Anyone got an approximate figure for the weight of a case of six Bottles of wine please?
Excess baggage purposes. If checked along with, but not packed in your bag(is one rucksack plus one case) is it included in your overall baggage allowance?
Thanks

about 7-8Kg. Posher wine is often put in heavier glass bottles so be careful

Won't 70cl (per bottle) weigh roughly 700g?
Add on the glass, times it by 6. Maybe 5kg?
Only you can judge how much the case weighs.

I am sure that it will be included in your overall allowance. I do not see why it would ever be excluded

Thanks, do with a sack weight of sub 10kg I should be ok.

About 7kg. And while we're still in the eu you can bring back as much as you like and the weight doesn't count.

I'd be inclined to drink the wine before you travel; empty bottles weigh bugger all

Are you going to tell us what you've bought? Hope it's none of that godawful Gamay de Savoie.

Not always. Some Swiss wines come in 70cl bottles.

Just had a delivery of a case of 13 bottles from Virgin.

Total weight 16 kg including packing ie 1.23 per bottle*, so 6 bottles would be 7.38 kg Say 7.5 to allow for the packing.

* Bottles are 750 ml

Liquid headache. In that area, better get a nice Petit Arvin.. The Terroir Monte Rosa also has amazing labels.....
