    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Rough Draughts - Wines for Warm Weather Fare

    Welcome to the first release of a brand new part of our blogcast that we are calling "Rough Draughts."  This will feature brief outtakes from our previous podcast that for one reason or another did not make the final version.  In essence, it's a compilation of audio clips that were edited out for time, yet we still felt they contained some good conversation.  Depending on the material we have, these could range from the serious to the very silly: we will try to give you advance notice on what to be listening for.

    This weeks Rough Draughts features outtakes from our "Wines for Warm Weather Fare" podcast.  You will find some information about how to store your uncorked bottles of wine and a segment on a mixed drink that uses one of the white wines we tried.  At the very end, there are some quick outtakes that were just humorous.  This tiny "sip" of a podcast should help to tide you over until our next podcast about Seasonal Summer Brews.

    Despite the economy consumers aren't buying less wine, just cheaper ones

    Here's an article from the Chicago Sun Times about wines sales.  Even though the economy has been difficult, wine sales by volume are up over last year.  On the other hand wine sales decreased slightly showing that consumers still want their glass of wine but are looking for more value.  They also interviewed some wine merchants to get their thoughts.  Click the link to read the article.

    A Little Wine May Boost Heart-Healthy Omega-3

    A European study of adults has found that moderate wine drinkers have higher blood levels of omega-3.  My first question was what do they mean by moderate.  Thankfully the article answered that question.  One drink a day for women and two for men.  The researchers believe that once again it comes down to the polyphenols in wine.  Oh yeah, I know what you're thinking.  All these articles about the benefits of wine and yet it still is not part of the food pyramid.
