I think you should try it with some commercial wine and rebottle it with your idea - I believe you will find out that is why the commercial vacuum bottle fillers fill along the side, rather than straight down.

That's an interesting idea - thanks.

I was planning on testing with water but that's not going to let me understand how much difference there is with foaming and whether it's a problem for consistent fill level or not...
