Drink ALL the Wine!

As if we really need an excuse to drink wine, February 18th is Drink Wine Day! It's time to pull out the glasses, chill the bottle and prepare your best speech because this is a day worth toasting to. Of course, if you want to enjoy the best wine at the Lake of the Ozarks, you should definitely come out to Seven Springs Winery to enjoy the day with. We have all of the varieties you love, from red to white, sparkling to dry, and even a special blend. Here are a few fun facts about your favorite vino to get you ready for Sunday!

Drink Red Wine

Did you know that drinking red wine in appropriate doses is better for you than not drinking any at all?? This doesn't actually surprise us, but several human trial studies have shown that moderate red wine consumption is better than none at all. The reason why is because the antioxidants found in red wine can lower incidences of cardiovascular disease, mortality, and type-2 diabetes.

Are All Red Wines the Same?

Well ... there are some red wines that are better for you, amazingly. Mainly because some have higher levels of "good for you stuff" than others. Dry reds seem to be better than the sweet wines, and the wines with lower alcohol content are a little better than the ones with higher percentages. Red wines with higher tannins are better than low tannin wines, too!

How Much Wine Can You Drink?

According to the Wine Institute, Vatican City drinks the most wine per capita at 74 liters of wine per person per year! That's a full two times MORE WINE per capita than Italy!

What Makes Wine Red or White?

For what it's worth, red grapes and white grapes produce the same colored juice - it's just clear! However, the grape's skin is what makes red wine it's red color, versus white grapes making white wine. Red grape skins have several thousand times the anthocyanin pigments, which then turn the wine red in production.

Did You Know?

A “cork-tease” is someone who constantly talks about the wine he or she will open but never does.

Oh to Taste the Earth

In the Middle Ages, the greatest and most innovative winemakers of the day were monastic orders. The Cistercians and Benedictines were particularly apt winemakers, and they are said to have actually tasted the earth to discover how the soil changed from place to place.

A chilled glass of wine is one of the most incredible experiences. Especially when you combine that with enjoying a nice appetizer tray, a relaxing atmosphere, good friend, and live music. We have live music happening every Saturday through February, and as we get closer to spring, the patio will be the best place to relax and enjoy a nice day. There's only one way to really enjoy wine at the Lake of the Ozarks for Drink Wine Day, and that's at the Lake's original winery!

Come for the wine...Stay for the atmosphere...Remember the view!
