How Many Ounces Are in a Bottle of Wine?

Browse any wine section and you’ll quickly realize there are many types of wine bottles. So the amount of how much wine is in each will vary.

Here are the types of glass bottles and how many fluid ounces are in each one.

How many sizes do wine bottles come in?


Let’s start off with a standard wine bottle. These contain 25.4 oz or 750 ml of wine.

Half, Demi, or Split

This bottle is exactly what it sounds like; it has half the content of a full bottle of wine (standard). You’ll get 12.07 oz or 375 ml.

Quarter (A “Piccolo” or “Split” in Champagne)

As the name suggests, a quarter contains a fourth of alcohol when compared to a standard bottle of wine. So you’ll get 6.03 ounces of wine, or 187 ml.

Aluminum Cans (American Beer Can Size)

Some wines will come in aluminum cans for convenience. These typically hold 12 ounces or 354 ml.

How Many Sizes Do Wine Bottles Come In?

There are 4 sizes of wine bottles: standard, half, quarter, and aluminum cans. If you’re into sweet wines (dessert wines), those have their own size (16.09 oz or 500 ml).

Some brands will also have their own sizes.

What Is a Serving Size of Wine?

The serving size of wine is “a glass”. However, this can vary depending on the type of wine you’re drinking.

For example, red wine glasses can range from 8 to 22 ounces, while white wine glasses range from 8 to 12 ounces. But the standard pour of wine for both is 5 ounces. So a typical glass of wine is 5 ounces. The size of the glass doesn’t matter. Wine glasses are larger so the wine has room to open and breathe.

How Many 4 oz Glasses of Wine Are in a 750 ml Bottle?

1 ounce converts to just under 30 ml (so 1 glass = 120 ml). This means you’ll get a little more than 6 glasses of wine in a 750 ml bottle.

How Many Glasses in a Bottle of Wine 750 ml?

At a restaurant, the standard pour is 6 oz. If you order a bottle of wine, then you’ll get approximately 4 glasses of wine.

What Is a 5 oz Glass of Wine?

A 5 oz glass of wine is considered a standard drink in the US. It has 14 grams of pure alcohol.

How many 8 ounce glasses are in a bottle of wine?

Standard wine bottles contain 750 ml of wine which is 25 fluid ounces. So one 750ml bottle of wine has about three 8 ounce glasses of wine.

Is a Half Bottle of Wine Too Much?

For most people, half a bottle of wine in a night isn’t too much. This is just 2 glasses of wine. There are some health benefits to drinking wine, but only in moderation.

Standard Red Wine Pour

A standard red wine glass can range from 8 ounces to over 22 ounces. However, this does not mean you fill the glass to the top. A standard red wine pour is 5 ounces of wine. Red wine needs room to open up and allow the aromas to swirl throughout. The size of the pour will always stay the same regardless of the different glasses.

Standard White Wine Glass

Standard white wine glass holds 8 to 12 ounces. The standard serving size of white wine is 5 ounces.

How many bottles of wine per 5 gallons? 

About 2 cases of 750ml bottles make 5 gallons.

Is 8 Oz Of Wine A Day Too Much

This can vary depending on the research provided. However, experts say a maximum amount of wine for women is a 5 oz glass of wine, and for men two 5 oz glasses of wine, no more than several times a week. Experts strongly advise women against having more than 3 drinks of wine per day, and for men, 4 drinks of wine per day.

How many people does one bottle of wine serve?

A standard bottle of wine (750 ml) has five 5 oz. glasses of wine. This will serve about 2-4 people. A Magnum bottle is also known as equal to two standard bottles of wine and will serve 4-5 people.

If you’re hosting a party, calculate at least 3 glasses of wine per guest.
