Could you please explain why "wine bottle" is used in one sentence and "bottle of wine" is used in the other. Are they different?
1. Can you buy a bottle of wine to have with dinner?
2. It's such a mess in her. There are empty wine bottles everywhere.
Re: wine bottle
The bottle of wine refers to the wine.
The wine bottle refers to the container.
You can have an empty bottle, or a bottle of wine, but not an empty bottle of wine.
