Wine And Your Health

Wine in our culture has been coursing through our veins for a long time, with differing views on its benefits and draw backs.

For a long time there has been a general consensus that a glass of red wine a day is actually beneficial to our health. Of course, when one group of people say one thing, there is always another group who will oppose them, and so it is with this theory.

A study published in ‘Science Magazine’ carried out by Harvard Medical School researchers, has shown that the anti-oxidants in red wine specifically resveratrol, actually speed up the production of SIRT1 which is a serum that speeds up cells energy production to help block diseases. With this extra energy production comes the ability to slow down the signs of ageing, and it could also help combat age related problems such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Strokes.  Read more

Wine Country After Dark
A recent trip through the north coast wine region resulted in some great new winery finds, a couple of good meals and some wonderful wine country hospitality. We found our days full, but our evenings a little on the quiet side until we ventured 25 minutes north of Calistoga to the wine village of Middletown, in Lake County. Here we found what we were looking for.
