Wine Time is coming up fast so, here are some benefits of wine to keep in mind while you're there.

Wine Time is February 1st at the Epic Railyard Center, 2201 E. Mills. (Directions) Stop in and sample all kinds of different wines, enjoy some snacks and more in two tasting sessions. An afternoon session from 2pm - 6pm and an evening session from 7pm - 11pm. VIP tickets available here.

Wine is actually really good for you so, you'll be doing yourself a favor by stopping in. Here are a few ways wine helps you from winefolly.com:

"The antioxidants found in red wine lower incidences of cardiovascular disease, mortality, and type-2 diabetes." That's thanks to things known as tannins.

White wines are good for you but, red wines are best. Again, thanks to tannins plus: "sulfite levels in red wines are lower than white wines."

That being said, some red wines are better than others.

  • Dry red wines are better than sweet wines.
  • Red wines with lower alcohol (preferably below 13% ABV) are better than high alcohol wines
  • Red wines with higher tannin (those that are more astringent) are better than low tannin wines.

So, there you go ... Wine Time, it'll be good for you!
