The American Wine Buyer
According to industry analysts, America will likely surpass France as the largest wine market in the world in the next two years. That’s partly because our population of drinking-age adults will increase to an estimated 184 million in 2010, and partly because wine consumption in both France and Italy is slipping. But it may also be that we’re truly becoming a nation of wine drinkers—wine consumption in the U.S. increased over 66 percent from 1993 to 2007.
