According to a quinquennial study made by FranceAgriMer,and published on November the 28th 2012, there are more and more occasional consumers: 45% (once, twice a week or more rarely). The numbers show a new decrease of regular consumers: 17% (who drink wine everyday). Also, the number of non-consumers is stable : 38%.
Nevertheless, 1 out of 10 drink wine at special occasions like weddings, 8,5% of those non-consumers drink champagne as they don’t consider it as wine. As a consequence, there are only 20% of real teetotaller and only 4% of those declare having a real aversion to wine, the 16% left don’t drink wine as they don’t want to consume any alcohol.
