What if there was a way to lower risks of liver disease, type II diabetes, certain kinds of cancers, heart attack, and stroke. At the same time what if doing this one thing you would be reducing the bad cholesterol (LDL) and increasing the good (HDL). Would you do it? Okay what if I was making reference to drinking wine? Yes! Wine provides all those benefits when we drink it in moderation. The real question is who would you be to deny yourself of that kind of self care and medicinal pampering? The good news is that today is National Drink Wine Day and Idaho has some great local wineries that you can and should support on this national holiday. Here are 5 Wineries to visit on National Drink Wine Day.
