Top 10 wine consuming countries

You would expect big wine producing countries like Italy and France to make a top 10 list of wine consuming countries per capita – but data from the Wine Institute of California also threw up a few surprises.

Wine figures

Despite remaining one of the top 10 wine consuming countries in the world, Italy’s domestic wine consumption hit a record low in 2013 with consumption per capita at its weakest since Italy was unified in 1861.

In the US increasing popularity of Prosecco has led US consumers to drink more Italian wine than the Italians.

While China was recently named the world’s largest red wine market consuming 155 million nine-litre cases in 2013.

According to 2011 statistics compiled by the Wine Institute of California, some of the biggest wine consuming countries are not those currently hitting the headlines.
