As I am enjoying a glass of wine this evening to wind down it prompted the question.

What sort of wine do you enjoy? If indeed you like it at all?

Do you think there are health benefits to wine as is sometimes claimed or not?

Does a glass help to chill you out or not?

Ahh, wine. I almost miss it. I have chosen to abstain on my path. However, when I did drink wine, I loved Riesling. Yum.

Tried wine of a few different kinds...never found one I liked.

Haven't had drinks in years but I do believe that there is enough info out there to say there are benefits to wine drinking.

I do enjoy wine...my favorites are Pinot Grigio, Merlot, and White Zinfadel

Yes, red wine, definitely...but in moderation...it's not an excuse to go crazy! lol

Does a glass help to chill you out or not?

It depends...sometimes yes, and sometimes no...I haven't figured out the secret to an always yes, though.

I loved wine, but I found at this current time it takes me down destructive paths. Once I have healed my soul, I'm cracking the White Zin back out

Do you think there are health benefits to wine as is sometimes claimed or not? I do yes.

Does a glass help to chill you out or not? No not really. Alcohol just makes me lucid (or excited )... but a glass or two is nice once in a while

I love it. I like most kinds, depends on the setting and pairing. I tend to prefer reds but ones without too much bite. My husbands favorite is Pinot Grigio or other sweet wines so we rotate back and forth. I DISlike chardonnay though.

Do you think there are health benefits to wine as is sometimes claimed or not?
I do.

Does a glass help to chill you out or not?
Yes, usually it does help me. I like to have a glass before reading cards, helps be get out of my own head a little.

Not a fan of wine. I don't seem to do well drinking alcohol. If I just have a beer in the evening I can't sleep and wake up with a terrible headache. It's just not worth it to me.

I don't like wine

I do love sparkling ciders though and even though it does not affect me like wine would, it relaxes me because its a reminder to chillax.

Moscatos and Reislings are my favorites. Red wines have a lot of good properties but like everything else it needs to be done in moderation.
