Why are wine bottles glass?

Answer . 

Glass is very inert and therefore does not have a chemical reaction with the wine - and therefore does not effect the taste of the wine. Also coloured glass is used to protect the wine from sunlight, which will also alter the taste of the wine. Glass also seals in the wine and stops the wines exposure to air (except through the cork if it has one) which will also alter the taste.

imagine it is also a historical thing carried over from a time when modern materials didn't exist - in the same way screw tops and synthetic corks are better but lots of people prefer real corks. Another reason might be the economic consideration.

 glass is pretty cheap. Plus the experience is probably an important factor as well. Can you imagine taking a nice carton or can of wine to a friend's house to share over a nice dinner? It wouldn't feel the same.
