Pennsylvania Doesn’t Drink That Much Wine, Comparatively
We here in Pennsylvania may be lushes — after all, Philadelphia alone bought over $59 million in wine and $51 million in vodka in 2012.
But that really wasn’t that much: According to a report from Business Insider using data from the Beverage Information Group, Pennsylvania drinks just 5.6 liters of wine per capita — ranking it 37th out of 50 states and the District of Columbia on the list. Alabama drinks more wine than we do!
No. 1 on the list, at 25.7 liters per capita of wine consumed a year, is Washington, D.C. (Yikes!) No. 2 is a more reasonable 19.6 liters of wine from New Hampshire. Coming in at No. 51 is West Virginia at a minute 2.4 liters; your probable guess for last place, Utah, is No. 48.
