I'm tempted to do what the article suggests and stockpile some of my favorites!

According to the report, the world’s total supply of wine barely exceeded the demand for it last year, and if you take into account non-wine uses, like making vermouth, there was actually a shortage of about 300 million cases compared to demand. That’s the biggest discrepancy of its kind in half a century. And the problem is only getting worse as the world’s consumption of wine has increased more or less steadily since the late 1990s.

So who are the culprits guzzling all this wine? You guessed it: We're drinking a lot of it right here at home. The U.S., along with China, has been drinking tons more vino lately. We drink 12 percent of the world’s wine in this country alone, and global production hasn’t been able to keep up.

Are you a wine drinker?  If so, are you going to join me in stockpiling up so you don't run out?

I'm sorry but I'm not a big wine drinker, unless wine coolers count, lol.  I do Bud Light most of the time.
