Wine Consumption Statistics

World per capita consumption of wine.

The Vatican leads all nations with 54.26 liters. 

42.50 for France and Italy clocks in at 33.30.

In North America consumption unsurprisingly drops considerably. Canadians drink 14.75 while the USA (despite California vineyards) drinks less at 10.25. Canada's consumption, largely driven by Alberta (though Quebec spends more in total dollars), has been on the rise for a few years now.

As for grape varieties, Americans like Chardonnay and White Zindfandel (they really need to work on that).

Personally, since I couldn't find stats for Canadians (surprise) so I'll act as a barometer, I like cabernet sauvignon, pinot grigio, nebbiolo and syrah. Sangiovese (which makes up 70% of Chianti).
