The average age of a French oak tree harvested for use in creating wine barrels is 170 years.
The first wine grapes in California were planted in Downtown Los Angeles in 1833 at the current site of the Union Train Station.
Wine re-corked and placed in a refrigerator will keep for two to four days.
It is theorized there are approximately 44 million bubbles in a bottle of sparkling wine/champagne.
It takes about six to eight clusters, or approximately 600 to 800 wine grapes (2.4 lbs), to make a bottle of wine.
One barrel of wine contains 740 lbs of grapes, equivalent to 59 gallons or 24.6 cases of wine.
75 grapes = 1 cluster
1 grape cluster = 1 glass
4 clusters = 1 bottle
40 clusters = 10 bottles = 1 vine
30 vines = 1200 clusters = 1 barrel
1 barrel = 60 gallons
60 gallons = 25 cases
400 vines = 1 acre
1 acre = 5 tons
5 tons = 332 cases
