  • The USA, the UK and Argentina didn’t even make the top 20. How embarrassing.


    It is clear that Argentina will never make the list: when we have a 6-hour party with 30 people, we cut through many gallons of Coca-Cola, but only 15-20 bottles of wine.


    The UK? I don’t know what you need to do in order to take your place among such esteemed company.

    The US? I’m afraid we won’t make the grade unless the list makes a state-by-state breakdown, in which case Louisiana should be #1. Watch out, Andorra!

    I drink less wine in Argentina because it is stronger, less to my taste, and wine in hot weather makes you sweat!
    I am also a white wine person and whites here are disappointing, at least those in my price range.

    We were at a birthday bash last night for a long time friend of the missus. He's a well known heart specialist in the area so a few other doctors were in attendance, Your observation about the ratio of wine to Coke/Sprite drunk is spot on. The number of emptied soft drink bottles on the tables outnumbered the bottles of wine by 3-1. In Glasgow it would have been the other way about. ^^

  • Yes , I find it hard to understand.


    It's not a health thing as they all drinky coke and other sodas with loads of sugar.


    Very different from Uruguay where they all enjoy a wee drink with their food .


    In MVD it was fairly common to see people have lunch with a bottle of whisky on the table.


    This changed when the zero tolerance drink and driving rules were brought in a couple of years ago
