PARTYGOERS at Helensburgh's first tapas bar splashed out on a giant bottle of wine - so big they needed a stand to pour it.

The impressive six-litre bottle of Rioja, costing �160, was purchased on December 21 by a group of 20 Helensburgh businessmen and professionals.

Owned by Milan and Cara Nikolic from Kilcreggan, La Barca Spanish Tapas and Wine Bar on West Clyde Street also boasts a 12-litre bottle of Spanish wine.

Milan told The Advertiser: "The group came in for a festive meal and became the first to ever order one of our grande bottles.

"It was a beautiful bottle of wine which came on a stand to help me pour it."
