Wine and health

The wine made in La Rioja Alavesa is very healthy, as long as it is consumed with moderation, thanks to its strength and to the elements that inhibit the action of the micro organisms causing intestinal diseases.

It was the research workers from the Faculty of Pharmacy in Bordeaux who proved that the antiseptic effect of red wine comes from the colouring, which is inactive on the grape but it gets active during the fermentation and with the passage of time.
