From The Cellar
The Port wine made by Messina Hof offers several great health benefits. One major component of Portwine is Resveratrol, which is found in the skin of grapes. Resveratrol helps speed up the healing of injuries and reduce inflammation in the body. It also plays as an antioxidant and fights against aging. Tannins areanother helpful complex that are present in Port wine. Found in the skins and seeds of grapes, Tannins help protect the heart from disease and can also help cure general dental aches and pains.
Another important element in wine is called Quercetin, which is a pigment that, much like resveratrol, acts as an anti-inflammatory. Studies have shown that Quercetin can also fight against certain cancer causing cells.
When consumed in moderation and at appropriate levels, the advantages of drinking Port wine are tremendous. Come by Messina Hof Winery and pick up a bottle of our own wonderfully made Port wine, packed with numerous perks for your health. You can also buy at Messina Hof’s Online Store.
