Resveratrol, a chemical found in red wine and dark chocolate, may work differently in the body than first thought, a new study suggests.

"Resveratrol has potential as a therapy for diverse diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, and heart disease," said lead study author Dr. Jay Chung, chief of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute's laboratory of obesity and aging research in Bethseda, Md.

People would need to drink about 667 bottles of red wine to get a meaningful treatment dose of resveratrol, a researcher says.People would need to drink about 667 bottles of red wine to get a meaningful treatment dose of resveratrol, a researcher says.

2011 NOWFE Grand Tasting

Posted by perle0 on 2011-10-16 20:59:10 (6365 views)

[Editorial]
[New Orleans]
Held each Memorial Day weekend, the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience culminates in the two Grand Tasting sessions on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. This year's event was spectacular, as always.

Though these events have been held in the Superdome during the past few years, it was under renovation this year. So the Grand Tastings took place in the Hilton, a very appealing space but perhaps a little small for the crowds who flock to this event. The decor, however, was probably the most successful I've seen yet. Ghostly fabric trees lit from inside with strings of lights formed the centerpieces, and on the periphery, tables with luminescent plastic footing in brilliant colors gave these edges of the scene a lovely glow.

Rosenblum Wines & LASPCA Benefit at Swirl

A Benefit for the LASPCA with Rosenblum Wines, Tuesday November 9, 6-8pm
In 1978, veterinarian Dr. Kent Rosenblum and his wife Kathy founded Rosenblum Cellars. Over the years Rosenblum has been hailed as one of the top American wineries and called a ?mecca for zin-fanatics.? Embodying nearly three decades of winemaking tradition, Rosenblum has evolved from a passionate home-winemaking operation into a world-class winery. Today, Rosenblum Cellars is recognized as one of North America?s most acclaimed producers of zinfandel and Rh?ne varietal wines. As a veternarian, Dr. Rosenblum wanted to honor the animals that give us so much joy so he created "Ch?teau La Paws", Rh?ne-inspired blends with a California twist. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this vibrant and deliciously playful wine benefits Paws With A Cause, a charitable leader in training assistance dogs for people with disabilities. And tonight we'll also donate the proceeds from the cost of the tasting to the LASPCA. The Chateau La Paws wines will be in the lineup as well as the Rosenblum Viognier, Petite Sirah, and their award winning, highly rated "Rockpile Zinfandel". Taste five great wines, help out the SPCA, and feel free to bring your well behaved, leashed, four legged friends if you want too! This event is limited to 40 - two legged participants. Reservation and prepayment are required, call 504.304.0635 $15.
