Wine education and the promotion of healthy consumption.

Alcohol gets a pretty bad rep in the press these days, and often with good reason. The abuse of alcohol is undoubtedly one of the most serious concerns affecting our society today, and it would be irresponsible to argue otherwise. But amidst all the noise it is easy to forget that moderate alcohol consumption, particularly that of wine, can be a positive thing.

Why wine in particular? Well, it has proven health benefits which other alcoholic beverages simply do not share. Many beers and ciders on the market today are more sugar than anything else, and while the rise in popularity of craft beers has resulted in better quality products, they still have little in the way of beneficial properties. Spirits, though they have their place, do little for the body or the mind.

Wine has been around for a very long time, and over those years has been the subject of countless studies. The positive effects of wine consumption are numerous and said to include the following - preventing cancers and memory loss, reducing the risk of dementia, heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. It is said to slow the aging process, and even prevent weight gain. How good is that?
