Wine Math

One of the most frequently asked questions at the winery is how many bottles can a vine or an acre produce or some other variant of the same thing.

While wine tasting this last weekend in the central coast, I bought a really cool poster by Jan Davidson called, you guessed it, “Wine Math”. We’ll hang it at the winery but meanwhile here’s the summary for our vineyards here in Temecula.

One acre equals 600 vines

One vine bears 20 clusters (bunches)

One bunch has 75 berries

One acre produces 3 tons of grapes

One ton of grapes makes 2 1/2 barrels of wine

One barrel of wine equals 24 cases of wine

One case of wine contains 12 bottles (bet most of you knew this one)

One bottle pours 5 5 oz, glasses or 14 2 oz tastings


One glass of wine = 8 bunches = 600 berries

Now, that’s my kind of math!
