Best Kinds of Wine

People enjoy drinking wine because it's relaxing, a great meal partner, and has healthy effects on the body. Before deciding what type or brand of wine to buy, there are some things that you need to know. Always make sure that you are buying the best bottle. Here are some things that you should check before purchasing a bottle of wine.


Most wines on the market right now are made for mass consumption, therefore making it more "acceptable" to general taste. When you are out searching for a bottle, be sure to consider its brand or type. In this country, a sparkling wine is usually called "Champagne". We all know that Champagne is a place in France where great sparkling wines are made. Good sparkling wines don't carry the name Champagne on their labels. So be sure to look for descriptions of this kind before purchasing.


Most starters like sweet wine. However, as you get familiar with the taste, be sure to try different kinds. The first thing that you should consider is the wine's color. Red and white wines have different tastes, and a rose wine has a whole different kind of taste. Aside from this, various wines can be partnered with different meals too. Wines have many different tastes and it's best to try them to find your favorite.


Although this has been a debate over the years, most wine drinkers believe that the wine's terroir has a great effect on its quality. Terroir is defined as the soil and the environment where the grapes are harvested. People believe that the wine's from well known terroirs are better than most wines produced in other places. So if you want to be more sophisticated in choosing your wine bottle, make sure they come from a well known terroir.


Visit your local wine shop and ask the owner about wine types that you may like. As you try different types, make a list of the wines that you find interesting. In this way, you will have your own 'criteria' and before you know it, you'll be an expert when it comes to your own tastes buds.

There are many things to enjoy when drinking wine, just make sure that you don't drink too much at a time. Although most wines don't contain great amounts of alcohol, it is best to drink it in moderation. However, the best thing about wine is that it is far more enjoyable than the other alcoholic drinks. So join the club and start drinking wine!

Always read a wine label.

Not all merlots, shirazes, and cabernets are the same. An Australian merlot will differ from an American or French merlot. Read up on winemaking practices around the world and learn the differences between wines and their countries of origin. But apart from the country of origin, also look for information about specific regions and vineyards. The more detailed information on a wine label, the better the wine will be. Of course, the better the wine the more expensive it will be and that is the final deciding factor.

In This Issue: Drinking — Still a Mixed Bag of Good and Bad By James LaValle, R.Ph, ND, CCN It’s always encouraging to hear that something you enjoy, such as a food or beverage, has exceptional nutritional value or prevents a disease. Recently, red wine and even alcohol, in general, have been headlines because moderate amounts of alcohol seem to be protective against heart disease.
