A Drinking Wine Artilce for Your Viewing

Be Healthy - Drink Wine!

Is wine good for you? The answer is, ?Yes!? There?s lots of research providing proof that there really are health benefits from drinking wine.

Flavonoids from the skins and seeks of red grapes are the key to wine being good for you. These flavonoids lower your risk of coronary heart disease by reducing your LDL or bad cholesterol levels. At the same time these flavonoids actually increase your HDL or good cholesterol levels and decrease the likelihood of blood clotting.

Scientists believe that there may be other health benefits from red wine. A recent study discovered that an antioxidant in the skins of red grapes, called resveratrol, may inhibit the growth of tumors in some cancers. It?s possible that resveratrol can help treat Alzheimer?s and Parkinson?s as well and new studies are on the way.

Are some wines better for you than others? Again, the answer is, ?Yes!? Researchers at University of California at Davis have concluded that full-bodied dry red wines contain the highest levels of flavonoids and provide the greatest benefits. The number one wine for supplying the most flavonoids is Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Syrah and Pinot Noir also ranking highly. Sweeter wines and white wines have less flavonoids and are less beneficial.

How much should you drink? Moderation is the key. Women should drink 4 ounces of red wine daily with a meal and men 4-8 ounces.

Pour yourself a glass of red wine and drink to your health. Cheers!

The truth on current fine wine prices

Fri, 07 Nov 2008 15:50:05 -0800
Have fine wine prices fallen? Yes. Prices of almost everything have fallen in recent weeks; fine wine is no exception. See the latest Decanter.com story titled "Fine wine prices hit new low." By how much? The article reports that the Liv-ex 100 Fine Wine Index fell 12.4% in October. Interestingly, that is almost identical to the median 13% decline discussed in my September 27th post, "Time to invest in fine wine?" and close to the 15% median price decline in sold lots at the October 25th
