Red wine has been receiving so much press in the last few days. The fuss is about a natural substance called resveratrol that is found in the skin of grapes and red wine. Resveratrol offsets the bad effects of unhealthy, high-calorie diets. Everyone is hoping it has the same great effects in humans as it does in mice. To get the same results as the mice - you have to drink a lot. For example, a 150 lb. person, would have to drink 750 - 1,500 bottles a day.
This just makes us want to race down to VINO, our favorite Italian wine store to start stocking up on red wine. We suggest that you do too...their super knowledgeable staff always helps you to make the perfect selection. The link to the website is: http://www.vinosite.com. Vino is located at 121 East 27th St. between Park and Lex (closer to Lex). They have weekly free wine tastings.
Maybe we'll see you there! Let us know your fave Italian reds....
