Let’s have a look at the glorious journey of wine!
Brief History of Wine:
Wine was first used by the Greeks when they discovered that a sweet juice could be obtained from fermented grapes. It was not considered to be fresh grape juice as they were all fermented. Greeks started to drink this liquid with food, and it quickly became a staple with all their meals. The rest is history as wine is now consumed in every corner of the world.
Wine as a food taste enhancer:
There are so many amazing and delicious recipes that include wine in it. Wine adds rich flavor to diverse ingredients and food recipes. Sauces are also made with wine to make yummy meatloaf, beef stew, and wine soup.
Health benefits of using wine:
Wine has antioxidants that are beneficial for the human body and protect cells from getting damaged by free radicals. Wine boosts the immune system and provides energy to the body. It can help reduce the risk of heart attacks, colon cancer, and cholesterol levels.
Wine’s benefits for skin:
Although wine is an alcoholic drink yet, it has many positive effects on the skin. Wine contains tannins and flavonoids which are essential antioxidants to fight the aging process.
However, we all know the dangers of excessive use of alcohol. Moderation and balance are important factors with wine consumption. Occasionally adding wine to wine glasses and cooking recipes can be good for your health, when used in moderation.
