OIV no longer publishes data on wine consumption per capita, but it does provide data on country consumption (Table 35). The US is the world’s largest wine market, with consumption of 3,100 ML in 2015, up 1.0% from the previous year. The US is now the largest market by a wide margin following a steady decline in consumption in France over recent years, which fell a further 1.2% to 2,720 ML in 2015. France and Germany were equal third with a consumption level of 2,050 ML, up slightly from the previous year. China ranked fifth, with an estimated 1,600 ML consumed, up 3.2%.
