I bring bottles all the time and the maximum I had in a suitcase is 6. Usually if it is just one or two I'd wrapped it with my clothes and put them right in the middle (to avoid potential damage from collision with other luggage). If you put them on the side and around the corner then they will break.

For the 6, I used something called "Wine Skin" which is quite popular in states. I had 3 and I also have some bubble wrapping so that they are secured. I put them in the middle as mentioned above, but with extra clothing in between them.

I used this method for Champagne, Sake, regular wine bottles. No problem at all.
