The article focuses on the growing segment of table wine in the U.S. In 2005, dollar sales of table wine sold in the food channel outpaced beer, with a growth rate of 8.7 percent. Studies reporting high levels of cancer-blocking antioxidants in red wine, along with what has become known as the French Paradox which is the attribution of low obesity rates in France to moderately high wine consumption rates have all influenced public perception of wine as a healthy beverage.
