"Wine prepares hearts and makes them more ready to passion" said Roman poet Ovid. Wines are usually bottled in 0.75L bottles, the current standard for the wine business and the size we usually see in our tables. However in the course of the years new bottles and new sizes have been introduced in the market, even though few of them have really established themselves as a standard. Among the most common ones we have: Magnum (1.5l), Jéroboam (3l), Réhoboam (4.5l), Mathusalem (6l) and Balthazar (12l).
Why buy special sizes wines online
By browsing the list of special sizes of wines online it is immediately noticed their names are inspired to ancient biblical kings and not only, a choice which is not casual and it is intentional. The biggest special sizes are traditionally related to champagne, used for parties and sumptuous events for which the association with names of ancient biblical kings seems to be appropriate. In the biggest special sizes are usually kept great wines, fine wines to be drunk only in great occasions. Bottles of wine in special sizes are looked for by collectors because, in particular in larger sizes, wine can be kept better but the price increases as well. Special sizes are often rare, still wines are usually bottled in Magnum and Jéroboam sizes.
