Numbers enjoying daily glass of wine on slide

THE number of French people who enjoy a glass of wine each day has fallen to less than one in five, a study has found.

Research for the Vinitech exhibition found that in 2010 just 17% of people drank wine on a daily basis, down from 21% five years earlier.

The number of occasional drinkers, those who enjoy a glass once or twice a week, rose from 41% to 45%. While those who never touched a drop of wine stayed stable at 38%.

Overall there has been a dramatic decrease in the amount of wine drunk in France, with figures from 2010 showing on average 46.6 litres of wine were consumed per person, which compares to a figure of 104 litres in 1975.
