The Wine Institute reports that Americans have increased per capita wine consumption to 2.83 gallons per year in 2015, up from 2.01 gallons in 2000--and 0.26 gallons in 1934! Good news, but that's still less than 1 oz of wine per day. Surely we can do better than that! Wine Gems is here to steer you in the right direction! "Life's too short to drink cheap wine."
