Wines served in Restaurants

Interesting tidbit......Did you know the top 100 list of wines served in restaurants iss dominated by U.S. producers, with most coming from California. There are also 15 wine makers from France, seven from Italy, two from Australia and one from Chile that were on the list.

The largest portion of wines consumed in restaurants sell for between $25 and $39 per bottle. Those bottles would cost $13 to $19 at retail.

Red wines outnumber whites by a ratio of two to one, with Cabernet Sauvignon edging out Chardonnay for the top variety. Pinot Noir was the second most common type of red wine listed.
