You'll Never Buy Wine The Same Way Again, Government Says

Posted: Jan 10, 2021

New regulations from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) have been announced, changing the required wine sizes and allowing for smaller bottles.

Previously, there were nine acceptable wine sizes, and while some people wanted this to stay, three more have been added through the Dec. 29 amendment. Now, places that sell alcohol can sell wine in 200-, 250-, and 355-milliliter bottles. The 200-milliliter size is about half a pint, while the 250 is about the size of a slim aluminum can. The 355 milliliter equals the size of a regular 12-ounce can. (Before your next grocery run, read up on the 8 Grocery Items That May Soon Be in Short Supply.)

"Although TTB had originally proposed to generally eliminate the standards of fill for wine and distilled spirits, TTB is not adopting that proposal at this time," the official document reads. "The amendments described in this final rule will provide bottlers with flexibility by allowing the use of the added container sizes, and will facilitate the movement of goods in domestic and international commerce, while also providing consumers broader purchasing options."
