I have noticed in wine consumption statistics, that Baby Boomers (53-71) and Millennials (23-40) are the largest age groups for consuming wine. However, Millennials are on track to over take Boomers in Wine Consumption. Also noted, at 66% 3 of every 5 bottles sold in the United States are from Cali! Numbers to live by. However, I do digress. I am surprised because I have read that Millennials tend to consume more wine these days than before. Who Knew? Is this true? One reason suggested is they are now having children. Your thoughts.
I got into wine at the age of 30 following birth of my first child. I knew I’d be stuck at home oohing and aahing over newborn and then relative tedium of sitting around and watching him learn to talk, walk etc.
As long as my wife and I were home bound I decided to learn to cook. Fine wine soon followed. It took the edge off and just seemed like natural progression from the Coronas and kamikaze shots of my 20s.
