Ok, maybe not just the lushes. Perhaps you’re looking to expand your cultural knowledge beyond reality TV. 😉
When I was creating my “Wine Bouquet” designs, I incorporated a variety of wine bottle shapes for some visual interest. Here are the most common bottle shapes, with shape characteristics and types of wine generally found in each.
I won’t get all in-depth and discuss things like bottle colors, punts (the hole in the bottom of the bottle), or the reasons for the shapes, but if you’re interested, eHow provides a quick lesson on it.
And just in case you’d like a visual reference to keep, I’ve created the above graphic as a PDF file that you can download & print! Click on the image above or right here and you’ll be taken to the PDF file. I created it in three colorways (retro/bright & bold/black & white), so be sure to specify a page number when printing or it will print all three colorways.
