A Glass Full of Chemicals

I'm a wine lover. I love everything about wine! I love visiting wineries, learning how they are made, and tasting a variety of wines from around the world. I love the stories behind wine, and the uniqueness of every wine I encounter. I've visited vineyards in the Napa Valley, in the Texas Wine Country, in France, Spain and I have a trip to Oregon to visit the Willamette Valley later this year!

I believe that wine can be consumed in moderation as part of a healthy, happy lifestyle. Red wine in particular offers many health benefits, including antioxidants, boosting the immune system, reducing the risk of heart disease, and more.

Picture this: you are winding down after a long day, cooking your family a nice dinner and drinking a glass of your favorite red wine. Or perhaps it's a sunny day and you are outside enjoying a meal with friends and family, sipping on a chilled Rosé. Wine, like food, has a way of bringing people together, and often brings feelings of comfort, community, relaxation and fun.

But what if I told you that glass of wine is actually just a glass full of chemicals and sugar? You might not have such a nostalgic feeling about it!

The problem is not the wine itself, but the quality of the wine and how it was made. (Okay, and for some it might be the quantity of wine you are consuming... too much of a good thing is NOT great!).
