Serving-Sized Wine Wets Your Whistle While You Wander

Illustration for article titled Serving-Sized Wine Wets Your Whistle While You Wander

What is a bottle of wine, really? Four glasses of the good stuff. But unless you're drinking wine in your house or at a fancy restaurant, chances are you don't have a corkscrew or stemware on you.


Stacked wine eliminates the need for both. Each 750 mL "bottle" of Stacked wine consists of four individually-sealed, perfectly-measured 187 mL plastic glasses of wine. So the next time you're out for a hike or a picnic in the park, try it! Stacked Wine might not be the classiest way to serve it up, but it's way more convenient than lugging a bottle or carrying cups.

Stacked wine is available in California Merlot or California Chardonnay for $15 per 4-pack bottle. Unfortunately, the company can't ship the wine outside California yet, but there are plans to branch out elsewhere soon. [Stacked Wine via The Atlantic]

Seriously, this is a tech website and no one has yet pointed out that a serving of wine (at least here in the US) is 5 ounces = 148ml. So a bottle of wine has a bit more than 5 glasses in it. This is based on a "standard" alcohol content of 12% (although much like beer wine has been trending higher in . At 5 ounces that strength wine is equivalent to 1 shot (1.5 ounces) of 80 proof liquor or one "standard" strength beer (12 ounces at 5% alcohol).

The 187mL comes from dividing the 750 in half and in half again. I'm not sure if they do this in europe or not (I'd think not...more likely they'd do 5 200mL servings to make it nice and evenly divisible - what's the point of the metric system other than easy division:). It's mind-boggling (IMHO) that the standard here isn't 150mL since that divides evenly into 750 and it's almost exactly a standard serving anyway.
