Many of us enjoy wine for its wonderful tastes and aromas – now it’s time to learn more about wine, so as you drink it, you can also impress friends with your wide range of wine knowledge as well! Check back every week for a new wine factoid or tip, to help you enjoy your wine to the fullest!
Wine By The Numbers:
One bottle of wine is around 25.6 ounces, or if you like to think in metric terms, 0.75 liters. This is usually considered to be 4 glasses. As a rule of thumb, it takes about 2.4 pounds of grapes (usually 600 to 800 grapes) to produce a bottle of wine!
