National Drink Wine Day: who’s drinking wine?

Yes, of course EVERY day is Drink Wine Day, we know this, but just like every day should be mother’s day, or father’s day, or be nice to people day, we do have that ONE day to officially celebrate drinking wine. And that date is February 18th.

Here at Wine.com, we find it slightly coincidental that National Drink Wine Day should fall on the birthday of Wine.com’s founder. Fate? Perhaps.

So how much wine are we drinking when it’s not drink wine day? How about some fun stats (courtesy of the Wine Market Council):

– In 2014, 302 million cases of wine were consumed in the U.S.

– 40%  of Americans drink wine

– 30% of them drink wine more than once a week

– That 30% drinks over 80% of the wine consumed in the US

So here’s to the 30% of the 40% who drink the 80% – I think we all deserve a toast! Cheers 🙂
