How Many Bottles in a Case of Wine?  

The Ultimate Guide to Buying a Case of Wine in 2018

Planning a wedding? Prepping for a party with your family and friends? Maybe you want to organize a wine tasting? If so, buying a case of wine may be in order.

When it comes to figuring out how many cases of wine you need, it is always helpful to know how many bottles come in a case. It might also be useful to understand the benefits of buying a case versus multiple bottles of wine.

When you buy a case of red wine for your event, you will end up saving money in the long run. Purchasing wine bottles for a large event will ramp up a significant price. But, opting for a case of wine will save you money in the long run.

How many Bottles are in a Case of Wine?
Now that you know buying a case of wine is the best option, it’s vital to know how many bottles are actually in a case of wine so that you can effectively plan.

In a standard case of wine, you will receive 12 bottles of wine. Each wine bottle (if standard size) contains 750 milliliters of wine. Therefore, if you have 12 bottles, you will have 9 liters or 2.3 gallons of wine in one case of wine. Just make sure you have a good wine opener that can handle the long wine list you have created.

How many Cases Should You Buy?
The biggest question when it comes to planning a party is how many cases you should buy for your guests. There is a simple formula that you can follow that will allow you to accurately estimate how many cases of wine would be sufficient for your occasion.

Let’s say you were inviting 100 guests to your wedding. If the wedding lasts for four hours, you will do the following equation:

100 guests X 4 hours X 1 glass/hour = 400 glasses.

Then, you take the 400 wine glasses and divide it by five glasses that you find in each bottle. You will get 80 bottles of wine. And, if you wanted to make sure that both wine lovers are taken care (red and white lovers), you can divide the 80 by 2 to get 40 bottles of red and 40 bottles of white.

If you have figured out that you need 80 bottles of wine for your 4-hour wedding for 100 guests, you will then need to figure out how many cases you will need. Divide the 80 bottles of wine you will need to keep the 100 guests happy at a wedding by 12 (how many bottles are in a standard case), and you will get 6.6 cases. Round that up to 7 cases of wine, and your wedding is sure to be a hit, with wine glasses never being empty.

How Should You Select Your Wine?
Remember that there are many different wine lovers out there. Buying multiple cases of red wine may not do your party much service. However, if you choose a variety of wine to compose your case of wine, you will be sure to please everyone.

A great way to start with your wine selections is to choose:

Five bottles of red wine
Five bottles of white wine
Two sparkling wines
Make sure to choose some bold and light red wine and white wine to keep the selection interesting and versatile, and that you will always have a wine bottle of the variety you prefer at hand.

Choosing the wine to create an exceptional case for your next party can be easy and affordable!

Winery of the Week: Newton Vineyards

Winery of the Week: Newton Vineyards

Newton Vineyard: “Nature by Design” philosophy is present throughout the winemaking process. The winery was custom designed to allow minimal handling of the fruit, from the use of gravity flow systems to separate batch fermenting. Newton wines are naturally fermented using indigenous yeast to preserve the natural fruit essence achieved in the vineyard. The subtle variances of each component, when blended together, contribute to the overall complexity of the finished wine.
