To drink more and spend less

 TAGS:In 2012 Spanish households increased their wine consumption and reduced the spending on these purchases. They tend to choose cheaper wines and increased their consumption by 0.2% over the previous year.

We’ve seen cheap wine options that have emerged successfully in Spanish market thanks to the new behavior of consumers, looking for new options in order to serve wine at their tables and enjoy a good family meal.

Spending on wine purchases fell 2.6%, representing 2.36 Euros per liter. This is a reflection of the fall of prices for wines with denomination of origin and sparkling ones. In addition, there was an increase in the consumption of wines without designation of origin at affordable prices in the Spanish market.

Wine consumption in Spain increased to reach 435, 3 million liters in 2012, this is a considerable amount and a good part of this consumption comes from Catalonia. This Autonomous Community consumes more wine and spends more money on food.

Today we recommend the most popular and economical wines with denomination of origin in Uvinum:

Wine against stress

We know that wine has many properties. It maintains heart rate, is an antioxidant and provides general health. Many doctors recommend drinking one or two glasses a day.

It also serves to reduce the stress. A study of the University of Sunderland in England analyzed the drinking habits of five different groups of workers, both public and private sector between 21 and 55 years old. It states that British consumers who drink wine use it as a stress reducer.

This happens much more in the middle class workers. In fact, it establishes that they can drink wine to escape, for example, after a tiring day. The choice is based on the knowledge of each drink when choosing the type of drink they want, either for dinner or for a quiet drink.

Research of the University of Sunderland concluded that there is a common perception among some groups of people who regularly drink wine at home to combat stress. And it states that they normally have a low consumption, regulated, studied and nothing problematic.

And that wine, particularly red wine, provides minerals for the body, such as zinc, magnesium, iron and potassium, as well as improving blood circulation in the brain.

Wine is an anti-stress drink, since the percentage of alcohol is relatively low and acts directly as relaxing in the brain.

Does it mean that a good Rioja wine will help you be more relaxed? By the way, today I recommend two great wines for you:
