Top 10 wine brands 2015

"Last year marked a watershed moment as the US overtook France for the first time to become the world’s biggest wine consumer by volume with annual consumption reaching 29.1 million hectolitres.

"That certainly helps to explain why US-based brands feature so strongly in this list and suggests that their dominance is set to grow. Indeed, recent IWSR estimates suggest that US wine consumption is due to rise by 11% over the next three years, growth that would put this market’s total at more than double the level anticipated for that former hotbed of interest, China."
