Lover of Red Wine? Here are some reasons to enjoy your glass!

Red wine is loved by all! And if you have been a lover of this amazing drink, here are some healthy reasons to have a glass:

Keep Depression Away

Red wine is the best treatment for depression. However, if you wish to have a glass for dinner, just go for it. All you need to do is make sure you don’t overdo it. Two drinks a day are enough to enjoy the benefits.

Lower your Cholesterol

Red wine (Rioja) is made of high-fiber tempranillo red grapes. The element has a significant effect on cholesterol levels. It decreases level of LDL, or “bad cholesterol. Apart from lowering bad cholesterol, polyphenols, the antioxidants in red wine will keep blood vessels flexible and reduce the risk of clotting.

Blood Sugar Control

It is said that skin of red grapes are a rich source of red wine’s natural compound resveratrol. This may actually help diabetics to regulate their blood sugar. According to a study, resveratrol reduces blood glucose levels and decreases total cholesterol and systolic blood pressure.

Brain Boosting Factor

Resveratrol in red wine is the key element that keeps your memory sharp. It hampers development of beta-amyloid protein, a key ingredient in the plaque usually found in the brains of people suffereing from Alzheimer’s.

Prevents Cold

Hate getting sick? The antioxidants in red wine will help you stay healthy. Studies have revealed that regular wine drinkers have greater immunity against cold. The antioxidants are believed to fight infection and protect cells against bad effects of free radicals.

Cancer Prevention

According to researchers conducted by University of Virginia, the resveratrol in red wine you derive from drinking a glass of red wine at least three to four times in a week. It is adequate to starve cancer cells. Resveratrol inhibits key action of cancer-feeding protein.

Helps Lose Weight

Resveratrol is full of health giving compounds. Red wine is rich in resveratrol and piceatannol, a chemical compound human bodies convert from resveratrol. This compound prevents growth of fat cells. Researchers have also revealed that piceatannol binds to the insulin receptors of fat cells that essentially block the pathways responsible for immature fat cells to mature and grow. Therefore, it helps you stay slim.

With so many benefits of having red wine, there’s no reason you should feel guilty about having a glass of two!

To be honest, I have never liked wine. But one fine day, my husband introduced me to Twisted River. It is a Riesling. It is sweet and very affordable. Deer Creek is anther variety I have started liking recently. You can get it from local wineries. It is sweet in taste and very grapie. If you are still having trouble, it is best to visit a local winery in your area. They usually have wine tastings. It may help you to find what you really like and dislike. Hope this helps.

Try lambrusco. This is a soft red wine variety and not as bitter as most wines.

For beginners, nothing tastes better than Mad Dog 20-20. You may even give Boone's Farm a try.

Hey, I’ll advice you to choose a red wine. The Flamingo wine is the best. Good Luck!

I would recommend White Zinfandel!


Simarjeet Singh

Sutter Home or Berringer White Zinfadel are the best choice for beginners. I wasn't much of a wine drinker until my sister got me to try the White Zinfadel. Sutter Home is good, but Berringer is better.


Sahej
Sahej

Do try a white wine. Vandage or a Zinfandel will do better. They are a bit sweet especially if you have them with with dessert or fruits.


Ankita Pukhariyal

Dint mind, but I feel like laughing hard at you. And that’s what probably your hubby dear will be doing in a few years; laughing at you and beating you and while you have a hard time getting off the stuff and coping with life. I am telling you this with the experience I had in mu life. So never start off with a crap like Arbor Mist. Don’t listen to what others have to say. Taste your wine, have experiences with them and decide on the best for you.


Advika Verma
Advika Verma

White wine is not as bitter as you imagine it to be. You have to pick the label that you like. I have found out the more expensive doesn't always taste better. And yes, Arbor Mist does have white wine try theirs first.


Ajaipreet
Ajaipreet

If you really think you'll like reds, go for one. These are full bodied and offer a lot of flavour. I personally like Pinot Noirs and Shiraz. I like the Australian version too. So give them a try.


