For example you take my 1 bottle of 2001 Masseto and it will for 4 people in 2015. Myself, my wife, my dad and his wife. Unless of course another couple travels to Louisville with a good vintage of Petrus in hand and it will be for 6.

+1. Everything except (a), depending on circumstance. I just can't see myself cracking a great bottle alone.

very rarely would a open a special bottle by myself and aside from 2 occasions never with * or more. ANd for the record what bottle do you drink with 2-4 people and have a couple of glasses of it? I answered b but ideally its 2 wine geek friends and I. A good friend of my enjoys wine, has a pretty good palette but has no idea about labels, prices, etc. I have slipped him some serious wine over the years without letting on and he often picks em out as being "on the spot"
More about who than how many for me I guess.
