DC Ranks First in Wine Consumption

A wine blog crunches the numbers on which states consume the most wine per capita

A wine blog finds that the District of Columbia comes in number one in wine consumption.

The Daily Sip crunches the numbers and finds that the District of Columbia ranks number one in wine consumption, with an average of 6.6 gallons per capita in 2009. DC ranks above New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Nevada in the top five.

The Daily Sip writes that often greater household income correlates highly with increased wine consumption. The ten states—with the exception of Vermont—on its list of top ten wine consumers are also in the top 20 when it comes to median household income. The writer also estimates that because DC is home to embassies with plump party budgets, wine consumption may skew higher than it might otherwise be.
