Welcome to the forum. Glass is a difficult subject to photograph. Usually it's done in a controlled environment with light tents, lights and such. Your photo looks to be properly focused and sharp and well exposed. I can see using the angle you chose to overlap the glasses with the bottle and the countertop gives a nice reflection. A couple of things to consider. It would be nice to see all of the label. Turning it towards the camera might work but might not look quite right either. If you shot it straight on it would probably require re arranging the elements. I you find a photo that you like with this kind of subject analyze what they did, lighting, arrangement, etc any try to replicate it. The other thing I'll mention and why these are usually shot in a controlled setting are the busy highlights on the glass from the window lights. Usually you see glassware with long smooth highlights as they are more visually pleasing.
