Large Format Bottles

Drinking wine from a large format bottle is one of the best ways to enjoy a wine′s potential! Because the oxygen-to-wine ratio is lower in a larger bottle, wines typically age more slowly and have better maturation.

Magnums are inherently festive and are widely considered to offer the best balance between ageability and development, especially for Champagne. Not to mention, Magnums and Double Magnums are a great way to enjoy a wine with family and friends… and perfect on any Holiday table.

Standard: 750ml (one bottle). This is the standard sized wine bottle offering 4 to 6 glasses of wine

Magnum: 1.5 Liters (two bottles) 8-12 glasses of wine.

Double Magnum: 3 Liters (four bottles) 16-24 glasses of wine. In sparkling wines, a Jeroboam is 3 liters.
