I believe it does, I have one or two glasses of wine each night. I find it makes me relax totally and its my reward for having a productive day

I don't take any medications at all and eat healthily so a little wine is good, as long as its not a whole bottle in one night

I agree a little wine nightly is good and it does have a bit of health benefits. I am sadly and badly allergic to wines but if not I would enjoy a glass now and then also.smile.png

Red wine has a number of potential health benefits when consumed in moderation. The merlot varietal contains several vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The antioxidants in red wine may have heart-healthy benefits, in addition to the possible health benefits of moderate alcohol intake in general.

Health Benefits of White Wine. The study showed that white wine helped repair endothelial cells. An article from ScienceDirect explains that endothelial cells line your blood vessels, which is why white wine has heart protective benefits.
