Again, just ask instead of going back and forth. This is my last post to anyone who will just go to google and report back the same response.

This post had NOTHING to do with Google. It's called knowledge.

As I posted, B12 is NECASSARY for Iron uptake. Read it again with your glasses.

and one more thing............ wine contains ethyl alcohol

Drink grape juice.

Mostly, you are missing the point of wine entirely.

It's not a Big Mac fer pete's sake!

#1: Buy the best that you can afford. Go to a decent wine shop and explain that you are new to wine. They can often point out perfectly nice, drinkable wines for ~$10-12 USD (750 ml) for novice oenophiles.

#2: Open the wine and pour into a glass. Now let it sit for a bit.

#3: Play some of your favorite music.

#4: Cook your favorite meal. Sip a glass sllllllooooowly while you cook. If your recipe calls for wine, add a splash or two.

#5. Pour one more glass with dinner. Sip slowly with your meal.

#6. If you absolutely must, have one last glass, perhaps with some cheese and nuts, for dessert. This is best in the winter, in front of a roaring fire.

The whole "letting wine breathe" thing is unnecessary for most wines, actually, and there are all kinds of "good" ways to drink wine (tho your example above is a good one). But clearly we're dealing with a young person here, so I wouldn't hold your breath on the above scenario. And hey that's OK, many of us were similar when that age. It's simply a question of moderation.

Re wine's health benefits: I would suggest that people not assume doctors are gods. They are people. Sometimes they're wrong. And apparently in occasionally glaring ways. Yikes

I think the new wines in the box are great because you don't need a corkscrew. The only problem is you have to cut a big hole in top of the box so the wine can breath.

BUT (!!!)....on the other hand, you can always get a few bottles of something nostalgic, like Boone's Farm Strawberry or Apple, for example, and chug it, outdoors, for a very special experience! You ladies just need to be led by the hand, that's all. ROFL!
....never mind!
