A question at a recent quiz got me thinking about wine bottle sizes. They have grand names derived from kings or notable historic legends, not withstanding their rarity in everyday life creating a sense of awe when seen. Here are Bordeaux's wine bottle sizes, and how many glasses each contains.

Even though my Lanzarote trip was a week long sports fest, I still managed to find some time to indulge in the distinctive locally-made wine. It's made in a very unusual way, with specialist methods to cope with the harsh environment.
