For those of us who have been known to have a taste of the grape every now and then: What are the benefits of this miraculous beverage in your opinion and experience?

Health or just in general? For me, the best thing about wine is the way it enhances a good meal.

In appropriate quantities and circumstances wine seems to encourage relaxation and social interaction.

Yes ,a nice glass with dinner is good for maintaining health....I live in Napa County ,California's most famous wine area....Earlier this year most vineyards wines were tested,even the organic ones....100% of all the wine tested contained Monsanto Roundup ,even the organic wines..The poison is so saturated in the ground that it is flowing in the aquifers now...I switched to buying only European wines ..... http://www.ecowatch.com/monsantos-glyph ... 99552.html

That roundup is a nightmare, and yet in suburbia, prissy little things insist on using it, because, you know, g-d forbid you see a 'weed' Everytime i see someone with roundup in a cart at the market I have fantasies of them drowning in it...sick i know, but true

I like wine, with a meal or just sitting on the deck watching nature.

My palate is not sophisticated - I seem to enjoy the affordable as well as the high-end stuff.

Black Box Merlot is really nice (IMHO), as is the 14 hands Merlot and Cab.

I fancy myself a wine aficionado but the truth is I'll cheerfully drink anything that's free.

I'm not an aficionado by any stretch; just a frequent imbiber. I enjoy particularly New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. I used to enjoy the big, bold Australian Cabs, but in recent years haven't found them enjoyable; must be age catching up.

I really love wine, but you know the saying about high taste and low budget. My browser history is full of searches along the lines of "best cheap wine 2016" and so on.

I'm reading Michael Pollan's *In Defense of Food* right now, which has a section on the benefits of wine. His argument boils down to: in moderation, it sure can't hurt.

Mike

Enjoyed a nice glass of red Italian wine with dinner tonight. Quite enjoyable.
