Keep in mind the part of the world the (red) wine is from. All kinds of wine get you drunk my friend, but might as well do some good for your heart at the same time.

Those seeking a longevity-boosting tipple should turn their attention to red wines from Sardinia and south-west France, a study concludes.UK researchers discovered chemicals called procyanidins were responsible for red wine’s well-documented heart-protecting effect.

And they found traditionally made wines from these areas had more procyanidins than wines in other parts of the world.

The researchers believe the way that wines are made is the key.

In traditional wine making, said Professor Corder, grapes have a three to four week fermentation period, allowing for full extraction of the chemical from the skin and the seed.
