For the second straight year, the U.S. beat out Italy and France for the most wine bottles bought, a whopping, headache-inducing grand total of 4 billion bottles, or about one case per person.

But in addition to our case of wine per person, we're also throwing back a lot of other stuff in the average year. We each consume an average of 9.4 liters of ethyl alcohol a year, so we're doing pretty good, you guys!
