We are in the midst of the world’s greatest soccer tournament, but we have a different type of score to settle: #TeamRedWine vs #TeamWhiteWine. We know there are strong feelings about one or the other, so today is the day they go up against each other. What team are you on? Watch the comments on Facebook today, you will ultimately decide.
#TeamRedWine. Red wines are the preferred choice in countries like Italy and France. These wines have rich flavors due in part to the dark red and black grapes, including their skins. In fact, the antioxidants found in the skin gives this variety heart-healthy qualities. The most popular reds are Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Syrah and Zinfandel.
#TeamWhiteWine. Most white wines have a light and fruity taste, but there are other varietals with a richer flavor. Just to name a few – Champagne, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier – are familiar types of white wines. Did you know that Champagne has been found to be as beneficial as cocoa?
