Well... You could play around with it, with variations like בקבוק יין, בקבוק של יין, בקבוק היין, and so on.

Technically, if a bottle is empty, it cannot be a bottle of wine anymore :)

The "the" is the "ה" before "יין".

ll "יין" = "wine".

ll "היין" = "the wine".

ll "בקבוק יין" = "a bottle of wine" or "a wine bottle".

ll "בקבוק היין" = "the bottle of wine" or "the wine bottle".

Maybe, but how much grape juice would you need until you can't tell the difference between "blessed is Mordechai and cursed is Haman"? :P
