Our wines are the result of constant and careful work starting from the vineyards. We with our own vines that allow us to maintain excellence from the source. We manage our fruit to achieve the best result in the wine, which is processed in our warehouse that houses 3,600,000 Lt.
Our grape varieties are:
Drinking wine produced, to most humans, a real pleasure. For some time it is known that besides enjoying its smell, color and, above all, the taste, the precious liquid helps to improve health. The news came to light a few years ago, when it was discovered that wine works as a vasodilator and therefore helps to improve the work carried out by our heart.
Then the controversy arose How could someone were to advise the consumption of alcohol? Over time they have been discovered new benefits, provided that the intake is moderate. It is obvious that drink without limit is not good for anyone, no matter who says "is used," but a glass of delicious liquid burgundy "red is clearly the healthiest" in foods reduces the risk of heart problems .
Delay of senile dementia:
But that is not all. In recent months, research has gone farther than could have imagined. There are studies that say that there is an inverse relationship between moderate wine consumption and the onset of dementia, meaning that the wine is good to remember. This statement comes from the Pellegrin Hospital in Bordeaux, where monitoring was carried out around 4,000 people over 65 years.
Reducing the rate of Alzheimer:
He qualified participants in the study in nonusers, light, moderate and heavy users. Moderate they presented, compared to nonusers, a reduction of 80% in the frequency of dementia and 75% in Alzheimer's. The percentage decreased to 55% in heavy users and was lowered to 25% in light. The reality shown by researchers can not be explained by medical, psychological or social and family factors. Perhaps the reason is simpler and has its origin in the joy and pleasure that wine produced humans.
Also remember, with wine you can see more clearly provided that the amount of one or two drinks is exceeded during meals. Thanks to its antioxidant effect, broths can prevent the degeneration of the eye macula, a problem that affects quite often over 65 years. A study in the American Geriatrics Society, about 3,000 men and women aged between 45 and 74 years, says that seniors who drink wine have a 19% lower risk of developing the disease.
