Wine volumetrics

In the past, Yours For Good Fermentables has examined beer volume measurements. It's due time for a look at wine metrics, courtesy Wente Vineyards.

  • 1 grape cluster = 1 (big) glass of wine
  • 75 grapes = 1 grape cluster
  • 4 grape clusters = 1 750-milliliter bottle of wine (~ 25.4 fluid ounces)
  • 40 grape clusters = 1 grapevine
  • 1,200 grape clusters = 1 barrel* of wine
  • 1 barrel of wine = 60 gallons
  • 60 gallons = 25 cases
  • 1 grapevine = 10 750-milliliter wine-bottles
  • 1.2 grapevines = 1 case of wine (12 750-milliliter wine-bottles)
  • 30 vines = 1 barrel
  • 400 vines = 1 acre
  • 1 acre = yields 332 cases

* A wine barrel in Burgundy contains the equivalent of 228 liters or ~ 60 US gallons. A Bordeaux wine barrel, however, is sized at 225 liters or ~59 US gallons. One US beer barrel equals 31 US gallons. One US bourbon barrel equals ~53 gallons.
