Back to the topic. Oil threads and oil change topics are so interesting but....
Rather than the wine bottle (or whatever) a short piece of old 5/8" water hose fits perfectly over the oil filter housing drainer thing. It makes an extension for the oil to drain through.
A 12" piece of hose is enough to reach the drain pan and is easy to push on with the drainer on the end. Doesn't spill a drop of oil.
If you don't already know, the plastic drainer also removes the O-ring from the housing plug area.
It would seem that the bottle method needs it to be held in place and would get hot to the touch.
