The Mysterious Bottle Dots


Near the bottom of virtually all wine bottles you will find a string of little dots. What is funny about them is the different ideas people have about what these dots are for. Here are some mostly verbatim quotes found on a few forums:

Here's the correct answer: If there is a quality problem during the bottle manufacturing process the dots allow the bottle manufacturer to identify the mold and the cavity from which the defective bottles came from and fix the mold.

I never thought that such an inane topic could have so many folks taking the time to comment about it.

Oops, I guess I am one of them now.
