If Magnums and larger formats offer a wow effect, half bottles offer both friendliness and the possibility of relaxed exploration.
You might be looking for a special wine to drink on your own or for the chance of opening different – and amazing – bottles and not waste a drop. Or you might simply need to cater to different tastes, without making anyone feel guilty.
Half bottles are convenient and encapsulate the same stories as their bigger siblings, offering a great value option if you think you might not finish a bigger format.
This is also a great solution to try wines and/or vintages you are considering buying in 75cl or Magnum but would like to try first.
