The U.S. ranks 3rd in wine

According to FAOstat, in 2008 the United States imported 831,788 tonnes of wine, or 10.22% of the world’s total wine supply. That is enough for the United States to rank third in that category. Germany ranked first, importing 1,366,340 tonnes, or 16.79%  of the world total.

    Sorry to be a troll, but according to the chart the U.S. ranks 4th in Wine, not third…looks like U.K. is third.

    You’re not being a troll, and I always appreciate it when people point out mistakes on the blog. In this case, though, you might be misreading the chart. The large purple chunk showing 33.17% is not a single country; it shows the total combined wine imports for all the other countries in the ranking.
