Red wine is a constant companion of a luxurious event as good as a dull evening after a hard day’s work. Everyone has long known that alcohol has a devastating effect on the body. But not everyone knows that red wine is surprisingly useful, if you use it sparingly and consistently. According to the ancient Romans: «in vino veritas, et in aqua sanitas» – «the truth in wine, and health in the water.” This phrase just expressed their opinion: they emphasize the opposite effects of these two basic drinks on the human body. Many years have passed and, though wine intoxicates and uplifts mood, the opinion, what impact it has on the body, has been revised repeatedly.
