List of Numbers
Last Thursday I participated in a winery tour and tasting at the Ponte Winery in Temecula, California. Our tour guide Herman was quite humorous but also quite smart. He handed me a little cheat sheet card he kept in his wallet.
It's called Wine by Numbers. Here are some of the interesting facts and figures. These figures are approximations.
- 400 vines per acre
- 4-5 tons pers acre
- 160 gallons per ton
- 60 cases per ton
- 75 pounds per vine
- 25 bottles per vine
- 240 cases per acre
- 1 grape cluster = 1 glass of wine
- 24 cases per barrel
- 288 bottles per barrel
- 416 cases per 1000 gallons
- 10,000 different grape varietals

Like consultants are so famous for saying, it depends. You'll get anywhere from 4 to 5 glasses out of a bottle of wine
A 750ml bottle has just over 25 ounces. A typical wine pour is about six ounces. Hope this helps.
