|Bottle Sizes and Names Chart compiled by LeDomduVin 2017|
Therefore, I decided to write this post for those of you who might be in need for detailed information on bottles dimensions (height, Overall Width, Neck top, Neck Height, Shoulder width, Bottle body height, bottom of the bottle, etc...) and to create a table based on measurements of actual standard bottles of different formats from various regions that we have in our cellars.
So as usual, unsatisfied by my search results, I decided to take the measurements of the bottles that I had on hand at the office and in our cellars and created the following easy to read "Bottle Dimensions" table.
So here it is.
- The measurements are mostly "ranges" due to bottle dimensions variations, as I could not create a table for each unique specific bottle (which could prove impossible as there are so many shapes and forms and sizes of wine bottles). Therefore, the variations ranges apply to the most common bottles found in the market. So called "standard" bottles.
- There is no measurement for the "shoulder" as, (like for the human body 😉), it is difficult to really define where the "Neck" stop and where the "Shoulder" begin... it is a grey area, so I leave it up to you to decide and be the judge of that....
- Consequently, the measurements of the bottle "Body" are approximate and may vary depending on your own judgment, yet it is roughly measured from the bottom "Shoulder" to the bottom of the bottle.
