What is the minimum and maximum space between the wine and the Cork in the bottle?

When I ask that question, most people like about an index finger's width from the bottom of the cork. That has worked well for me.

That sounds about right, mine are usually about 3/4" but that just happens based on a 1-3/4" cork and amount of wine left once the bottle filler tube is drawn out of the bottle. Stays very consistant.
