A deep indentation found in the bottom of many wine bottles. The earliest origins of the punt are lost to us but punts are believed to be for strength of the bottom of the bottle (especially with sparkling wine) or in order to form a stable (non-rocking) bottom in the hand-blown bottles. Whatever the beginnings, a punt is unnecessary today and is used as a marketing tool. Modern glass technology allows bottles to be made that do not require a punt for strength or stability. Many consumers view wines in punt bottles to be of higher quality than those in bottles without punts.
The optional indentation found in the base of a wine bottle. Although various reasons are given for its existence, such as "to collect sediment" or "to handle better," the punt is a vestige of manufacture rather than usage. The original hand-made bottles would be round-bottomed with a slight peak at the separation point from the molten glass, unless the glass blower would push-up the base to inset this bump and form a relatively flat, ring-shaped base. Modern molded-glass bottles can be made flat-bottomed or with various-sized punts. The common consumer impression that punt depth relates to wine quality, but this can be very misleading. [ edit
