Wine bottles shape?

Why do wine bottles have a cone shape in the bottom?

    That's generally in bottles for champagne or sparkling wines.

    I believe it both helps show the sediment during the final fermentation in the bottle that creates the "fizz", and strengthens the bottle to help contain the gas pressure.

    It's called a "punt" and if you ask a dozen people why it is there, you will get 13 different answers. High on the list ar: strengthening the bottle, making it look as if the bottle holds more wine than it does, and corralling the sediment.

    As Robert said.

    It's sparkling wine bottles that are like that. It's a stronger shape than a flat bottom and any sediment left in the wine settles into the lowest part.
