Red Wine For The Winter!

Brrrrr! A pile of snow, a load of wind and barely any sun. That’s what winter’s all about – the cold! But, it doesn’t have to be, because you can drink your favorite drink and stay warm at the same time. Now that’s a win-win. Yes, so wine is great for helping you to stay warmer in the winter...but how? We’ll explain that for you right now. Red wine has a psychological warming sensation. You may be having a glass of wine and reminiscing on memories of the delights of the summer of on the thoughts of the steamy romantic situations and crackling fires that you usually drink around. That can influence the way that brain perceives your surroundings. Wine has a warming effect that is physical as well. The alcohol within the wine serves to dilate (or widen) your blood vessels. Those dilated blood vessels are pumped throughout the body and play a big part in the warming up of the body. Wine also contains tannic acid and histamines, which provide warming sensations to the human body. This is why wine is such a favorite within the winter months. It does a lot to help warm up the temperature of the human body in the coldest of winters. Try them out and see if they tickle your fancy.
