White Wine vs Red Wine - The Wine Doctor

White Wine vs Red Wine - The Wine DoctorBoth red and white wines are made from grapes, fermented without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients. Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts produce different styles of wine.

Though, wine may feel like an indulgence, it has a slew of surprising health benefits that come along with it consumption.

Process

Red wine grapes are fermented with the skin on, which gives the wine its colour and provides beneficial plant compounds. Grapes for white wine, on the other hand, have their skins removed.

Nutrition

In terms of nutrients, red and white wine is neck to neck.  However, red wine has slightly higher levels of some vitamins and minerals. White wine contains fewer calories.

Ingredient

Many different grape varietals are used to produce wine, including Pinot Gris, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.

While red varietals are used to make red wine, white wine can actually be made from red or white grapes.  For instance, traditional French champagne is made with the red Pinot Noir grape.

Health Benefits

Red wine is known to be good for cardiovascular conditions, regulating cholesterol, slowing down mental decline and can help towards joint pains, diabetes and cancer.

Production

Many countries produce wine. Some of the main wine growing regions are in California in the US, France, Italy, Spain, Chile, South Africa and Australia.

While most regions grow several types of grape varietals, some places are particularly known for one or two.

Final Word

Red wine may be little richer in terms of nutrients; however none of the wines is significantly healthier than the other except for our anti-aging wine.

Drinking in moderation is the key to gain utmost benefits. Limiting alcohol consumption is always safe. Enjoy your drink, be it White or Red but especially the Wine Doctor Shiraz.
