A global wine shortage has Twitter users fearing the worst, and according to a report from Morgan Stanley Research, there was an undersupply of nearly 300 million cases in 2012.
Compared to a decade prior, there was an oversupply of 600 million cases.
Typically, a standard case contains 12 bottles of wine. This means that in 2012, there were around 3.6 billion less bottles of wine floating around.
However, although wine consumption has surpassed production, Morgan Stanley Research says there may be difficulty supplying demand “in coming years.”
Wine lovers should be okay for the time being, and they were quick to share their thoughts on Twitter:
The possible wine shortage probably has to do with my mother. No really I don’t doubt she drank most of it…

There’s a global wine shortage, and I, for one, cannot wait to watch our nation’s soccer moms come completely unglued as a result.

This global wine shortage is the scariest thing since Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance.

While a wine shortage is very real, at least we’ll still have beer and whiskey.
