Wine In France

Regarded as the world’s premier wine making country, France produces eight billion bottles every year. Foreign wines get labelled according to the grape used.  French wine is identified by the soil on which the grapes are grown. The term “terroir”, often heard in conversations about wine translates, as the specificity of place.  This has come to include not only the soil in a region, but also the climate. This is why the same grape variety that is planted in different regions can produce wines so different from each other. 

Wine Health

Of course your doctor advises you to drink wine in moderation.  
Several human trial’s have shown moderate red wine consumption to be better for you than not drinking at all.  The antioxidants found in red wine lower incidences of cardiovascular disease, mortality, and type-2 diabetes.
