What’s a punt?  AKA Dimple or a Kick-up

Punts don’t contribute to the quality of wine but they could be helpful during wine service.

Punts for Champagne and sparkling wines are deeper because they strengthen the glass that needs to withstand high pressure.

A bottle with a punt is more expensive since it requires more glass. It is cheaper to produce a bottle without the punt. However, a punt is no indicator of the quality of the wine, but rather the winemaker’s visual preference.
