Q: How much wine do these hold?
A: Our experiments suggest that these wine glasses will hold up to 250ml (if you top it right up to the rim) but a far more realistic 185ml if you leave about 1cm at the top of the glass. You'll be far less likely to spill the wine, too.
I would say that these glasses are in the regular sized glass of wine category, as opposed to those giant glasses that you can get 1/3rd of a bottle in! These glasses would be highly recommended by the people who encourage responsible drinking. :)
