Potential Growth:
Wine consumption in the United States has grown tremendously over the last decade. In fact the US has just surpassed France as the biggest consumer of wine in the world. Of the total adult US population, 25.4 million are core wine consumers (up from 19.2 million in 2001). Of this total, 15% drink wine daily, 48% drink wine a few times per week and 37% drink wine weekly. Marginal wine drinkers account for another 28.2 million wine consumers and 50% drink wine at least 2-3 times per month. Core wine consumers are primarily female (60%) and between the ages of 40-59. Marginal wine consumers are also primarily female (59%) and between the ages of 30-49. A majority of both groups prefer wine to other alcoholic beverages. 25% of men now report drinking wine more than any other alcoholic beverage, up from 16% in 1992.
