NEW YORK (PRNewswire) — While wine drinking is not linked as closely to American dining and culture as it is with that of some European nations, most Americans buy and drink wine.

According to a recent Harris Poll of 2,056 adults, only 38 percent said they never buy a bottle of wine. And, almost half of U.S. respondents said they drink wine several times per month (48 percent) and more than one in five said they usually purchase four or more bottles of wine per month (22 percent).
