040225-2-k472-0010According to the latest sales figures wine from the US have for the first time sold in bigger volume than wine from France and now holds second position in the UK. Consumers increased the consumption of US wines with 6.1% over the summer. The increase was largely driven by good sales of rosé wines, in particular Gallo apparently. However, the biggest exporter to the UK is actually Australia. Vitisphere.com (Photo: of the US Embassy in Paris)

Comparing wines in these countries is as difficult as comparing wine in any different countries in general. Every country, or better said, every wine region has it´s own wine specialities. Be it white or red wine, it depends a lot on the soil, the sun, the humidity and rainfall values etc. It also depends on wine growing and wine making traditions, technologies used and quality standards.
