last I heard, the research was indicating that the health benefit wasn't limited to red wine. In fact, it indcated that ANY drink was beneficial. In moderation, of course. I think for women, it was one a day. For men, I think it's two a day.
No, you can't "bank" the un-consumed drinks. :)
(I just wish I could find a link to a report)
Much of a wine lover as I am (is this a legitimate sentence??!)
.......I would take the studies with the proverbial grain of salt.
Human beings are just too complex to come to these pat conclusions.
(maybe it was the Gauloises or better yet the goose fat!)
A glass certainly can't hurt you (at least there is no study to show this yet).
And wine opens the door to food, new friends and fun........
I believe it is actually proven better for mental health!
I would not scoff at half bottles--most of the really good stuff can be had in this
format. It can be a bit tricky finding a good selection but they are out there.
Also screw top wines--more and more fine wine is being bottled with these handy
There are some excellent wines available--even the French are giving in!
