A fan of the Dean’s List challenged me to add some interesting facts to the newsletter, and we think it’s a great idea. So, I hope you enjoy some of my favourite facts about wine in this first 5 fun facts!  No theme for this one, just some good dinner party trivia.

  • It takes 3-5 years for a grapevine to start bearing fruit that can be made into wine (prior to that, the wine is too tart and generally undrinkable). After that, grapevines can usually bear fruit for another 40+ years.
  • It takes an average of 200 individual grapes or approximately 2.5 lbs of grapes to make a 750ml bottle of wine.
  • The cork from a bottle of Champagne can fly out as fast as 80 km per hour due to the pressure in the bottle. This is why you should cover the cork with your thumb after you twist off the cage!
  • It is estimated that globally, we consume nearly 25 billion litres of wine per year. That number may be low for 2020 given how much we’ve all been at home…
  • Nebuchadnezzar is the name of the largest standard wine bottle. It holds 15 Litres of wine. I’m not sure whose standard a 15L bottle is, but I hope that they invite me over!
