Is 500ml the perfect size?
Another reader, Graham Donaghy, has revived the call for more wines in 500ml bottles.
Donaghy, who has worked as a wine retailer, sommelier and restaurant manager, gives his reasons: One bottle is enough for one person (375ml just doesn’t work for me; the choice is ordinary and the amount insufficient).
Ten bottles per case makes it easy to calculate price, especially for stocktaking. The price per bottle is competitive. The weight of a carton is only 5 kg. And 500ml bottles age better than 375ml.
