Everyone is known to have a little drink every now and then, it’s one of life’s luxury’s to just kick-back, relax and take a swig of your favourite beverage.
Now I’m going to ask you a simple question, are you a wine or prosecco person or even both? Me personally I prefer prosecco but that’s only because I haven’t explored the vast culture of wine.
Both wine and prosecco have history; Prosecco is an Italian white wine made up north of Venice. It’s made from Glera grapes although many other grapes can be included. Prosecco is a softer, less yeasty and sweeter version of wine, my opinion of course. Prosecco is a world renown drink and many events use it as the main refreshment.
Wine is made from a blend of three grapes, produced in the champagne vicinity of France. Here are 6 unique facts I’m excited to share about wine:
- Drinking wine can improve your romance
- Wine Names Usually Indicate Location or Grape Varieties
- The colour of the wine tells you about its geographical origin
- Women get drunk faster from wine because of their water to fat ratio
- Wine was discovered about 6,000 years ago in the Middle East
- Wine Doesn’t Make You Fat
Red wine or white wine!?
The main difference would be the colour of the grapes they use, also if they ferment the grapes with or without the (grape) skin.
Both red and white wine have healthy compounds to them, although red wine has been deemed to provide better benefits such as.
- Reduced heart disease risk
- Increase good HDL cholesterol
- Possibly slow down brain decline
- Better joint movement
- Helps prevent diabetes
- Extends life pan
- Possibly help with cancer because resveratrol has been studied to prevent and treat cancer.
I believe those are some interesting facts to know! Many wine enthusiasts take it to the next level by going to extreme lengths to obtain dated wines from centuries ago, this just shows how fascinating this culture is.
