Which wine bottles do you need?
Mark Twain considered that clothes make the man, and the same applies to wine. Wine makers have found that people prefer to drink wine from a standard bottle – this is how they expect to see their wine served. However there is a reason for using different colours of bottle, for example. The ultraviolet rays that make up sunlight can degrade the contents of a bottle of wine, which is why it tends to be kept in dark cellars. Wines that will be kept bottled for some time, if they need to age for example, are usually bottled in green glass, as the darker colour can protects its contents from the sun better than lighter glass. Lighter, fruitier white wines which don’t need to aged in the same way are safe to decant into clear glass bottles, which also serve to show off their lovely, delicate colouring. Consider how you will be using and storing your wine before you order.
