Usually we take articles and studies about a food or drink being bad or good for you, with a grain of salt (is salt on the nice or naughty list this week?).

However, a recent posting on the website MindBodyGreen.com has a list of 7 benefits of wine, a couple of which we really endorse.
#1. It’s Fun! - This is an obvious one. Wine is great at de-stressing and bringing about a little flair of euphoria but it’s also strongly associated with celebration, even if it’s to celebrate the end of the work week.

#2. The other one we stand behind is how it (re-) connects you to the land. Visiting the place where wine (or any food) is produced is grounding. It’s important to see and learn how it’s made. Wine making is ancient, artistic, and because vineyards are often labours of love you feel the passion that goes into the product.
