Should You Drink Red or White Wine? (Infographic)

Don’t start weeping yet if you’re partial to a certain wine. If you read down this list you’ll see that one wine is truly the winner — but unless you plan on chugging the entire bottle — your wine choice won’t mean life or death. As far as daily intake, these numbers are not different enough to make a huge impact. However, for multiple wine servings and longterm wine choice, you might want to welcome your tastebuds to the dark side.

I don't drink, but when we were at my step-son's over the summer, his girlfriend had some wines. She offered me some, and I did try them. I did NOT like the red (not a clue what it was), but I did really like the white.
I liked it so much, that I ordered some through their website. It is a little expensive, but it is well worth it.

There are also non-alcohol wines. Ariel, Fre, and my favorite the german Carl Jumg wines. White, red, and sparkling.

Almost every state has wineries now. Not sure about Alaska. They're a great way to try a sampling of different wines, and usually the cost is a nominal fee for the glass.

Reds are the bomb! Especially paired with organic DARK chocolate!! But, during these warmer summer days, a good dry Sauvignon Blanc or Rose of Pinot N. are pretty wonderful, too.

All alcohol is toxic to the human body. However I am guilty of drinking it.
