In this case, he can purchase one or more bottles depending on the number of people attending the party or other event. Typically each wine bottle of popular brands contains 750 ml of wine, though there are a few wine bottles available with 1000 ml of wine or other sizes. It is advisable to check the quantity of wine for the bottle which is selected, before deciding the number of bottles which have to be ordered.

    Age, Brand

    Usually, for each red wine available, the seller will specify the age of the wine. Typically older wines will be more expensive compared to recently produced wine. The popularity of the wine also depends on the country of origin and specific manufacturer. Red wines from France and Italy are usually considered the best by experts since they use the best materials, techniques. These wines are also the most expensive. Some wines are rare and these will also cost more. Those who have a limited budget can consider the other wines like port or Shiraz which are more reasonably priced, especially if they are produced outside Europe.

    Other factors

    One of the main factors which some buyers consider while purchasing red wine is the price. If the buyer likes to drink red wine, but cannot afford to pay more he should consider the cheaper wines available. He can also consider purchasing the wine in larger quantities like 6 or more bottles at a time since he will usually save a substantial amount of money due to bulk discounts. While some wine drinkers like to drink only one wine, others are interested in experimenting. So they can order the more popular wines to check their taste or check the newer wines available.
