The holidays have a funny way of encouraging over-indulgence. Wouldn’t you agree? We eat more, travel more, drink more, party more; everything seems to be in excess.
Our health takes a hit. We sacrifice our bodies for a few months in the name of celebration and good cheer. Then, we make the New Year’s Resolution to get back to our best health.
One of the main ways people over-indulge is with alcohol. Hard liquor, sugary cocktails, beer, shots, high alcohol wines - the world consumes them all. In England, for example, one study found the country consumes 12 million more bottles of wine per week during this festive time of year.
That’s a lot of headaches and hangovers. Plus, it feels like we’re cheating our healthy diets.
The holidays shouldn’t be a time for guilt or sacrifice. They’re a time for love and celebration! Alcohol can be a vibrant part of this celebration, but you have to drink the right stuff....
Low Alcohol Natural Wines
Low alcohol Natural Wines are the ideal alcohol choice to maximize the health benefits (like all those polyphenols!) and minimize the negatives.
Dry Farm Wines curates the world’s best healthy pure natural wines - all organic, sugar-free, natural, and low alcohol wines. They lab test every wine they import to make sure the alcohol content is 12.5% or less.
Lower alcohol wines provide the perfect balance between enjoyment and health without seriously damaging our bodies.
Another great part of Dry Farm’s philosophy is their health promise. They only offer wines free of sugar and carbs (less than 1 g/L, so statistically sugar free).
It’s amazing they’re able to find sugar-free reds and whites for regular drinkers. You can enjoy their Pinots, Merlots, Chardonnays, and more, all while staying on your healthy diet.
What really caught some attention this year is their sugar-free sparkling wine.
Bubbles are a staple of holiday celebrations, but they’re usually full of sugar. In fact, sparkling wine can have up to 50 g/L, which is like eating 2 teaspoons of sugar with each glass of wine (it’s because of the winemaking process, where many winemakers add sugar into the wine to trigger fermentation so bubbles form).
Without the sugar or carbs, you can feel good about clinking those bubbly flutes. You won’t sacrifice your health, and you won’t get negative wine reactions like headaches or energy crashes.
Food + Wine
Let’s talk about food and wine pairings for a second. We’ll be eating a lot during the holidays: homemade meals with family, dinner at your favorite restaurant with friends, and take out for those nights you need a break.
Natural Wine is the best wine to pair with food. It’s made without any additives or industrial processing, so it tastes vibrant and fresh. Much friendlier pairings with food!
Most industrial wine contains colorings, flavorings, preservatives, and other additives - there are actually 76 chemicals approved for use in US winemaking. And, wine labels aren’t required to post an ingredients list or nutrient facts, so we’ll never really know which ones we’re drinking.
Have you ever enjoyed a pure Natural Wine without any of this stuff? It tastes much different from commercial wine: it’s clean and crisp. It goes better with food because none of the additives (or high alcohol) conflict with the taste and subtle flavors of your meal.
Natural wine complements your food perfectly.
