All the signs point to continued rapid growth in US wine imports. Consider the facts:  Per capita consumption in the US increased by 5% between 2007-2010 (in the same time, France was down 3%, Spain was down 21%).  A growing and relatively youthful US population translates into increased wine consumption (up 35% over the decade).  Wine acreage in California has decreased over the past decade and grape prices are increasing [Wall Street Journal]. It all points to increased US wine imports. Currently, the US imports 31% of all wine consumed, and the import market share continues to grow.
