Now that we are in the month of February it is time to think of a little romance and Valentines Day that is coming up. Many are using this special time of year to bring together fine wines and dark chocolate for events to raise money for charity and socialize. While many feel that consuming chocolate and wine is a guilty pleasure, science on the other hand has shown that it is actually a healthy choice when used in moderation.
Chocolate lovers can rejoice in the naturally occurring polyphenol antioxidants in the cocoa plant and the darker the chocolate the more are being consumed. While wine lovers have known for some time that especially red wines are loaded with antioxidants that can help you look younger and protect your body from cancer and other diseases.
So as the month of February fills up with opportunities to attending tastings and celebrate love wine lovers should take the time to indulge in these beneficial treats. Of course the tasting does not have to be a large social event it can also be a small treat for two who want to spend time together. Bring home a bottle of your favorite red in a personalized wine bottle holder along with some dark chocolate for your love.
