America and French Wine

Know this! For seven consecutive years, the Americans have been the number one wine drinkers in the world. Well, obviously! you may say. Since the French, traditionally caricatured as “connoisseurs and good wine drinkers”, have taken to brewing beer in their cellars, gardens, basements, stairwells, lifts, under their sinks, and even in their toilets.

How could you expect to hold onto the title and live up to your stereotype now? Let us forget for a moment then clichés about the children of Uncle Sam, drunk on beer, a baseball cap bearing the logo of the top local team clamped tightly on their heads… The latter, we should remember, along with their English cousins, are the biggest consumers of French wine and great connoisseurs of fine vintages.
