Finally! Some good news on the food front: Red wine makes you live longer. Sort of. (OK, it’s not the wine but something in it, but why be picky?) Also in the news: socializing delays dementia. Probably, anyway. (Sometimes I wish these scientific studies were more definitive.)
Put these two together, and you get wine group. I knew there were positive things about getting together somewhat regularly with a group of friends where we theoretically learn about wine and most definitely enjoy the wine and socialization and good food that accompanies it.
Sadly, the founder of the group gets headaches with red wine, but she doesn’t let it hold her back. In fact, we’re going to sample organic wines this weekend at her house. Here’s a toast to friends, especially those packing red wines.
