Have you seen the articles (such as this one from @tastingtable) suggesting that red wine in moderation might lower your risk of contracting COVID? According to W. Blake Gray in @winesearcher, in a recent major British study, "The risk of getting Covid-19 was 10-17 percent lower for people who drink red wine. Unlike with other alcoholic beverages, the effect did not significantly diminish for people until they got above 14 glasses per week. This is good news!" We'll drink to that! 🍷

(Link to Wine-Searcher article in bio.)

The rustic tannins in some red wines, specifically those grown in mountain vineyards, have already been linked to health benefits via their polyphenols and antioxidants.
