What sets Wine Punts apart from the rest are the processes we have in place in our production.
 - Fire polished rim - when fire polished, each glass will have a smooth finish that is consistent with the rest of the glass. This process also prevents cracking and chipping from normal use.
 - Annealed - when glass is annealed, it is slowly cooled to relieve any internal stresses. This process will increase the durability to withstand even the harshest industrial use

The "punt" of a bottle is the indentation at the base of the bottle. In the old days, when wine bottles were each made by hand, its very likely that the punt was a result of the glass making process - but of course experienced glass makers would have been able to "fix" this before the bottle was done, and flattened the punt. Why didn't they? There are a variety of theories about why finished bottles had punts. Its important to note that nobody knows for sure :). The explanations below are argued about endlessly at wine events.

For Champagne and sparkling wine, the indentation helps to give structural integrity to the bottle, which has to be pretty strong to hold the pressure of the bubbly wine. Also, it helps the bottles stack if you are putting them one on top of the other during the second fermentation stage.

Recycled wine bottle glasses, also know as a Wine Punt, is simply a wine bottle converted into a drinking glass. The punt in the bottom is what gives the name for these recycled wine bottle glasses. Wine Punts mission is to create a quality product that makes a difference in the world, and we are doing it one bottle at a time.

Wine Punts is dedicated to helping the environment by sending less wine bottles to land fills and recycling them into drinking glasses. Not only is Wine Punts helping the environment but you as customers are recycling hundreds of bottles each month. Without the valued customers that drink from the better half, there would be no recycling at all.
