The US Census Bureau recently reported that Americans have increased per capita wine consumption to 2.5 gallons per year in 2010, up from 2.0 gallons in 2000. 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."
