When purchasing wine glasses for their bars, restaurants, or wineries, some owners and managers opt for custom measuring wine glasses.
Measuring Wine Glasses Can Cut Down on Your Pour Costs
From my experience, bartenders don’t pour consistently accurate volumes of wine. I’ve seen pours range from four ounces — which is just wrong and makes Mr. Picky angry — to seven ounces. And usually the bartender tops off his favorite customer with any remaining wine in the bottom of the bottle.
Imagine if you could accurately pour wine at your restaurant. The cost savings can be dramatic. Let’s say your bartender on any given night typically pours around six ounces per glass of the house Chardonnay. After pouring wine for four customers there is an ounce left in the bottle (since there are roughly 25 ounces of wine in a bottle), which the bartender uses to top off his favorite customer. Let’s also say the bartender opened 12 bottles of Chardonnay that night and with each bottle the bartender topped off his customers: If he or she had saved that one ounce for each bottle that would have equated to two more glasses of wine and more revenue for that bar or restaurant.
At Mr. Picky, we create custom measuring wine glasses with measuring marks that suit your needs. The most common measuring marks are five and six ounces but can be anywhere from three ounces and up. Some restaurant managers want two measuring marks — let’s say three and six ounces — to suit the demands of their customers.

We were sitting at the bar at Brophy Brothers in the Ventura Harbor with pristine views of the water and the city of Ventura in the distance. Having just finished a glass of Sauvignon Blanc each, Mrs. Picky and I wanted just a splash more. A full glass each would be a little too much since had errands to run, so we decided to split a glass. I guess the bartender wanted a nice tip or thought Mrs. Picky was cute — who wouldn’t? — and proceeded to pour us two healthy glasses of wine. A smile slowly overtook my face as I thought to myself this is exactly why we invented our Measuring Wine Glasses.
A Wine Glass That Will Save Restaurants and Bars Money
When talking to some bartenders at Bar Rincon, the bar inside Whole Foods in Oxnard, California — we had just created custom measuring wine glasses for them — they talked about how easy it now was to pour the wine. Before purchasing our glasses, they had marked one wine glass at the 6 ounce mark with a Sharpie, and would put another wine glass next to it and fill to the Sharpie line.
How Much Money Will You Save?
How much money can you save by using our measuring wine glasses? This of course varies from restaurant to restaurant, but here’s a scenario for you to consider. Lets say you have one bartender and she typically overpours by How much can u save? Or 5 oz mark
let’s say u want a 5 oz measuring mark but before having the mark your bartenders were pouring 6 oz pours. 25 oz in bottle, 5 glasses per bottle. Compare to 4 glasses of wine with oz left over12 x 1 oz 12×5 vs 12x6Over pouring
