A. Australia

B. China

C. Argentina

D. South Africa

C.

Argentina places 5th behind the perennial trifecta of Italy, France and Spain, and then a distant United States.  In fact, the production of the U.S. and Argentina combined is less than Spain’s which is currently in third place.  Australia and South Africa, despite their relatively large land masses, come in at numbers 7 and 9, respectively.  Despite the perception that wine production in China has boomed in recent years, it still finishes in 10th place, perhaps because table grapes represent a significant amount of its plantings. The top 10 are:

Italy

France

Spain

United States

Argentina

Chile

Australia

Germany

South Africa

China
