1/8/2016 – You state in a previous FAQ that the Bordeaux style bottles do not have a punt. Yet, the photo shows a punt. Which is correct, the photo or your description?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The previous questions were from 2003 and 2004. We had flat bottom bottles at that time. Bottle suppliers come and go in 13 years. Which do we have NOW? It would be best to call us to verify. Ph 425-355-8865 and we will take a look. Sometimes we even have both.Sorry for the vague response, but it is 6am on Saturday morning and I am . . .

6/10/2005 – Which color bottles are meant for which types of wines? I'm making Piesporter, Chardonnay, Zynfandel Merlo. Obviously only one red wine. Which bottles do I use for which?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Typically, or maybe I should say traditionally, whites are bottled in clear or brown bottles, and reds go in green ones. This is NOT to say that you have to. There is not a functional difference as far as wine quality. It's your choice.
7/4/2004 – The convenience of screw top bottles seems like a major advantage for home made wine.I only see on 0.750 liter screw top bottle in your catalog at a cost per bottle equal to the cost per case for corked bottles! Yikes! Is the listed price really per bottle and not per case. If so, is there no other alternative for this simple solution.Thanks.PS . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, the cost is per case, and is the same for either screw top or corkable bottles. We don't sell individual bottles.Thanks for your order!
1/31/2004 – Why do home wine making bottles have flat bottoms while all commercial wine bottles have punts? Is there any advantage to using bottles with punts?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not all do.Punts were originally used to "catch" the sediment (more surface area), but my opinion is that there should not be any sediment in the first place. Modern clarifiers and filters make a punt unnecessary. They are much heavier bottles, also, and shipping cost is an issue.
6/30/2003 – Is the $15.95 price per case or per bottle?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Per case. 12 bottles in a case.
