Hi and thanks for your question.

For a technical tasting, we recommend up to 2 oz (60 ML) of wine per glass, assuming the wine glass is a classical wine glass (ISO type).

Having sufficient headspace above the liquid allows the taster to swirl the wine inside the glass to enable a better perception of the wine aroma notes. If the glass is too full, one cannot smell appropriately.

This volume is also usually sufficient to evaluate and appreciate the wine attributes.

Cheers!
