That's a Lot of Wine!

In 2016 Americans drank 4.24 billion bottles of wine. That's 13.3 bottles for every man, woman, and child. I'm assuming some of those folks, especially the children, don't drink wine. That makes us #1 in total wine consumption, but not per capita.

I hope you did your part!

Behind the U.S. in total consumption are France, Italy, Germany, China and the UK. Nine countries have a per capital consumption of over 40 liters. The Vatican is #1. Europe is tops in per person wine consumption.

By state New England and the West Coast have the highest per capita consumption with the District of Columbia being way ahead of anyone else. New Hampshire has the highest of any state. California is seventh among the states, West Virginia is last.
