Vive Le Vin Rouge

Poem By Herbert Nehrlich

The highest levels
of resveratrol,
a miracle substance
available to consumers
occur in
red wines.

The molecule,
which is found,
highly concentrated
in the skins of grapes,
is extremely insoluble.

Red wine is made
from grapes processed
with their skins, and
alcohol helps extract it.

And because the wine
is stored in dark,
light-proof bottles,
corked to keep oxygen out,
the resveratrol is preserved.

Resveratrol is, no doubt
an agent that will prolong life.
A true life-extender,
so follow the leaders,
drink du vin rouge,
not du vin blanc.
And live to eat and drink,
not eat and drink to live.
