Size Does Matter!

Anybody who has purchased a bottle of wine is familiar with the standard, 750 ml bottle. The vast majority of wine is sold in these bottles. Some may be familar with the Magnum bottle; at 1.5 liters, it is equivalent to two standard bottles. These are great for parties and other group gatherings, but what if you are alone and don’t want to drink a whole 750 ml bottle? You could grab a half-bottle, 375 ml, which is about 2 glasses. All fine options, depending on your circumstaces.

But did you know there are at least 17 different size bottles for wine? Yes, seventeen! From the “split” – about 1/4 bottle at 187 ml, to the massive “Midas”, holding 30 liters – about 40 standard bottles!
