Odd wine bottle

Unusual wine bottle on display at Café Amore, Cypress (Houston) Texas.

Three liter hand-crafted crystal bottle of 1999 Super Toscani IGT wine, about three feet tall. Here’s a close-up of the label.

  1. Very cool shape.

    Homework for tonight: describe an equation approximating the shape of the bottle.

    Extra credit: translate to spherical polar coordinates.

    Friday quiz: drink the whole bottle.

  2. Looks like a ‘yard of wine’ instead of ale.

    Would be fun for a Cartesian diver if you can see through the glass.

    Geeze if it’s clear at all I have to get one for an impossible object.

    I only went there just after it opened, before he changed anything except the special.

  3. Woah! That’s a tall wine bottle.

    I need to get a pic, but my Mom has a huge bottle that spirals upward…Not sure of the origin or type, but it has to be about a gallon of vino.
    I will get a pic ASAP and post it to here.

  4. Hi can anyone tell me how/where could I find this wine, I bought an empty bottle a few years ago at a public market and haven’t been able to find a replacement.

  5. Hey I have the sane wine bittle from 1995 has not been opened and has a sticker on it “$25,000 grand prize validation” unfortunately my puppy chewed up the wicker basket it was in and the sticker. I think it’s still pretty cool though very unique and sure gets everyone’s attention.

  29. I have a 32″ bottle of BRACCIALE TOSCANO, bottled by CENTROVINI SPA, PEORA, ITALY. It is in the shape of a woman who appears to be kneeling with arms above her head. Also on the label it says Imported by BEVERAGE IMPORTERS, NEWTON, MASS. The top of the bottle says MARCHIO NATIONALE. There is not a date on the label or on the top where it would have been opened. It has not been opened.
