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'

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