We all know how great a glass of wine tastes with dinner, or how it relaxes you at the end of a long workday. However, that glass of wine might also be doing other work behind the scenes – much more important work.

According to various sources, the health benefits that come from moderate wine consumption (moderate is defined by the American Heart Association as one to two four-ounce glasses per day) are undeniable. So, pick up your glass of Bishop’s Vineyard and read how it’s helping you thrive.



-According to a Finnish study of over 2,000 men over a 29-year period, wine drinkers are said to have a 34% lower mortality rate.

-A 16-year Harvard School of Public Health study found that moderate wine drinkers suffering from high blood pressure are 30% less likely to have a heart attack than non-wine drinkers.

-According to a study at the Queen Mary University in London, the tannins in red wine protect against heart disease.

-A study at Columbia University completed over an eight-year period found that the possibility of suffering a blood clot-related stroke drops by 50% in moderate wine drinkers.

-Researchers at Oregon State’s College of Agricultural Studies found that wine could aid in weight loss and induce natural cell death in certain types of cancers.

-And let’s not forget that buzz word ingredient – resveratrol – that has been popping up in health food stores across the nation. Resveratrol, along with other antioxidants found in wine, helps prevent damage to blood cells and is said to improve hair and skin condition as well.

We don’t think you need any other reasons to pick up another bottle of Bishop’s Vineyard today!
