Punt in a wine bottle
Have you ever taken notice of those round indentations on the bottom of wine bottles? They are called punts and were historically added by glassblowers to make bottles stronger. They also help with keeping bottles upright and keeping them from tipping over. In sparkling wines, like champagne, the punt helps distribute the pressure inside more evenly, ensuring a nicer taste and a better pop. And even before the wine is poured into the bottle, a punt helps to sanitize the bottle with steam more easily.
