As far as I know, a firkin is not a fixed amount, though it is always a large amount.  I have known firkins used to contain many things, but never wine.  Maybe wine grapes, but not wine.  I remember in the days before paper, our grocer would cut butter from a great firkin he kept in the dairy case, but the wine came from a cask.

Sitting on a sailboat in the welcome rain, you made my day.
