  • wine bottle punts
    according to a fifty bottle sampling by dave gorman, the depth of a wine bottle punt is directly correlated to the price of the bottle. the formula is: price of bottle = (dimple depth in mm + £3.49) / 4.3144 - £1. you can read about it on itchy squirrel. he doesn't mention it, but i would assume that punt depth also correlates to the wholesale cost of the bottle itself.
