Wine is best enjoyed in moderation and the right amount of wine is different for everyone. For some it could mean one glass of wine per night, and for other it’s none.

It’s a personal choice and an important consideration to support a safe and healthy lifestyle. Knowing what a standard drink is and tracking your consumption are important determinants to defining the right amount for you.

Whether the goal is addressing sugar or calorie intake, or one’s relationship with wine, the commitment to healthy living (while still enjoying the occasional glass of wine) is a personal lifestyle choice.

Alcohol abuse is linked to numerous health risks and should always be consumed and enjoyed in moderation. Wine can be part of a healthy lifestyle that includes good nutrition, exercise, sleep, and limited stress. However, no nutritional intervention can eliminate the health hazards associated with long-term alcohol overconsumption.
