U.S. Surpasses France as Biggest Wine Drinking Market

Today's news that the OIV says that America's overall wine consumption is bigger than France's says something about wine today - but what, exactly?

I'm not sure, but it definitely calls for a celebration as the same news story also states that Americans wine intake has increased 17% from 2004 to 2011.

I've been thinking of what seems to be the right wine to drink for this occasion. Should it be a Domaine Carneros sparkling wine (French and American owned winery in Napa's Carneros region)…or a Paso Robles Rhone from Tablas Creek (the Perrin and Haas, French and American owned winery)?

Any suggestions?
