As a diabetic, I often get asked if I drink alcohol and the answer is yes. But, I am very cautious with consumption because for me it is hard to determine the difference between experiencing low glycemic levels aka "low sugar" or actually just being tipsy. If these symptoms are not addressed, this can turn into a dangerous situation. Luckily, I am able to surround myself with people that I can trust to help me monitor my sugars while drinking. Now with that being said, not only is this the number one priority I take into consideration when drinking, but I also am selective about what I choose to drink. I never order mixed drinks out at bars or restaurants simply because it's not worth the spike in sugar and the feeling of that effect on my body. I stick to simple drinks such as my favorites whiskey and wine.
Today we're talking about wine! Most people might think there are only grapes in wine, but actually, this is not the case. With most mass-produced products, companies make choices to save money and extend product life which results in adding a lot more to your wine glass then just fermented grapes. Such as added sugars, yeast, salt, and acids may be added to control and direct the fermentation process.
Comparing clean crafted organic wine to conventionally produced wine there are many differences The side bar is an image from Scout & Cellar Website sharing some facts:
If you are ready to make the switch you may say "Where do I find clean crafted wine?" Honestly, it is HARD to find in stores and tends to be a bit expensive...Until I discovered Scout & Cellar.
