Does anyone have a red wine they like that is considered healthy? Is white wine just as good for you? Doctor actually recommended I drink a glass of wine to bring up my HDL numbers. I have not drank wine in years. I wonder what brand to get. I also wonder if elderberry wine is healthy too. Going to do a web search, but thought I would ask here too. I like a sweeter type wine,but will drink anything if it is good for me. Back in the day in Hungary we used to mix sweet wines with club soda to make a wine cooler type drink.Regular wine coolers from the store used to give me terrible stomach pains. So far I have just gotten a bottle of Egri bikaver aka bull's blood.A not sweet hungarian wine.My granny lived in a small village close to Eger,and my mom said the wine is good for you.
