It’s official: Americans like red wine better than white wine

All but three states—Nebraska, Kansas, and Iowa—buy more red than white, according to data compiled by online wine retailer Naked Wines. North Carolina, Mississippi, Michigan, and Pennsylvania are particularly fond of red varietals—the four buy red wine nearly 60 percent of the time, and white wine only 30 percent of the time. (The remaining roughly 10 percent account for sparkling and rose purchases)…

There doesn’t even appear to be much truth to the oft-mentioned stigma that men drink red wine and women drink white. Men might choose red wine more often than women, but both sexes actually tend to choose red wine more often than white, Master of Wine Liz Thach told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2011.
