Red Wine Quotes for National Red Wine Day August 28

If you’re looking for an excuse to pour yourself a glass of delicious red wine, good news! Red Wine Day is here on August 28th!

There’s no better way to celebrate Red Wine Day (and being one month closer to the end of 2020) than indulging in your favorite red blend.

Red wine is one of my personal favorites because of its many health benefits. Drinking a moderate amount of red wine has been shown to aid in staying heart healthy, combatting inflammation, and living longer. The occasional glass won’t hurt your waistline either, at only 125 calories per glass it’s much healthier than your typical cocktail.

Ever wondered what makes red wine different than white? It’s all in the grapes! White wine is made with white grapes to give it a crisp taste while red wine is made with red grapes for the bold taste we all know and love.

Red wine contains more health benefits over white wine because of its fermentation process. To make red wine, the skins of the grapes are left on during fermentation to offer an array of tasty benefits and create a deep red color.

Red wine also surpasses white wines alcohol content, coming in at 3.1 grams of alcohol per glass vs. white wine’s 2.9 grams.

If you’re concerned with carb consumption you may want to go with a red due to its low amount of carbohydrates. While both are relatively low in carbs, red wine has just four grams per glass vs. white wine’s five grams.
