How Much Should I Buy?

A basic rule of thumb is to allot two glasses of sparkling wine per person, one for the cocktail hour and another for the toast, and then two glasses of wine per person, with an additional glass of wine per hour after the initial three hours.

Glasses of sparkling wine tend to be smaller than table wines, so you can figure on getting eight glasses of sparkling wine to the bottle, while six is a more reasonable figure to expect from a bottle of table wine.
