Who doesn’t love wine that not only tastes delicious, but is good for you as well? I have some great news for you, fruit and berry wines are jam-packed with health benefits, like antioxidants. Such substances are known to prevent diseases such as cancer, coronary heart disease and other critical illnesses. Also, many dark-colored fruits, like blackberries and blueberries used in wines, contain flavonoids. Flavonoids have antioxidant properties that have been shown to have various health advantages, including, heightening the immune system, heart and brain functions, and also decrease the risk of a variety of cancers. Who needs to take daily supplements when you can receive great health benefits from wine?
We at The Beverage Baron love fruit and berry wine, and currently carry two award-winning, Canadian brands. The first, Happy Knight, a local New Brunswick winery, integrates various fruits, like cranberries and apples into crisp and exquisite wine. The second, Auk Island, is a Twillingate, Newfoundland and Labrador based winery, which uses handpicked blueberries and other berries for wine. The winery has made its mark in the industry making unique wines made from Newfoundland berries and fruits, and even using Iceberg water. Both brands are crafted from the berries and fruit of Atlantic Canada – known for its pristine growing conditions. These wines are not something you want to miss out on!
Be sure to try a bottle of one of our great fruit and berry wines today. You can find a list of both Happy Knight and Auk Island Wines on our website.
