It’s a waste of money to open a full bottle of champagne for one or two people.
It goes flat and doesn’t taste right after the first day. Champagne splits ensure your champagne tastes perfect.
Want to give away champagne splits for wedding or party favors? Guests love to go home with a split that commemorates the big day.
But how big is a split of champagne? Find out how big champagne splits are and ideas for using them.
How Big Is a Split of Champagne?
A split of champagne comes in 2 sizes. A quarter split contains about a quarter of a bottle of champagne, around 6.3 ounces (187mL), or enough for a single glass of champagne.

How Do I Buy Champagne Splits?
A standard size bottle of champagne is 750ml. When shopping online, look for bottles that are 187mL for a quarter split or 375mL for a half split.
The bottles are labeled, corked, and decorated exactly like their regular-sized and magnum counterparts, so don’t depend on the picture to tell you that it’s a split.
In the liquor store, splits are easy to spot because they’re in mini-bottles that look just like the large bottles. Hotels often have splits in the room or bar for sale. Simply ask for a quarter or half split.
Warehouse stores like Costco often sell cases of champagne or sparkling wine splits during the wedding season and holiday seasons. These are usually half splits, enough for 2 glasses of champagne.
Some brands have canned splits of wine and sparkling wine that are designed to be taken to parks where glass is not allowed. We don’t like our wine from cans, but it works in a pinch.

Can I Get Splits in Wines Besides Champagne?
Champagne is only made in the Champagne region of France. It is usually your most expensive option.
However, you can buy a very similar beverage called sparkling wine in splits as well.
Sparkling wines come in all wine colors, and many are sweeter and more fruity than champagne.
Depending on your taste preference, you may enjoy a split of sparkling wine better than a champagne split.
You can even get splits of sparkling cider to enjoy with children and send home as party favors with non-drinking friends!

What Can I Do With Champagne Splits?
Champagne and sparkling wine splits are frequently purchased as party favors or wedding favors.
They are also usually stocked in hotels for guests to purchase in the room or bar.
- Place each split in a mini wine bag and set them out as favors
- Give splits away as part of gift baskets
- Surprise a friend with a half split on a picnic
- Purchase a half split for toasting a special occasion
- Have splits printed with custom labels for a major event
Having splits custom printed is expensive so most people make their own labels or bag and tag the splits.
