Many years ago, wine producers in Europe created wine bottles that were unique to their growing area.
Traditionally, the high shouldered Bordeaux bottle shape was used to hold the wines that were produced in that region; and the same is true of the sloped shouldered Burgundy shape.
The tall Hotch (Hock) shape was used in Germany.
As wine spread throughout the world, vintners continued the use of these shapes to market similar varietals.
While there are many other shapes for unique or special wines, these three shapes cover the vast majority of wines sold today.
