In ancient times wine was considered more for it’s medicinal and restorative properties. A far cry from some politically motivated Surgeon Generals Chicken Little warning that “labels on wine bottles urging consumers to learn more about the health effects of wine are likely to encourage irresponsible drinking.”
The next thing you know, they’ll be restricting our use of cranberries.
