WINE BOTTLE SHAPES

Updated: May 25, 2018

Wine bottle shapes are not just decorative, they perform specific functions based on the wine type.





HIGH SHOULDERS

A Cabernet Sauvignon in a Bordeaux bottle, which is a French region where the grape is grown.



TALL & SKINNY

Floral aromatic wines such as Alsatian, Gewurztraminer and Riesling.



CHUBBY & STURDY

Champagne bottles are chubby and sturdier to hold the contents under pressure.



SLOPING SHOULDERS

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are from France's Burgandy region which is where these varietals are grown.
