Do these sentences mean the same thing?

A. The waiter poured wine from a bottle into her glass.

B. The waiter poured a bottle of wine into her glass.

Thanks!

    The second sentence says clearly that the waiter poured the whole bottle of wine into the glass. This simply does not happen.

    A bottle of wine is typically 75 cl.  Most people find that a bottle of wine will give 4 to 5 decent size glasses, or three big ones.

    The second one implies that the glass is large enough to hold an entire bottle of wine.  I would change B to 'The waiter poured wine into her glass'

    Yes, they do. Both mean the waiter poured wine into her glass.

    A would be the best choice, as B implies the waiter poured an entire bottle into her glass

    B would mean he poured the whole bottle into the glass.

    No. #2 states an actual quantity (and rarely is that much wine poured at once).