Amrita Gill
Amrita Gill

Do you prefer sweeter than dryer? If so, try a Riesling or a Gewurztraminer (German wines). They are white and have a sweet taste. If you think you will like dry, and like white wines, try an Australian Chardonnay like Lindeman's or Alice White. You could also try an Sauvingon Blanc- they have a melon taste or sometimes a grassy taste to them. Don't let that scare you. Sauvingon Blancs- especially from New Zealand are great! Try Monkey Bay. These wines go well with salads and pastas with white sauces.


Abhilasha
Abhilasha

German Riesling is a fabulous option! It is fruity and make for a wonderful dessert wine.


Eesha
Eesha

Rieslings have nice fruity wines. The best part is that they are without all the dryness of other whites. Strictly avoid darker wines until you develop a sense for what you actually like. I started off with the whites and finally moved to the reds. Yeah, after all the tasting and trying, this is where I am now - the Riesling!


Laksha
Laksha

Go for shaken (not stirred) vodka martini.


Bidisha
Bidisha

Why not try a White Zinfandel. If that is too dry (not sweet enough) you might try Mogen David Concord, gawd I love that stuff, and for a really cool sparkly adventure you really should try Spumanti. I guarantee you will love each one of these and don't listen to your husband when it comes to your taste. If you enjoy Arbor Mist you should and you just tell him with a stern look on your face, don't smile, to stick it in his ear!


Aadhya
Aadhya

Try Tears of Dew. It is made from Paso Robles. And trust me, it is really good!

Start having more, different varieties of wines. Believe me...it works!

I was in the same position. I only drank white wines until I got married. Then my hubby convinced me to try some red. Although I still have trouble with the deeper reds such as Cabernet but I have found that I can tolerate and even enjoy some Pinot Noirs. Blackstone Merlot is another red wine variety that I really like. It's really smooth. For a starter, I would strongly recommend a lighter, sweeter wine such as Chateau St. Michele Reisling. Why not visit some vineries that offer free tasting services?

Ever thought of joining a wine club? They usually mail you two bottles a month. This is certainly a fabulous way of trying new varieties and developing taste for them.


Shilpa

Find a wine tasting class. These are regularly run at one of the wine stores. My husband was an avid beer drinker. But soon after visiting a vineyard he's acquired a taste for some varieties. So if you really wish to know about the type you’ll like, taste a few ones. This is a wonderful option as you can get to know about a number of varieties without having to buy a whole bottle or whole glass. The process saves money too!


Bharti
Bharti

My personal favourite is Beringer Blush Zinfandel. It is easy on the pallet and wallet too ;) The best part is that the variety compliments a number of different foods. It has both a fruity and tart taste. So if you are looking for a lighter yet complex variety, this is the one you should go for!


Mitali
Mitali

Give up the idea. Why drink something you don't like? You can impress your husband with many other creative options!


Esha Sukhani
Esha Sukhani

Women usually enjoy a White Zinfandel. This is a blush colored wine with a hint of sweetness and has a fruity (similar to raspberry) flavour. It is inexpensive and has won a number of awards. Make sure you serve it chilled.


Savitri
Savitri

Try a Chardoney. I was never really a wine drinker until I met my boyfriend. That is light and has a less bitter taste to it. It is a white wine. You might also want to try a Rose. Meet a wine expert at a store and gain some knowledge about wine. Castle Rock is good. It is inexpensive and has a nice flavour.


Ankita Mishra
Ankita Mishra

I recommend Boone's Farm wine. I don't think it tastes like all the other dry bitter wines. You can pick from a range of flavours such as apple, berries and so on.


Shivani
Shivani

I suggest red wines such as Merlot, Shiraz or a Cabernet. These are smooth wine categories. I abhor Arbor Mist or Zifindal. They are loaded with sugar and the taste is very sweet. Hope the information helps.


