Wine Bottle Sizes, Dimensions & Wine Racks

What is the average size of a wine bottle?

Wine bottle dimensions and shapes vary, with typical measurements being 3-3.2" in diameter and 12" in height. Champagne bottles are slightly larger, at 3.5" in diameter and closer to 12.5" tall in 750-milliliter amounts. Therefore certain wine racking styles work better for certain wine bottle sizes. Consider your personal preferences and requirements when planning bottle storage. We've created this bottle sizing chart to help you learn which wine racks best fit your collection.

Our wine bottle sizing guide doesn't cover 100% of bottle dimenstions on the market, but represents industry averages. Every company, brand, and bottle is unique and this chart is reflective of most bottles you are likely to store.
