Cholesterol Lowering Benefits
My husband's doctor recommended 4 ounces of a dark wine everyday as a treatment to lower his bad cholesterol rather than taking medication. Since we don't eat cholesterol foods, this was the next technique for treating his condition. Since we don't drink alcohol, we had to discover something that tasted good, but we didn't want to spend a fortune on it!
After lots of tasting and taking many bottles back, we found an inexpensive merlot from a winery right in our area. Callaway Winery in Temecula, California is producing a fine merlot with deep, dark, smooth, juicy blackberry and cherry undertones. Those four ounces per day lowered the bad cholesterol levels of my husband's blood and raised the good levels. But only 4 ounces per day...
We first found this wine at Orchards in Ramona, California and then at Trader Joe's in La Mesa, California. You can also go to the Callaway Vineyard and Winery for a tasting... to save a few dollars, by requesting their discout coupon from their web site before you go.
