Wine is a history-laden drink. It was first mentioned 4000 years B.C. in Ancient Egyptian tombs. Hippocrates was the first one to extol the medicinal properties of wine, 4 centuries B.C. But he also wisely specified that „ wine drunk in excess led to harmful effects on health, just like love“.

Did you know?…
You’ve probably heard about the “French paradox” before, haven’t you? But do you really know what it means? In short : the French who are widely known as “bon vivants” and delicatessen enthusiasts, are also wine drinkers, which decreases their risk of getting cardicvascular disease.
This is due to high concentrations of antioxidant polyphenols found in wine tannins, that contribute to lowering harmful LDL cholesterol levels.
It has moreover been demonstrated that consuming wine moderately also offers protection against Alzheimer’s disease.
However, it would be more appropriate to talk about the “mediterranean paradox” rather than the French one, as wine certainly isn’t the only element contributing in decreasing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Eating fruits, vegetable and fish also plays a significant role in staying healthy.
