National Drink Wine Day

While February 18th is observed annually as National Drink Wine Day, it would be a shame to celebrate only one day a year. Perhaps this day is just a reminder to drink wine.

Wine does have its benefits after all. Moderate drinkers of wine have lower risks of liver disease, type II diabetes, certain kinds of cancers, heart attack, and stroke.  It also can reduce the bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase the good (HDL).

Are you a red wine drinker or a white wine drinker? Did you know that the color of the grapes determines what type it is? Do you prefer dry or sweet wine? Do you like it chilled or at room temperature? Did you know that food can affect the taste of wine (make it better or worse)?

  2. Hope you can go back out to dinner soon. We go to a few restaurantd we trust very highly. We’ve also go to a few wineries when we could sit outside. Next time you’re in the grocery store, treat yourself to a bottle.

  4. How sad, Rolig. Our grocery stores can sell wine, beer, hard cider, and hard seltzer. We have to go to the distillery or the ABC store to buy hard liquor. Glad you are still getting your morning cup of coffee.
