Kick Off Your Shoes And Relax With A Glass, Or Two, Of Wine
Nothing beats coming home after a long day of work and opening that bottle of rare wine you have not had the time to enjoy. And you can’t beat a delicious, but fancy, homemade meal with a glass of fine red wine or fine white wine, depending on the meal. It can add another layer of taste to a meal, like a tasty garnish. Ever since the discovery of wine in the Middle East 6000 years ago, people continue to buy rare wines for special occasions or just for the sake of having.
White or Red: What Is The Difference?

While red wine, if its name has not already given it away, uses darker grapes like red and black; the skin of the grapes are kept. The difference is really in its taste; white wines tend to have fruitier flavors while red wines are richer but somewhat drier. Regardless of the arbitrary differences between the two, what is clear is that research is showing a link between wine and the risk of an early death. Just two glasses has been shown to reduce the risk of an early death by at least 18 percent.
