A Word on Wine and Health, by Dr. DiGrazia
“I believe that there are health benefits to moderate wine consumption and hope that in future years this benefit will be better recognized and incorporated into a healthy diet. In my winery business I have worked to make wine more healthful. We were one of the first wineries in the country to make a sulfite-free wine. We have also developed techniques to increase the anti-oxidant level of the final product.
As a GYN doctor and professional winemaker it has become increasingly clear that it is possible to compare the massive amount of literature and research in the two seemingly different professions. The comparison of health issues actually shows very little difference between the health benefits of wines with the health benefits offered to females by their use of hormones when indicated.”
