A wine decanter 2008-12-10
From Suzanne:
I am trying to buy a wine decanter for my dad for Christmas. One big problem I am having shopping online is finding the right size. Wine is sold by metric ml, with a standard bottle holding 750ml of wine. Decanters are measured by oz, and the sizes are all over the place, with one site alone having sizes 25oz, 26 1/2oz, 50oz, 59 1/8oz, and 68oz.

Can you help me with metric conversions so I can figure out how much wine these decanters hold? Like everybody else, I need this as soon as possible so I can get it shipped in time for Christmas. (I'm disabled & don't drive, so online shopping is my only way to get gifts.)

Thanks for your help!
