Wine Bottle Base Hole Denoting Wine Quality?
by Paul Cachia
Hi - Is it true that the deeper the hole on the base of the actual bottle does suggest that the quality of the wine is excellent.
When I do purchase reds, I always now turn the bottle upside down and if the hole is deep rather than shallow, I always tend to pick on that particular wine. Up till now I have never been disappointed. I have about 300 bottles of different reds and the best wines do come with this particular shaped glass.
Can you advise whether this is true as I am having problems relaying this method of selecting top wines to my friends.
I'll answer as a comment to this page. I'm sure others will have an opinion about the "punt" as well.
