Health and Wine

Does wine in moderation have an affect on health? For those who believe that wine has a negative effect or no affect on one’s health, it should be noted that North Carolina’s Department of Commerce website has added an article “Wine and Health.” The article also includes a link to M.D. News’s article “The Health Benefits of Muscadine Grapes, Wines and Nutraceuticals.” The wineries in North Carolina’s Piedmont and Coastal regions are serious about the wines they produce including the Muscadine grape wines. The climate along the coast and south is perfect for growing Muscadine grapes.

While positive and negative wine health news can be found to substantiate the pros and cons of drinking wine, as wine lovers it’s heartening to know that a state is confident enough to post about the positive effects of drinking red wine in moderation. If you are interested in more information about wine consumption and health check out the Wine Institute’s article.

    Kathy, thanks for your mention about the health benefits of our NC wines! I wanted to be sure that you knew about our new wine web site, perfect for the traveler….www.VisitNCWine.com. You’ve seen that URL before, but now there is a whole new site under it with excellent mapping capabilities. You’ll see how truly widespread our wineries are across the state. If you go to VisitNC.com and search “wine itineraries,” you’ll find some nice driving routes for touring and exploring. Thanks for all you do! –susan dosier/ north carolina tourism pr team
