Last time we took a look at a wine fun-fact about a butt of wine and learned that it is a measure approximately equal to two standard barrels.
So, here's some more wine fun-facts about the amount of grapes used in producing wine.
When you look out at a vineyard, it's easy to imagine that the grapes produced in that vineyard will make "a ton" of wine. Well, one ton of grapes results in a little more than two barrels of wine!
One barrel of wine equals:
- 60 gallons
- 25 cases
- 300 bottles
Stating it the other way around, to produce one bottle of wine it takes about 2.8 pounds of grapes or approximately four clusters.
So, there you go. A few more wine fun-facts. Maybe not as interesting as last week's butt of wine, but I hope this helps to put some things into perspective. Cheers!
