Apart from family, what could be more important than wine and bikes? Of course, there might be the odd rant about other topics on here too...

Could someone find something good to say about white wine?

Survey results (which I'm not sure I believe) from morefocus claim to show that the primary reason why American's drink wine is no longer for its alcohol content but rather for its health benefits. They also claim that 77% of respondents prefer red wine to white - but alarmingly, for 22% this has nothing to do with taste and all to do with the fact that red wine can help prevent heart disease.

It would be much appreciated if scientists could stop studying the negative effects of white wine and instead promote its health benefits so that these folks quit drinking red wine and thereby bring down the prices for the rest of us!
