i'm a junkie for fairly useless information - so if you are too, please share!

did you know it takes approx. 2.5 pounds of grapes to make one bottle of wine?

Does anyone know how many gallons of wine are produced from 1 acre of grapevines?

I do like trivia!

Where does the vanilla flavor in wine come from?

If newer oak barrels were used in the wine making process, the wines will often have a hint of vanilla in both the aroma and flavor.

How about this to add to the equation:
A ton of grapes yields about 143 gallons of wine. There are 2.38 gallons of wine in a case (12 bottles), so a ton of wine will produce about 60 cases. Since there are 12 bottles in a case, a ton of grapes makes roughly 720 bottles of wine. The average wine bottle holds .750 ml, so for each bottle of wine, one needs about 2.78 pounds of grapes. To sum it all up, it takes about 630 grapes to produce one bottle of wine."

I would REALLY like to know how they calculate the bubbles!

By the way, did you know that ~
Thomas Jefferson helped stock the wine cellars of the first five U.S. presidents and was very partial to fine Bordeaux and Madeira - a bit of trivia :)
