Wine Opportunity [If you drink wine, READ THIS!]

If you drink wine.  READ THIS.

Wine. I love wine. But should I drink wine?  Should I feel guilty about drinking a glass (or two or three :)?

You’ve seen the studies that show that wine is good for you. But you know alcohol is bad for you too. Hmmm.

  • Organic.
  • Chemical-free. Did you know that in the US winemakers can add up to 76 different chemicals to your wine during the wine-making process?!
  • Sugar free! Less than one carbohydrate per glass. Most wine makers leave lots of glucose and fructose (sugars) in the wine to make it real sweet.
  • Less than 12.5% alcohol. Did you know that most wine that you buy in the store is actually 7 to 24% alcohol?
  • Nearly sulfite-free. Always less than 75 ppm (parts per million) and usually less than 50 ppm. Most wines are around 300 parts per million as far as I know.  Less sulfites also means that more natural bacteria will survive (which is good).
  • Dry farmed 100%. This means that the wine is made from vineyards that use only natural rainfall rather than using any extra water irrigation, which is just plain a greener way to go.
  • No commercial yeast used. Only the natural yeast that actually grow on the grapes are used.

BTW, most studies actually DO show that MODERATE wine consumption is indeed a net gain for your health, including my all-time favorite – decreased risk of dying.  Now this means around 1-2 glasses of wine some nights (not every night) of the week.  1 or 2 glasses should be based more on someone’s height rather than weight, as unhealthy extra weight does not mean you get to drink more wine.

That was a great article.  I think I’ll drink to that.
