The theory for the increase, which began in the early 90s, is all because of the recommendation that wine in moderation is healthy for you. And Americans really took it to heart.

However, this trend is actually probably much higher, as they took the statistic by the entire population, not just the 21+ numbers. Take a look for yourself:
