Best Hock Wine Bottles

There's nothing quite like pressing your own wine, but wine is only as good as the bottle it's stored in, so you'll want to have good wine bottles on hand. What's more, whether you're home brewing, looking for something to give out as a party gift, or perhaps hoping to paint a few bottles for an arts and crafts project, hock wine bottles are a great choice. From wedding centerpieces to around-the-house decorations to hummingbird feeders, there's a lot more you can do with these bottles than simply drink out of them. They come in different colors, are available in bulk, and give a classy look for an affordable price. Below are some of the best sets of hock wine bottles.

Best Antique Set

North Mountain Supply 375ml Glass Stretch Hock Wine Bottle



This set of hock wine bottles comes in an antique green hue, giving it that timeless, classic appearance.

What We Liked

These flat-bottomed hock bottles from North Mountain Supply combine the elegance of a stretch hock bottle and the mini size of 375mL for a cool, vintage combo, topped off with an antique green glass coloring that heralds the Prohibition era. These bottles come in a set of a dozen, and are also available in cobalt, frosted, and flint/clear glass options, although none are as pretty as this antique green (in our opinion). Get It Here.

Most Durable

In addition, this blue glass is both durable and beautiful, great for a variety of uses. Get It Now.

Best for White Wine

NorthernBrewer 750 ml Amber Glass Hock Bottles


Beautiful Amber Glass

These amber glass bottles are ideal for white wine.

What We Liked

If you’re looking for a set of hock bottles for white wine, these classy amber 750mL bottles (set of 12) are your best bet. They’re the traditional glass for German white wines, but they still work great for wines of all stripes. The amber glass is some of the most beautiful wine glass you’ll find online, and these bottles work great both for home brewing and for use in arts and crafts projects. Order One Here.

Best for Parties

375 ml Cobalt Blue Stretch Hock Bottles


A Large Set of Bottles

This set comes with twice as many bottles as any other on the list, great for parties or weddings.

What We Liked

If you’re looking to distribute a lot of wine, this set of 24 hock wine bottles offers twice as many as most other sets (and all the others on this list), which typically come in batches of a dozen. These bottles are only 375mL, so they’re smaller in size than the standard 750mL bottle, but for smaller servings of wine for guests at events, this is your best bet. The cobalt blue coloring is very dark (even darker than it looks online), ideal for preventing light from contaminating your wine batches. Order Online.
