The article I based my calculations on was Mike Dunne's Sacramento Bee article linked in my previous post.
In that article, Mike claims that it takes 29 gallons of water to make 1 glass of wine. Let's say 4 glasses per bottle - that's 116 gallons per bottle.
12 bottles per case - 1,392 gallons of water.
500,000 cases - 696,000,000 gallons of water.
Oh. BTW, this does not include the 250,000 gallons of distilled spirits they are going to produce.
Sorry for the error. The winery would've thanked me.
