Here’s a study I would love to volunteer for:
Have Scientists Found Another Reason to Love Champagne?
Researchers at Reading University in the UK have been feeding Champagne to some very lucky lab rats. They have discovered that the equivalent of three glasses of Champagne a week seems to boost the rats’ memories, and may even slow down or ward off dementia and Alzheimer’s.
So far they’ve only conducted lab tests, but they are planning to start human trials soon.
According to the article, they think it’s the phenolic acid found in red grape skins that is causing this beneficial side effect.
Now that summer is here in all its glory, we’re all looking for ways to stay cool. For home winemakers and brewers, that means chilling our homemade wines and beers to enjoy with dinner and by the pool.
A cold homemade beverage shared at a barbecue or picnic tastes great in the heat, but condensation can ruin your label. If you printed your wine label at home, it could streak and run when damp, creating an unsightly mess.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can avoid streaks and smears and always have beautiful bottles when you order your personalized wine labels from Noontime Labels. All of our custom labels are water resistant and won’t smear or run going when you grab one from the refrigerator or cooler.
At Noontime Labels, our motto is “You make wine, we make labels.” But actually, we don’t just make custom wine labels… we make wine too. Lots of it, lately!
As I mentioned in a recent post about our wine, Mrs. Noontime and I are trying to get ahead of the curve. We’re making a lot of wine, so we can finally have enough to age. Once we have a healthy surplus, we can slow down a bit.
Though I have to admit, making this much wine is a lot of fun! I’m not sure I’m going to want to slow down. I think we may just keep going until we run out of space.
