Ever wondered if there's a 'right' way to open a bottle of wine with a corkscrew? Kay breaks down the basics to make you look like an expert every time!
Open a large format wine (1.5L, 3.0L, 6.0L, etc.) to add an elegant touch to your next dinner party. Set large format bottles upright a day in advance to let the sediment fall to the bottom of the bottle. Use a decanter for your large format wines and open the bottles before your guests are due to arrive.
A standard bottle of wine (750 ml) holds five 5 oz. glasses of wine. Generally, this will serve between 2-4 people. A Magnum bottle also known as 1.5L is equal to two standard bottles of wine, and will serve 4-5 people. Each bottle doubles in size from there - a 3.0L, which is also known as a Jeroboam or Double Magnum will serve 6-8 people and a 6.0L or Imperial, will serve 12-16 people.
