The world’s wine consumption has grown a tiny little bit in 2017

IWSR, an English company specializing in market research in the beverage industry, has published figures for global alcohol and wine consumption in 2017. Total alcohol consumption increased very modestly by 0.01%, but as it decreased in 2016, this small increase is still positive for the industry. It was mainly wine and cider that accounted for the increase.

Wine increased by 0.5%. The countries where wine consumption increased the most were Italy, Russia and the United States. The figures for Great Britain showed a slight decreased except for sparkling wines. And the French apparently drink more and more beer.