Neelima Singh
Neelima Singh

Beringer White Merlot (Reserve) is a good option for women. It is sweet and decent enough for women. It has a punch but definitely not overpowering. It tastes really well with chicken, steak, and fish. You must try it. It's great!


Angel
Angel

White Zifandel was the first ever I tried. There are a lot of other brand names that make it. I don't recommend Arbor Mist. Zinfandel is light and easy going down. I simply love it. It imparts a feel good factor sans the hangover. Enjoy!


Silky Sharma
Silky Sharma

None! I hate wine!


Rohini

I recommend some South African wine if you can get your hands on it. Because of politics at the time, it was much superior to what would have been expected for the price I paid for it.


Shreya Sharma
Shreya Sharma

Night Train or Wild Irish Rose are the best options for beginners.


Jwala Kaur
Jwala Kaur

Mad Dog 20/20 is good. You may even try Boones Farm. These are affordable options for starters.


Neetu Agrawal
Neetu Agrawal

Try a white Shiraz. My vote goes for it. It is available in pink colour and quite similar to a Rose. A Chardonnay is also good. Try tasting a few before you buy your bottle. And don’t believe on the tales of rules for wines such as white for fish and poultry and red for meat. I don’t really find any logic in these tales. Just buy what you enjoy and this is what most wine lovers do!


Pari
Pari

Gallo, Grenache or White Zinferdel are great choices for starters. They taste heavenly when serve strictly chilled. These offer a fruity taste you'd be really suprised how quick you get through it. I first tried 'Segada' the Ribatejano Red variety. It was "heavy" but very drinkable and mature. The trick is to enjoy your glass regardless of what you buy.


Kavya Shah
Kavya Shah

Try something between red and white. Rose is the only thing that comes to mind.


Radha Sharma
Radha Sharma

Richards Wild Irish Rose is a fabulous choice.


Neetu Sharma
Neetu Sharma

Since you are a beginner, I think a sweeter wine will suit you the best. Try a Zinfandel. Most beginners have loved it. And there’s nothing as the ‘best’. The best is one that tastes good to YOU!


Divyani
Divyani

Assuming you can spend a lot, I would suggest you to stick with Cabernet Sauvignon; especially Kendall Jackson, Stag's Leap or Mondavi for red wines. You may even try a Spanish wine - Marques De Caceres Crianza Rioja. Wilson Zinfandel, the red wine is what I love. If you wish to try white wine, Pinot Grigio Santa Marguerita, the Italian variety is the best.


Prachi Mathur
Prachi Mathur

I like Rose. White Zinfandel is nice! I also like Blossom hill. In fact, I am an ardent wine lover! ;)


Neetu Gurjar
Neetu Gurjar

If you want to really get drunk, then I would suggest Sangria, a Spanish red wine. You can also try any grapes juice, otherwise. There are plenty of Romanian wines to try out. I can recommend you some. But the best way is to find out one yourself after trying a few!


Aradhya Sen
Aradhya Sen

If you really wish to drink wine for good taste and enjoyment I would suggest you to go for four different wine which are the best in taste. Some of the best ones include Satori wine manufactured by Sula Wines, Shiraz wine manufactured by Sula Wines, Blush Zinfindel wine manufactured by Sula Wines, and Shantili merlot wine manufactured by Indage Wines.
I can bet you will like one of these wines for sure. And yeah…please please let me know which one did you like. All the best and have a great great time with your hubby!


Sanajna Yadav

Get some cheap wine that comes in a jug at supermarkets. It's usually sweet. Put it in an expensive wine bottle. Poor it in a glass and drink it in front of your husband, but say it's just for you. Enjoy.

It's all about the grape and the juice. Also the variety as in; white or red? For a white I would you to try a Muscadet. A Sauvignon Blanc will also do if you like dry. If you are a sweet person, a Spatlese will be your choice. Merlot, Grenache or a Syrah are great choices for white wine.

