Red wine has been enjoyed throughout the ages. And recent research shows that drinking red wine may be beneficial in moderation due to its high levels of antioxidants-including a phytonutrient called resveratrol.
Because grapes are one of the crops most heavily sprayed with pesticides, choosing organic wine is good way to reduce your exposure to these health-harming chemicals.
