We know that red wine is antioxidant rich, giving us a heart health benefit. However, there is some talk about red wine only being beneficial if originating from some parts of France. Given that our family has a vineyard in Margaret River, I will wait to see some research before endorsing that piece of information. The other hidden benefit that red wine has given me is a recent nomination in the World Food Media Awards. My book was spotted at the vineyard by the Chair of the Awards, Ian Parmenter and I was asked to submit it. ‘truth, lies and chocolate‘ has been nominated in the Best Health Book category and I am heading off to Adelaide tomorrow for the Award ceremony on Monday night. The competition is fierce but what a great opportunity. It is fitting that on the night I will help my heart and sip at my 100ml glass of red.
