How much wine?

Having a holiday party...

if you are entertaining this season and are wondering how much wine to have on hand, here is a great rule of thumb

There are approximately 5 glasses of wine per 750 ml bottle;

10 glasses per 1.5 L bottle

There are 60 glasses of wine per case ( both 750 ml bottles or 1.5L 

You should plan on one glass of wine per hour per person at your party

For example, if you are having 60 people for a 4 hour party, you will need 3- 4 cases of wine. Remember, always have a little more on hand than you calculate (there's always another party!) and make modifications if you have beer and other mixed drinks on hand.
