A loaf of bread a jug of wine and thou.
A glass of red wine is beneficial for type A.
I gave up drinking alcohol in any quantity a number of years ago but was glad to see red wine was beneficial for me.
Not having drunk for a number of years I found the taste of some reds was very overpowering and to the horror of any wine buff started to dilute it with water. I found a 50/50 blend to be very easy to drink and it took the sharp edge off some of the younger wines. I'm an avid reader of medieval mystery novels and it is a recurring theme in 13 & 14th century Europe the drinking of watered wine. This was in the days before vintage and storing of wine so was probably done for the same reason, to mellow out the taste.
In the cold of winter it is not all that appealing to come home from work and have a cold glass of wine so I've taken to giving my blend 30 seconds in the microwave. Instant mulled wine another popular medieval version of wine drinking.
What goes around comes around.
I'm currently drinking a Tasmanian Pinot Noir vintage 2001 which is an excellent wine but try my 50/50 tip at the next party your at and you can keep up with your mates or girlfriends all night and only drink half the alcohol.
