It is seemingly a simple question, “How many wine bottles are in a case?” but there are a few scenarios that can make the answer a bit more complicated. The industry standard for the number of wine bottles in a case is 12 bottles, each with 750-mL of wine in them. In total, this equates to 9 liters or 2.3 gallons of wine in a standard case.

However, some wine producers will sell a half case with standard size wine bottles in them but still refer to it as a case of wine. This is oftentimes the case if you are buying from a high-end winery.
Further still, some wine sellers will package a wine case with 6 magnum bottles (twice the 750-mL size) and call it a case of wine because the total wine volume is still equivalent to the industry standard.
Who Buys Wine by the Case?
Wine is a very complex beverage and in many cases it can be hard to find the right wine for you. If you have found a particular winemaker that you have grown fond of, then I recommend you consider buying an entire case of wine in order to grow your appreciation of it.

Another great benefit of buying wine by the case is the volume discount in comparison to buying wine by the bottle. At the retail level, buying by the case can result in a 10-15% discount. Speaking of buying at a discount, if your Costco sells wine, usually you get 10% off there too if you buy 6 or more bottles! Lastly, online wine sellers, such as vivino.com or wine.com frequently offer free shipping on orders for wine by the case.
What Types of Wine Bottles Should You Mix in a Case?
The first wine club ever, “Wine Club of the Month” was created in 1972 in California and since then wine clubs are a very popular way for both wineries and their affiliates to build a strong connection with their customers. As discussed in the costs section, the price per case can vary wildly so you need to be sure you have a reason to get a particular wine every month or so. A lot of wine clubs offer steep discounts for the first wine shipment, which is pretty attractive for people who want to try a higher quality case of wine at a more affordable price point. Lastly, joining a wine club is great if you want to rely on having wine around the house for the Everyday Wine Drinker or Party Host Collectors. Hope you enjoy!
