How many grapes in a bottle of wine, how much wine does a ton of wine grapes produce???

Often folks talk of vineyards in acreage. Due to the variance in planting density (vine spacing and row spacing) trellising systems (e.g. vertical shoot positioning, head pruned/trained), soils, and farming techniques, it’s hard to say exactly how much wine an acre of wine grapes will produce.Grapes

How Many Bottles Grow Here?

Vineyards vary in the spacing of the rows and also between the individual vines. Depending upon age and variety, some are more productive per vine than others, some produce larger clusters of fruit and some yield more juice per pound of fruit. Wine makers and their facilities also vary in the amount of juice they are willing or able to squeeze from the grapes.

    Jesus’ miracle of wine in Luke chapter 4. If you get three bottles of wine per gal. then the 6 stone vessels at the wedding feast would have held 540 bottles. At the amount of $150.00 per bottle for the good wine, then the amount would have been $81,000.00 plus tax for a total of $88,290.00. Just a small amount of a miriacle He can do if we only believe who He is through grace
