Default Wine Bottle Question

I am considering doing a batch of wine and I was wondering if it mattered if you put white wine into red wine bottles (aka white wine in green bottles)?

The wine will never know what bottle it is in. Makes no difference unless you are storing in direct sunlight. Mike

I have another question regarding wine bottles. Is stove top pasteurizing wine in wine bottles with a cork setup okay?

If you are referring to the stove top pasteurization used for canning, it won't work for corks. Corks breath, it won't benefit from the heating cycle.

The heat used for canning is used to create a vacuum for the lid to seal.

NO. The corks will probably pop out before the bottle explodes, but not necessarily.

You don't want to pasteurize wine anyway, because fermentation must be done before bottled in regular wine bottles as they don't hold pressure. If you want to carbonate wine, you must use champagne bottles or beer bottles.

It's a style and tradition thing.
it doesn't matter at all.

Yeah I know it's not the norm, but I have family members that won't drink it if it's not because they believe it's riddled with yeast and bacteria.

I tried to google this and read another post that said something similar but I don't understand why. Glass should be okay when heated, just like when you put them in the dishwasher. The only variable here would be the cork. I wasn't thinking about submerging the corks themselves, just the body of the wine bottle, but I'm not sure what would happen.

so you go through the motions when they are watching and ignore it when they aren't

If you GENTLY heat them (say 160 degrees) it should be fine, but a viggerous boil will cause the corks to pop. Its a volume/pressure thing.
