Enough to go around!

From all night soirées to holiday feasts, hosting an event of any size or form takes planning. There’s a lot to figure out to ensure things go smoothly. And one of the biggest is making sure there is always enough wine to go around. But… how much is enough?

How Many Glasses in a Bottle?

The first step is knowing how many glasses there are in a bottle. A standard wine bottle is about 25 ounces, a standard restaurant pour is 5 ounces. So, there are 5 glasses in a bottle.

Of course, the enthusiasm people have for wine varies, but the average guest will drink about 2-3 5-ounce glasses in a night.

How Many Bottles?

We always say, when in doubt, round up to never run out. If you’re serving more than one kind of wine, you can double our suggestions at left, but know that you can also stretch each bottle a bit further since multiple wines will be served.

Know Your Crowd

The key to planning well is to think about your guests. Here are a few things to consider:

The drinking habits of your guests (think about beer & cocktail drinkers, DDs, and those who may abstain)
Other beverages you may be serving
The amount of food you’re making
The length of your event
The alcohol content (ABV) of the wines you’ve chosen
Random guests who show up uninvited
