Interesting facts about WINE. !!


1) Drinking red wine in small doses is better for you :

           It might come as a surprise, but several human trial studies have shown moderate red wine consumption to be better for you than not drinking at all. Why? The antioxidants found in red wine lower incidences of cardiovascular disease, mortality, and type-2 diabetes. Of course, if you drink more than you’re supposed to, the benefits are replaced by increased health risks. 

2) If a husband found his wife drinking wine in the early Roman times, he was at liberty to kill her. It was forbidden that women drink wine.

3) Young red wines are better for you than old red wines:

           We’ve been told for years that old wines are the best wines. It’s true that some wines taste better when well-aged, but when it comes to the health aspects of wine, old wine isn’t as good! Young red wines contain greater tannin levels than any other type of wine.


4) When at a wine tasting event, it is not frowned upon for spitting wine out. Take a sip of wine and hold it in your mouth for a couple seconds, then either swallow it or spit out. This is an acceptable way to know if it’s a good wine. A good wine will have a lengthy aftertaste.

5) Women are more inclined to the effects of wine than men. This is partly because they have less enzymes in the stomach lining that is needed to break down alcohol simply.

6) When pairing wine with food, the richer, heavier food go well with the richer, heavier wines. Usually red wine is served with the red meat. The lighter foods are pair with the light wines. White wine is served with chicken and fish. If you are looking to pair a wine with dessert, go for the sweet wine.


7) “Toasting” started in ancient Rome when the Romans sustained the Greek tradition. They would drop a piece of toasted bread into the wine glass to soften unsavory tastes.

8) Red wines commonly contain less sulfites than white wines :

          In general, sulfite levels in red wines are lower than white wines. This is because red wines tend to be more chemically stable than white wines and do not degrade as quickly.
