Does cooking and marinating with red wine have the same benefits as drinking it?

I am not cognizant of the same health benefits, but if red wine is ingested in your digestive system, then you are consuming a food item/beverage that is either neutral or beneficial for you.

Also wondering if fruit wines, (cherry, plum), are as beneficial?

I believe it's the anthocyanins in the red wines that makes them beneficial, so it follows that wines made from beneficial fruits should be neutral at least, and perhaps beneficial. Plum, cherry, blueberry, elderberry, etc should make that list. I'd check to find out if sulfites were used, and/or added sugars or 'natural' flavors.

Having graduated from high school in the mid-70s, I have happy memories of drinking cherry kijafa. Nice to think it was nominally good for me!

Using wine as a marinade or in cooking doesn't change its status as far as I know. Heat will evaporate the alcohol to some extent, and adding in spices, herbs, oils etc will change the taste . . . maybe someone with more chemistry background will chime in here.

Cherry Kijafa SO did I
Actually I saw a newspaper article saying that not all red wines were created equal when it comes to health benefit...
I ┤ll see if I can find it. AS I recall some grape from Provence was far healthier than Californian and chilean wine....

All wines have naturally occuring sulfites from the wine making process. It is usually best to find a winery who uses the least amount possible to keep the wine stable. I know of one, Fitzpatrick Winery of Fairplay, CA. The wine maker personally told me that he uses the least amount of sulfites as possible and he even told me how many parts per million but I cant remember, I will have to ask my boyfriend. All their wines don't seem to bother my boyfriends asthma which is agrivated by sulfites since he is allergic to them.

I was just about to post the same question about cooking with red wine...  my religion doesn't allow alcohol, so I guess it's good to know I can make steaks with it.   Good 'ol forum.
