Drink red wine and live longer. Drink organic wine and help save the earth too! Organic wines are better for you as it is not only good for your health but it is very helpful to the Earth as well.
Many people know that red wine in moderation can be good for your heart and your health—a true anti-aging elixir—and when you drink organic wine, what’s good for your arteries and cells is also good for the environment.
Red wine’s health-enhancing ingredient, called resveratrol, offsets the negative effects of a high-calorie diet and has been shown to extend the lifespan in laboratory studies, as reported by researchers at the Harvard Medical School and the National Institute on Aging.
These findings may explain why French people suffer considerably less heart disease than Americans, despite consuming similar high-fat diets.
And when enjoying the vineyard’s prescription for health, keep the planet’s health in mind by purchasing organic wine.
Organic wines not only taste great, but they bring us one step closer to environmental health by eliminating the petrochemical pesticides, a family of chemicals that account for almost 5 percent of all uses of oil.
Fetzer is a big name in organic wines and stopping global warming. They began working organic crops in the 1980s, and today, they stake claim as “the largest grower of certified organically grown grapes on the North Coast of California and one of the largest in the world.
Fetzer also takes pride in running a climate-neutral company. Another well-respected organic winery, Frey Vineyards, is the United States’oldest (since 1980) and largest purely organic winemaker. Located in Mendocino County’s Redwood Valley in California, this family owned and operated vineyard also produces Biodynamic® wines.
Wherever you find your organic wine, remember moderation is the key. Drinking a glass of organic wine is a fun, simple way to help in the fight against global warming. Cheers!
