Ranking world wine consumption by country, the US is certainly no leader. A comparison of the US with Europe reveals a wide disparity in our beverage choices. The statistics are from the Wine Institute.
Monthly Consumption per Capita
categories are similar (coffee, milk, juice, bottled water, liquor), Americans
drink five times as much soda and nearly twice as much beer. Europeans drink
three times as much tea (which, like wine, contains tannins), three times as
much wine, and four times as much tap water. [To put this in another
perspective, over the course of a year, the average American drinks only 2
gallons of wine, but drinks 20 gallons of coffee and 54 gallons of soft drinks!]
