Drinking is only fun when you don’t go too far!
It will come as no surprise that everyone at Bin End Wines love their wines. Whether it is a glass of wine to relax in the evening, or a bottle of bubbly to share with friends, wine is a big part of our lives. However, we also know there is a serious side to alcohol and that drinking is only fun when you don’t overdo it.
Units in alcohol
All you need to know...
Units are something that are often mentioned when it comes to alcohol, but what do they actually mean? In basic terms, units are a good way of measuring how much you have had to drink, and do help when it comes to making sure you don’t overdo it.
The size and strength of your drink will determine the number of units it contains. Sadly, this means that there is no standard unit number attached to every glass of wine. Below is a rough guideline to help you.
Your average glass of white wine will generally be around 12% ABV
125ml - 1.5 units
175ml - 2.1 units
250ml - 3.0 units
Your average glass of red wine will generally be around 14% ABV
125ml - 1.8 units
175ml - 2.4 units
250ml - 3.5 units
ABV is clear on all our wines.
Please enjoy our wine but drink it responsibly.
