Bottle sizes

Maximum and minimum bottle heights

Minimum and maximum bottle heights that can be vacuum sealed in the SoWine:

minimum height: 292mm
maximum height: 336mm

There are over 300 different bottle sizes and shapes generally in use for wine. The 80:20 rule generally applies, in that 80% of the market uses about 20% of the sizes and shapes available.

Nevertheless, the Sowine is designed for the most popular bottle sizes and shapes. Certain oversized/unusual bottles may not be vacuum sealed. They can still be held at the right temperature inside the chamber.

Please note the height restrictions above and also note that the Sowine cannot work with Alsace flute bottles (due to the taper of the neck), or the odd screwcap bottle with larger than standard openings (again few and far between).
