Up to a glass of wine a day can keep cardiovascular disease away. The grape antioxidants in wine help raise the good cholesterol in your blood and reduce damage caused by free radicals, which are molecules produced when your body breaks down food, or by environmental exposures. Free radicals can damage cells and may play a role in preventing heart disease, explains the American Heart Association. If you don’t already consume alcohol, don’t start imbibing to ward off heart disease. You can get antioxidants and other healthy compounds from fruits and vegetables. Another reason to get your nutrients from produce instead of wine is that a serving of wine contributes more calories to your daily intake.

Calorie Comparison

A 5-ounce glass of Yellow Tail wine provides between 112 and 127 calories, depending on the variety. Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio have 112 calories per serving. Shiraz and Merlot contain 120 calories. Bubbles and Bubbles Rosé provide 127 calories per glass. A 1/2-cup serving of grapes, by contrast, has only 52 calories, according to the California Department of Public Health.
