Are most wine bottle shapes/colors available in both cork and screwcap styles, or is cork style much more prevalent?

For standard moulds, both cork and screw cap finishes are available.  For lower volume or special moulds, cork is much more prevalent.

As a manufacturer it doesn't cost me any more to create different top finishes.  with the Natural cork market sometimes having external natural limitations on crop yield it may be harder to get natural cork.  as a result, some wineries have yielded to synthetic corks or ROPP caps.  Either way It costs me no more or less for screw, cork or ROPP tops.  I am witnessing a transition to ROPP tops from cork tops for more popular brands.  This could be for storage and handling benefits.  I hope this helps

We have a good selection of BVS or stelcap wine bottles in stock.
I think you will see more and more BVS bottles in the next 10 years; the cost of the equipment is more affordable and with BVS caps no risks to run into a cork shortage.

In the glass industry, one of the most expensive parts/processes is creating the bottle mold. Because of this we could assume, there are many more bottle models available for the wine cork, than for the relatively new screw cap. The wine cork has been used for centuries, therefore there are many more molds available for wine corks.
