We're Number One!--By Some Measures

I see this proud nation has achieved an important milestone:

The U.S. passed France as the world’s largest wine-consuming nation for the first time, lifted by its larger population and an interest in wine-and-cheese culture among young Americans.

That's not per capita, however, since the average French citizen still apparently drinks more wine than the average U.S. citizen, so we have room for improvement. Drink up, people!

I saw this on Feministe, where Jill is taking credit for the achievement. She's going to have to share it with me, that's all I'm going to say.
