Wine bottle sizes

Wine bottle sizes

Do you know the names of the larger bottles of wine? There are several more than I would have expected and we see virtually none of them in the retail market beyond the “Magnum.” But here they are:

Magnum(2),Jeroboam(4),Methuselah(8),Salmanazar(12),Balthazar(16),Nebuchadnezzar(20)

The numbers beside the names┬árepresent how many 750ml bottles are contained in that one container. And just in case you were wondering, that largest bottle, the “20” bottle container is equal to about 4 gallons of wine and would weigh about 34lbs WITHOUT the container….. just sayin
