We all know them – we’ve even been one ourselves.
That person, come January, who swears off alcohol in a New Year, fresh start, liver cleansing, clean living kick. Yes – post-holiday restraint and moderation is a smart and healthy move. But – really?! No wine?! The thought to us always sounded a bit too – un-moderate. Wine, in many cultures including our homes, is a part of daily life. Grapes are key members of the fruit group after all. Numerous studies have shown that wine – in moderation – leads to a healthy, lengthy, and much more fun life. According to science, a daily glass for women (two for men) can keep your heart healthy, help you lose weight, reduce forgetfulness, boost your immunity, and help prevent bone loss. Pay attention all you January resolution makers – it doesn’t get much better than this.
However, what many do need to cut back on after a holiday season of excess is expenses. That’s why we've put together a Top 10 (and ties) Under $20, so you can boost your health, and your bank account, this month. Note the high proportion of wines from Spain, Portugal, Chile and Argentina on this list, all important sources of value for quality on our market.
