A conventional case of wine consists of twelve 750-ml bottles and weighs approximately 40 pounds. A case of six 1.5-liter bottles weighs nearly the same.
Before bottling and packaging, wine has a gross weight of 10 pounds per gallon, or around five 750-milliliter bottles. When you include the weight of the cork, glass, and label, each 750ml bottle weighs between 2.75 and 3.5 pounds.
Some wine is packaged in boxes, resulting in a lighter case weight. The total weight of the wine’s gallonage remains unchanged, although cardboard and plastic bladders are likely to weigh less than glass bottles.

How Many Grapes Are in a Wine Case?
Typically, a single vine will yield approximately 10 bottles of wine. According to McEVOY Ranch, each vine produces approximately 40 clusters of grapes, with an average of 100 grapes each cluster. With a case comprising 12 bottles, 48 clusters would be necessary. At 100 grapes per cluster, a case of wine would require 4,800 grapes.
