Where To Buy Empty Wine Bottles

Photo Credit: unknown There are several readers of Wine Press Blogger who are into home winemaking and very often I receive the same question in emails: Where can I buy empty wine bottles? So, I did some research and discovered a few places. I presume you already know how many you need. If not, figure that out first. A standard bottle of wine comes in 750ml bottles with a neck opening of approximately 18.5 mm and a No. 9 cork. This is the same size bottle you find in a grocery store or a restaurant. It would take about five 750 ml wine bottles to hold a gallon of wine. This accounts for any remaining sediment that might be left in something like a five gallon carboy. The bottles come 12 to a case and most likely you will have to order them in bulk.
