Dry White Wine
Dry white wines are not just for those who are new to drinking wines - some of the most revered wines worldwide are dry whites. A dry white wine (for those who don't know) is any white wine that has residual sugar well under 1%. Whether it's Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris, white wine is favored amongst beginner and veteran wine drinker alike.
If you are interested in drinking wine for the health benefits as well as the sensory experience, you should know that although white and red wines are equal when it comes to raising “good” HDL cholesterol, red far exceeds white because of the antioxidant compound known as resveratrol.
The reason that red contains more of this natural drug is that the skins and seeds of red grapes are used in the wine making process, whereas the opposite is true when making white wine.
If you still prefer the taste of your dry white wines and would rather leave the reds alone, you can still get your resveratrol in concentrated pill form. It's atleast worth reading up about. Check out www.tryvinotol.com
