Italians drank a total of 22.6 million hectolitres of wine in 2012, compared to 29.0 million hectolitres in the United States and 30.3 million in France.

An online survey also by Coldiretti found that 32 percent of respondents said they only drank wine on special occasions, 18 percent said they would have one or two glasses a week and six percent said they never drank any wine.

"The wine sector has suffered the gravest crisis in the food and drinks industry in terms of domestic consumption but has become a leader of Made in Italy production by directing itself toward exports," Coldiretti said.
