Every meal deserves a good glass of wine

6 August, 2017

There is an old Italian proverb, ‘Nella botte piccola c’è il vino buono’, “Good things come in small packages”, a good glass of wine is a perfect example of this. 

It’s the end of the day, you’re enjoying a delicious meal at home paired with a smooth glass of Chianti. Wine is timeless, gets better with age, and is a great additive to an already delicious meal. It’s easy to forget about the drudge of the day, while kicking your feet up to enjoy a light, relaxing evening with your loved ones, or just to unwind alone.

Wine and Health Benefits

There is nothing wrong with having a glass of your favorite varietal in moderation, in fact wine has some health benefits.

Studies show that drinking red wine lowers the risk of stroke, heart disease, and aides against memory loss, to name a few. In addition to be an excellent compliment to an already delicious meal, a smooth glass of red or white can actually improve your overall health. 

Every meal deserves a good glass of wine.

What a ball! My colleagues and I took the Little Italy tour for our office party and a bit of team-building. We had so much fun. Our guide was amazing.
