    - Wine has been around for centuries, and there are some health benefits to drinking a glass! Moderate drinkers have lower risks for liver disease, type two diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and some cancers. Wine has also been known to reduce “bad” cholesterol, or LDL, and increase “good” cholesterol, known as HDL.

    And a glass of wine won’t add to your waist line. According to Delish.com, a five ounce glass of wine has just 100 calories, and its fat-free and cholesterol free.

    So...Raise your glass and celebrate the day!
