I am admittedly writing this after having had a glass of wine, but don’t let that fool you. My adoration for red wine has been going on for many years now, and I thought I’d share with my fellow wine-o’s the top three reasons why I love vino.
- First and foremost, the health benefits and the potential to help us age better. Almost all the women I know who have aged wonderfully through the years are red wine drinkers. My own mother credits her excellent bloodwork results to olive oil and red wine.
- The state of relaxation that wine induces. People have their cup of coffee in the morning to wake up, and their glass of wine at night to relax. I’m a person who takes comfort in certain routine things I do each day, and the actions of pulling out the cork, pouring a glass and listening to it flow are very soothing to me.
- Sleeping well. I was just having a conversation with a family member tonight about how well she slept last night after having a glass of wine. It’s not at all uncommon for her to have disrupted sleep at night, and although she is not a fan of wine, she admitted how relaxed she felt afterward and the deep sleep she had.