Learn and master the art on your own as it takes a lot of learning. It is all about teaching your palate and awakening your senses. Subscribe to some Food & Wine magazines as they have info on the best wines. You can surprise your husband by taking him to a wine tasting, you both will love it. All you need to do is a little homework. Forbes magazine also has a special package for beginners, it's quite nice, it's a pack of 6 nice bottles, I don't think they are expensive.

How about a German Riesling? There are different kinds of this white wine. Some are sweeter than others. The best thing you can do is go to a wine cellar and try different ones to see which flavor your palate!

Try a rose'. They're sweet enough to drink. You can have them with anything. Or perhaps something like a Verdhelo or frontignac. Structly avoid Cabernet Savignon at all costs until you actually like wine.

White bordeaux is good. Try out the sweet and not so dry variety. Don’t remember the name though! 


Tanya Sachdeva

Don't ever drink Arbor Mist! I just gate it and many women across the globe would do so. Any Charles Shaw variety will do. Try whites before reds if you are new to wines. I would also suggest Pinot grigio or Asti varieties.


Monika Bhatt
Monika Bhatt

White Zinfindel is good. I’m not much into wine but really have some of my favourites including Madeira (sweet), Reisling (sweet), Gewurztraminer (sweet), muscat (somewhat sweet), and Kir (sweet).


Sanjana Gautam
Sanjana Gautam

Pinot Grigio, a white wine variety is a greatoption. It is a little on the sweet side. If your hubby is into a lot of reds, try a red with him try this Argentinian wine called Crios. It's a Syrah-Bonarda. And don’t even think of Arbor Mist!


Somi Chatterjee
Somi Chatterjee

None! Alcohol is a poison. And why try if you dint like the taste in the first place? If you feel guilty about nit impressing your hubby by drinking wine, go for any light wine Zinfandel or a may be Rieslings fruity or Oporto. Medeira, Chambord or Brandies on ice or even a glass of Champagne is a great option. These are light and taste good.


Natasha Saini

New wine is the best option! Try it for my sake!!

Go to a shop that offers cherry wines. These are not overwhelmingly sweet. Remember that the good wine is made from locally grown fruit.


Natasha Malhotra

Rosemount Shiraz is the best!


Varsha Dixit

White Zinfandel is the right choice for you.


Sonali

My style is different. I buy small samples of different varietals. This helps me get an idea of what they are like. You may even try a Coppola Rosso. This is a good mix. And it costs less. White wine is a little easier to start with. Since it is served chilled, you can enjoy the taste. If you are drinking wine with dinner, go for dry Italian like a Chainti or Sangiovese. Sweeter wines tend to overpower the food. Hope the suggestions have helped you!


Meenal Rajawat

White Zin. It’s a fruity sweet flavor. But it is a bit expensive. Good luck!

Shiraz. I personally hate wine but this variety I simply love.


Tanya Verma

I must confess that it took me a long, long time to acquire the taste for wine. But now that I have found the one that works for me, I can’t do without it. I simply love it now. My tryst with wines started with whites (sweeter/fruitier) but slowly I graduated to the reds and love them now. A really nice light, not bitter is the Pepperwood Merlot. You may love it. Enjoy & keep an open mind!


Shweta
Shweta

You should try Shardonay, great taste!


Sapna Sachdeva

Nothing’s better than the Maneschewitz wine! Try either the blackberry (love it) or the concord grape. Happy Drinking!


Aashika Nanda

Greek, Greek, Greek! Try Roditis which is a nice Rose, Mavro Daphne that offers a fruity flavour and an ideal after meals wine, and Retsina, the woody white wine! Luv em all!


Gayatri Rao
Gayatri Rao

White Zinfandel and Riesling are the best options. Both taste fruity without that bitter feel...nice. As far as the red ones are considered, you may find them bitter. So try some in small doses. And yeah, don't be afraid to ask for suggestions.


