traditional two-litre bottle (GB)
bouteille contenant deux litre de vin (F)
bottiglione da due litri (I)

Especially in Austria, the popular name for a two-liter wine bottle, for the most part easier Wine (earlier table wine ) or country wine was bottled. It was especially popular in rural restaurants and taverns open bar used. This special Austrian bottle shape got a bad image over time. Such a wine was pejorative with "Dopplerware" and the bottle was more derogatory than " Magnum of the little man ”or“ Austro-Magnum ”. The bottle shape was therefore changed by more and more Austrian winegrowers through one liter bottles and the bouteille (0.75 liters). This is also influenced by consumer behavior (the amount is too large for small rounds for complete enjoyment). There was a certain revivial as a winemaker from the Weinviertel also bottled top-quality wines in such bottles and originally referred to them as "top-lers". In the meantime, however, this bottle shape can be considered irrevocably “dead”. See also under bottles and wine vessels and also Customs in viticulture,
