"Hock is a British term for German white wine; sometimes it refers to white wine from the Rhine region (specifically Riesling) and sometimes to all German white wine. The word hock is short for the obsolete word hockamore, an alteration of "Hochheimer", derived from the name of the town of Hochheim am Main in Germany."..."but you can use this glass for any young, sweet wine. It's a model of wine glass engineering because its shape puts the wine on specific taste buds on your tongue, letting you taste its sweetness."
