So why are Magnum bottles better?

Impressive for your guests. Magnum bottles are more impressive than the standard size bottles and will definitely be appreciated more. Taking a Magnum bottle to a party will definitely raise spirits.

Great for Parities. Magnum bottles are the size of two standard 75cl bottles which makes it ideal for small parties and gatherings.

Wine will age longer. In magnum bottles the ratio of oxygen to wine is less, which means the wine will be oxidized slower.  It is estimated that wine in Magnum bottles ages 1.5 times slower than in standard bottles.

Less sensitive to temperature fluctuations. Big wine bottles can keep their temperature for a longer time. One of the main rules in storing wines is to always have your wines at a stable temperature. Big temperature fluctuations can destroy your wine. (But of course your storing area must be cool most of the time and not warm most of the time)


Magnum bottles are available for sale at the Winery and selected wine shops. For more information please contact us.
