Glass Type: Goblet
Glassware Information  
A goblet (or chalice) is a large, stemmed, bowl-shaped glass. The distinction between goblet and chalice is typically in the glass thickness. Goblets tend to be more delicate and thin, while the chalice is heavy and thick walled. Some chalices are even etched on the bottom to attract carbon dioxide and provide a stream of bubbles for maintaining a nice head.