Aarushi Goshwami
Aarushi Goshwami

Try a Californian red wine. It tastes like cheese. They also tend to be better as compare to the European ones.


Deepti Ghosh
Deepti Ghosh

I started out buying wine coolers and moved up to real wine soon after getting used to those. I hope this technique will work for you too. Have a glass of nasty beer…and then after some time, go for a glass of wine…any wine literally!!!! :D You’ll love wine.
Seriously, you don’t have to think too much. Just have fun and relax regardless of what you choose. Don’t out yourself under too much pressure. If you don't like wine then you shouldn't actually force it upon just because your husband wants you too.


Reema Rao

Go for something with a fruity taste.


Aarushi Agrawal
Aarushi Agrawal

Try the pinot grigio variety. It is semi-sweet, and nice. But you must have it cold. If you are interested in trying out the red variety, Cabernets are the safe choice. Also try sparklin wines as well, such as the White Zifindale. I hope you got the answer.


Neetu Agrawal
Neetu Agrawal

White wine is the best choice as it doesn't dye your teeth like the red variety and isn't harsh on your stomach.


Pooja

I would recommend German White Wine.


Anisha

Arbor Mist is crap, literally! Start with any Savignon Blanc. It is light and drinkable and won't give you a terrible hangover even if you try to overindulge. It is much better than any of the arbor mist or white zinfandel.


Anamika
Anamika

Why don’t you go for Sutter Home or Berringer White Zinfadel? I too was like you. Wasn't much of a wine drinker until my hubby got me to try the White Zinfadel. Sutter Home and Berringer are also good.


Sonam
Sonam

I like to suggest something between red and white. So it would be Rose certainly. This is a really good one. Gallo Grenache or White Zinferdel (served chilled strictly) are also fabulous options. You’ll love the fruity taste and be suprised how quick you'll get through it. The first ever I tried was Segada' Ribatejano Red. It was kinda "heavy" yet very drinkable and mature. Regardless of what you choose just enjoy yourself.


Jaspreet Sharma
Jaspreet Sharma

You may really like to try out a rose. They're sweet enough to drink. The best part is that you can have them with anything. A Verdhelo or frontignac late harvest is also great option. They have more sugar in them and are easier to appreciate. Strictly avoid Cabernet Savignon at all costs until you actually love wine. You may hate it of you are not an out and out wine lover.


Harpreet Sharma

I personally love Beringer.


Sneha

Well, you can trust my suggestions really. I am a wine maker and have been making wine for over 5 years now. First and foremost, it is important to do a wine tasting. This will help you find your palette, your niche taste. Most new tasters aren’t aware that wine is too varied in taste. The major categories are: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvigon, and Sirah.
When tasting wine eat cheese, crackers and bread between each tasting. The term ‘varietal’ indicates the name of the grapes, the region they belong to, and blends. You’ll have fun learning about wine over the years. The Merlot is my favourite. I love it for the dryness yet sweet combination it provides.


Megha

I am a lover of Rose. White Zinfandel is nice and I also really like the ones by Blossom hill. These are the best options I can count on to enjoy a relaxing weekend with my husband.

It is difficult to pick a specific wine as there are many o them. Each variety is meant for an occasion and mood. Some taste great with steak, fish, chicken while others may make it only for some specific dishes. If you are really looking forward to discover the best wine, take a trip to Sutter Hill or Napa to spend a weekend of wine tasting at vineyards up there. You may even go to a local wine shop and sample some wines.

I haven’t been able to find the best till now. It seems I never will. So I gave up! And yeah, sorry, I could not be of any help for you!

I’m not a wine lover but Boone's Farm has made it to my heart. It is definitely the best!


Neetu
Neetu

The Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill will make a great choice for you. A semi-sweet or a fruit flavour is a fabulous choice for beginners!


