The United States is surpassing France as #1 consumer of Wine

Wow, in 2008, a UK research firm estimates that the United States will surpass France as the number one consumer of wine in the world.
Vin : la France va perdre son rang
Selon l’étude d’un cabinet britannique publiée à l’occasion du salon Vinexpo à Bordeaux, les Etats- Unis devraient détrôner la France en 2008, devenant le premier pays consommateur de vin.
La consommation américaine devrait atteindre les 27,66 millions d’hectolitres à cette date alors que celle de la France devait baisser à 26,9 millions.
Les professionnels du vin se félicitent d’une progression de la consommation qui devrait augmenter de 6,4 % entre 2003 et 2008. « L e monde va boire plus et mieux » , s’est réjoui le commissaire général de Vinexpo.
Au moins, il y en a qui ne voient pas rouge.

Break that down to per person consumption (I think, my French is dodgy at best) and we're still way behind.

Not that I'm not working on it

Geogre Bush is obviously drinking a lot of it.
