Abstract : While Europe remains the region with the highest levels of alcohol consumption in the world, statistical data have recently shown that alcohol consumption has declined significantly in recent years, particularly in producer countries such as France. This transformation can be seen in particular in the consumption figures for wine, which are constantly decreasing. Commenting on this general trend, which has already taken shape for a few years on a larger scale, Guy Caro had predicted in 1987 that a "cultural movement is taking shape in the world.
