Number of Drinks in a Bottle of Wine
How many drinks are there in a bottle of wine?
In the United States, a typical 750-mL bottle of wine will contain 5 servings or drinks. This is according to the standard measure of alcohol as published in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , where a standard drink is defined to be ‘Å“any drink that contains 0.6 ounces (13.7 grams or 1.2 tablespoons) of pure alcohol’Å“. This number is equivalent to 5 ounces of wine at 12% alcohol, so a 750-mL bottle will contain about 5 drinks or servings. In Canada the same measurement follows, based on standards from the Liquor Control Board of Ontario.
