On average, a regular bottle of wine contains four glasses of wine.
For dinners, a good average is to assume two glasses of wine per person. So a dinner for four people should include two bottles of wine (may we recommend one bottle of Chardonnay and one bottle of Zinfandel?) and you can scale accordingly.
For cocktail hours or weddings, it is important to consider the atmosphere and the guests. Maybe the glasses will be smaller so a bottle could pour five glasses? Or maybe you know when your family gathers at weddings, the average number of glasses might increase slightly. Do you want multiple wines available? Will there be other beverages available? When in doubt, err on the side of having a few extra bottles. You can always open them another time 😊
We also encourage you to consider a larger bottle for momentous occasions. Big bottles bring the fun so consider including one in your special occasion.
