Question
wine bottle
wine bottle  
Dear sir I am trying to find a chianti bottle that stands about 16" TALL and the neck is curved can you tell me where I might could find one and what type of chianti comes in that bottle thank you.

Answer
Hi Brian,

Fancy bottle production is big business in the area around Chianti in Italy, mostly to suit the tourist souvenir trade. They come-up frequenly on eBay so I suggest you browse there and register an appropriate seach term so that you get emails when new ones become available.

The original content is usually a low-cost red wine that the bottle producer has sought because the bottles look and sell better when full. But they are never significant wines as such I'm afraid.

Regards,

David

Expertise

I have 40 year`s experience tasting, collecting and enjoying wines as an amateur enthusiast. Bordeaux and Port are my particular loves and I regularly buy and sell at auction. I have a good library and frequently participate in on-line discussions. I can only help with valuations, buying or selling if you tell me where you live as there are many variations around the world.

Experience

I would not feel confident answering questions on German wines or those of the USA, South Africa or Australia. But please check my prestige rating and browse "Browse Past Answers" at the top of this page to see if I'm the one you want to help on everything else! (PLEASE don't forget to tell me where you are if you want my estimation of value or help buying or selling!)

Organizations
I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
