Have you ever made wine a part of an amazingly erotic experience? You should! Wine can dramatically
enhance a romantic interlude by reducing anxiety, lowering inhibitions, and ultimately spicing things up!
For centuries, wine has had a reputation of being an aphrodisiac. The word itself, comes from the name
of the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, and conjures up ideas of magic ingredients and mystical love potions.
Wine is particularly seductive because of its richness and ability to tantalize the palette. Try pairing your
wine with ‘love foods’ such as cheese or fruit, or even chocolate and your senses will thank you for it.
For years now, people have been asking what’s the real deal on red wine - is it really good for your health or simply a trend that more and more people seem to be catching on to?
Red is hot, the colour of love and passion and often used to grab attention. No wonder so many people are drinking red wine nowadays. Ok, seriously…The latest ‘talk’ about drinking red wine perhaps comes from the benefits of resveratrol – a key ingredient found in this delightful social drink.
Studies have shown that these antioxidants could help people keep heart healthy, helping to increase ‘good’ cholesterol in the body, which in turn can help prevent heart disease and protect the arteries from getting damaged. Even the Egyptians used it as an antiseptic. And today, people include it in a recipe for colds - hot red wine with honey and some chopped up, dried nuts, such as walnuts and almonds.
Try it! And even if you still have the cold, you would have had a glass of wine (smile).
So why all the hype? It’s simple. Wine and partying go hand in hand. You can’t have a social gathering without ‘bottled poetry’. Red wine turns every meal into an occasion, makes every table more elegant and turns every moment into a memorable one. But everything in moderation, for a drink of wine will enliven your mood but lighten your head.
So, depending on who you ask…it may be all hype for now, but as the hype dies down, the facts behind the benefits of these powerful antioxidants will soon be celebrated. So go ahead and have a glass (or two) of your favourite Red
