Wine is becoming more "cool", and is associated with the sheek high class lifestyle.

Maybe it is. Not in my house tho! You gotta take polls like that with a grain of salt. But hey, alotta my younger friends prefer booze and wine to beer. Maybe it's the flashy advertising and things like UV with all their kool-aide goodness!

Irrelevant really as it's comparing apples and oranges. It doesn't indicate people are changing from beer to wine drinkers. It just more wine is now being consumed than beer. Winos for the win! Woopteefreakingdoo! (I drink both - just find it funny that someone is likely getting paid something to pull together this meaningless info)

They apparently haven't seen the videos with beer & food parings by Brooklyn brewery. They had wine too,& many a wine head has been converted. The thing is,wine "compliments/contrasts" food. Beer can "meld" with it harmoniously,being a food product itself.
