The article focuses on the health benefits of red wine. The author reports that sales of red win surged after positive media coverage reported on two red wine-positive studies in November 2006. The two studies, which were conducted by the Harvard Medical School and the National Institute on Aging, focused on the possibility that resveratrol, a substance in red wine, might slow down the aging process. The article reveals that in the 20 weeks following the reports, red wines accounted for almost 53% of table wine dollars spent, while retailers saw dollar gains of 8.5%.
