NDWD is criminally under-publicized. My local wine shop (and personal wine shopper) reminded me to step up and pay tribute.
We didn’t drink a drop today at yoga. Or at book group either. (I wonder if there’s a book group dedicated to reading wine labels? Hmm, transforming idea.)
At the library, I saw a sign that said Register here for the upcoming winebar. Well, I’m thinking, how trendy. Not quite. The signup was for ~ a webinar.
Wine tastes good. It’s food-friendly. And it’s good for your health ~ in moderation, of course. The benefits of drinking wine are not unsubstantial. A glass of wine a day has been shown to improve heart health (go HDLs!), reduce forgetfulness, help you lose weight, boost your immunity (hurrah for antioxidant resveratrol), help prevent bone loss and make you into an Olympic champion.
OK, maybe not Olympic. But the field is wide open for the DIY crowd.
So, go on, have a glass of wine tonight. What kind? Yale-New Haven Hospital recommends Cabernet Sauvignon, followed closely by Petit Syrah and Pinot Noir.
Uncork that bottle.
Swirl. Sip. Celebrate.
