to hold 2 ounces of port, layered shooter or liqueur. The taper on the glass is narrower than the taper on many of the larger wine glasses.

The Spanish copita is one of the most popular versions of the sherry glass. Standing about 6 inches high, this glass enhances the bouquet of the drink, allowing the imbiber to drink in the aroma of the liqueur or sherry just as deeply as he drinks in the flavor of the drink. Other aperitifs also go well in this compact glass.
