            American wine market moves into first place worldwide
Valley Vineyards in Morrow is one of 13 American wineries invited to pour wine at the “Celebration of the 80th Anniversary of the 21st Amendment — The Repeal of Prohibition” in Washington, D.C.

Fueled in part by the growth of the American wine industry, the United States last year became the world’s biggest internal market for wine, pushing France into second place for the first time. (Reuters

Wine consumption in the United States rose .5 percent from 2012 to 2013, while wine consumption in France fell nearly 7 percent in the same period.

Despite the overall market comparison, per capita wine consumption is still about six times higher in France.
