Who Drinks Wine the Most?
You might expect to find France, Italy or Spain on the top of this list but the right answer is not what you expected. The country with most wine consumed per capita, according to the Wine Institute is the Vatican. According to The Wine Institute, the population of 800 people drinks at least 54 litres of wine per year. That’s about 70 bottles per person annually.
But, surprisingly Vatican is not the only small country that consumes most of the worlds produced wine. Andorra – small ski destination located between France and Spain also stands for the country that drinks wine the most. Their annual consumption of wine is 57 litres per person.
The rest of the list goes unsurprisingly to mostly European countries such as Spain, Italy, France, Portugal and Switzerland.
