Measures and Conversions

AREA
1 hectare = 2.471 acres = 10,000 square meters = 100 ares = 24 ouvrees
1 are = 100 square meters (100 ares = 1 hectare)
1 ouvrees = 4.285 ares = 0.417 hectares
1 journal = 8 ouvrees = 1/3 hectare (3 journeaux = 1 hectare)

VOLUME
0.75 liters = 1 standard bottle
1.5 liters = 1 magnum = 2 bottles
3.0 liters = 1 double magnum = 4 bottles
9 liters = 12 bottles = 1 case

1 queue = 2 tonneaux = 456 liters = 608 bottles
1 tonneaux = 1 piece = 228 liters = 304 bottles (Standard Burgundy cask)
1 feuillette = 1/2 tonneaux = 114 liters = 152 bottles
1 quarteau = 1/4 tonneaux = 57 liters = 76 bottles

1 hectoliter = 100 liters = 133.3 bottles = 11.1 cases

130 kilograms of grapes produce about 1 hectoliter of wine.
At a plant density of 11,000 vines per hectare and 8 bunches per vine yield is approximately equivalent to 55 hl/ha.
This is about 650 grams of grapes or half a liter per vine.
