When it comes to planning a party, one of the biggest questions hosts have is how much alcohol to provide for their guests. Specifically, how much wine will be needed for a party with 100 guests? If half of your guests consume alcohol, and about half of those drinkers prefer wine, you should plan on serving around 50 bottles of wine to keep everyone happy and hydrated throughout your five-hour gathering. Here’s a breakdown of the math:
50% of 100 guests = 50 guests who consume alcohol
50% of those 50 guests = 25 wine drinkers
25 wine drinkers x 10 glasses of wine each = 250 glasses of wine
250 glasses of wine ÷ 4 glasses per bottle = at least 63 bottles of wine needed
Of course, it’s always better to overestimate rather than underestimate when it comes to alcohol, so consider buying a few extra bottles just in case. This will not only ensure that everyone is happy, but it will also help you to avoid the embarrassment of running out of wine before the party ends. Cheers to a successful party!
