Have you ever wondered about the shapes of wine bottles? Are the different shapes random happenstance or are they part of a great plan? Believe it or not, the shapes of wine bottles are actually well calculated to match the styles of specific wines. If you love burgundy wine, then your bottle type has sloping shoulders and a tall appearance or if you love bordeaux, then your bottle type has straight sides and high shoulders.
This little bit of trivia can give you ease in spotting your preferred bottle…which can come in handy the next time you and your fellow wine shopper are both going for that last bottle of bordeaux!
