America Is Now the World's Largest Wine-Consuming Nation

The US drank more wine than any other country in 2010! That includes France, which previously held the record. A record-breaking 330 million cases of wine were shipped within or to America last year; that's $30 billion worth of wine! And 61% of those cases were from California, so we're also keeping it close to home, too. Yay America!

While we still have a ways to go in terms of per capita consumption, this is definitely a step in the right direction. Good work, team.
