It’s Friday and it’s National Drink Wine Day, two reasons to drink wine today. So, if you need an excuse to drink, now you have two.
Some would say, “Isn’t every day drink wine day?” However, for those that need to justify drinking wine there is a long list of benefits besides the simple pleasure. Drinking a glass or two of wine a day makes your heart healthy, reduces forgetfulness, helps you lose weight, helps prevent bone loss, boosts your immunity, reduces stress, and increases libido!
Wine has been produced for thousands of years around the world. From classical Greece and Rome to the modern day, it’s no wonder why the art of making wine has been perfected over the years. Evidence of the earliest European wine production has been uncovered at archaeological sites in Macedonia, dating back over 6,500 years ago! In China, traces of crushed grapes were also found that dated from the second and first millennium BC.
Factoid: There are over 20 million acres on Earth dedicated to growing grapes to make wine.
