    1B16D60D-A675-44CD-9E23-892515C8C152.jpeg well this just showed up. This giant glass bottle is as tall as a 5gl carboy and holds 5L- almost 7 bottles of wine!

    We have a similar size bottle. We filled it with our “House Cab” . Now when some says ‘ just open one more bottle’ I bring it out to surprised faces! Never open it, it’s kind of a long term aging experiment. Roy

    I love that idea! Where did you manage to find a cork for it?

    Not sure it was a few years ago. We had an assortment of cork sizes. Found one that fit and pounded it in, wouldn’t fit in the corker. Roy
