How many grapes would a woodchuck chuck?

I don’t drink any alcohol, so the fanciest beverage you are likely to find me with is one of the crazy milkshakes at Black Tap in NY. Seriously, google them. Those things are crazy.

That’s all to say that when this trivia question came in, I had no idea. How many grapes does it take to make a bottle of wine? Apparently, about 2.5 pounds, or roughly, about 500 grapes. If you want to really extrapolate that into the realm of folding money, this all calculates out to getting 160 gallons of wine from every ton of grapes you grow. 😀

I actually took this photo during the holidays at the office last year, where we had a bottle from a Washington winery, Tanjuli, and one from Mission Mountain in Montana.