Prachi
Prachi

Why don’t you go for a fruitier variety? Try a syrah (red) or a viognier (white). If you don’t like these varieties, try Champagne!


Rinky
Rinky

The muscadine grape wine from is simply great! It comprises of some fabulous such as the healthy resveretrol among many others. It is good for the heart and helps lowering cholesterol! It is a good sweet Italian wine with your dinner to start. The best part is that it doesn't have to match the food. You can add some ice which is considered a no-no in the wine world.


Ananya
Ananya

Try Johannesburger. It is a wonderful Southafrican wine. If you are serious about starting off with a wine ritual, you just can't miss with that one.


Radhika
Radhika

I don’t know whether you are aware of it, there’s this amazing variety known as Bonnie Don. It is a unique blend of 2 different wines. The variety tastes best on a clear summer with a gentle breeze blowing on your face. I and my hubby simply love it. It is a cusp between harsh and sweet. The taste is just right for a romantic day in the back yard. And yeah, I start flirting after the first glass.


Niharika

Riesling and Piesporter are my favourites. They taste awesome! 


Nisha

I was in the same position as you. Then I started drinking only white wines until I got married. Thanks to my hubby who convinced me to try some red. Although I liked it for a change, I still have some trouble with the deeper reds such as cabernet. Pinot Noirs are the better option. Blackstone Merlot another variety that I really love. It is smooth and very popular with meals. For first times, I would certainly suggest a lighter, sweeter wine such as Chateau St. Michele Reisling. Once you get the hang of it, you may try out others.


Nivedita
Nivedita

Women usually like the sweeter varieties especially if they are trying for the first time. This means Chardonnays will make for the best choice when served chilled. Also try Kendall Jackson Chardonnay. Once you get the hang of whites, it is time to start off with the reds. Merlots are the best option. If you want impress your husband, get drunk together.


Mehak
Mehak

Avoid, avoid, avoid Arbor Mist! It is crap. Charles Shaw is a fabulous choice. If you're new to wines, it is always better to try whites before reds. They are smoother. Also try pinot grigio or Asti varieties. They are taste well.


Palak

White Zifandel is something I’ll recommend. There are many brand names that make it Arbor Mist is certainly not amongst them. Zinfandel is light, and easy going down. Avid wine drinkers love it. Wine is an excellent choice if you want to enjoy a ‘good’ feeling sans the hangover. Happy Drinking!


Hapreet

I find the above suggestion good. Plain Zinfandel is a dry, red wine. Reisling is a good option unless your hubby is more of a red wine drinker. If you treat your taste buds with some delectable food while drinking wine, it will taste even better. If you are ok trying dry wine, you can have a piece of fruit to counteract the effect. But remember that wine doesn't have to taste sweet and feel soft on the palate. A merlot or a Sangiovese (Italian) is a good choice for a starter. Both taste excellent when paired with food.

I personally hate wine so can’t really suggest you anything.

I have a fetish for this wine called Chariot San Giovese. It's a red wine and a high end one. The best part is that it is not very most expensive. Although I’m not a wine expert, I can surely claim that most of the wines kind of tasted the same to me, until I tried this one.
I’m sure if you buy a bottle and bring it home, your husband will be elated. This is a great way to impress him!
Make sure you sip it slowly. It seems to be fine when you first taste it. But as you go on, you would be impressed by the flavour. It is really good. As far as I am concerned, I want to make the sips last longer.
If you are looking for white wine, Pinot Grigio is a decent option. It isn’t sour. It is sweet but not heavy. If you are not a wine drinker then you must choose Chariot San Giovese. You'll definitely end up enjoying it slowly. This variety is definitely not bitter and tastes like a light grape juice with more flavour.
Good Luck!

Anyone recommend a wine for a beginner? My hubby is a wine lover and wants me to enjoy it with him. Unfortunately, I found out that all of the varieties taste the same - bitter. People around me say that I haven’t found my flavour yet. Can anyone suggest a tasty wine for me?
