Top 3 Reasons to Appreciate Wine

by Administrator10. August 2015 10:32

As UB 40 said in their song, “red red wine you make me feel so fine.”  We agree, but also wonder if they like white wine too. Regardless of preference, wine is something to appreciate for many reasons.  It’s hard to go in a gift shop without seeing the signs that say “wine a little every day,” or something along those lines.   That doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t put it to use for something other than drinking!  That being said, it seemed to be a good time to give our top 3 reasons wine is something we don’t take for granted

An obvious number one is for the the wonderful taste wine has to offer.  With so many blends and variations that are made today, there are endless possible experiences for your palate.  This is evident in the Baskets Gourmet Wine World store.  As you walk in, to your left you’ll find a great selection of wines, and one or two of our team members nearby at the counter.  We’re sure to carry some wines that many other stores may not have, along with some classics most people enjoy.  If you’re curious as to whether or not we have a particular wine you’re looking for, please don’t hesitate to give us a call!

The second reason we love wine is because of the flavors you can extract from it through cooking.  Learning to do this can really enhance the meals you cook and help you to create a variety of dishes in the kitchen.  Chicken marsala, seafood in a white wine butter sauce, the possibilities are endless!

Last but not least, wine truly does have health benefits.  According to food & wine, drinking wine (in moderation) can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, stroke, colon cancer, cataracts, and even heart disease.  They even show the evidence behind it for any non-believers.  It’s good to know that you can have something to drink, and have good reason to not feel too guilty about it.

For any of your wine needs, stop into our store to pick up a bottle or consult with our staff on recipes, and the wines that will best suit your palate.  If you're looking to give someone a gift basket we can consult over the phone, and we offer shipping/delivery in the US!
