Stop what you’re doing – we have found the world’s HEALTHIEST wine

The million dollar question: Can you drink as much as you want without getting hungover?

Katie Mythen-Lynch

Ever heard of a winemaker launching a skincare brand before?

We hadn’t either until we discovered Nikolaihof, an Austrian winery that grows grapes so pure and free of contamination that they can be used to create organic cosmetics after the wine-making process is finished.

What’s more? While you’re sipping it you can be 100% guaranteed that your cool glass of white contains no herbicides, pesticides, artificial fertilisers or synthetic sprays.

And now for the crucial question: Does drinking ‘healthy’ wine mean you can drink as much as you want without getting a hangover?

The correct and factual answer is no – of course can still get a hangover – but for the purposes of denial let’s just pretend that the answer is yes.

Why is it so healthy, you may have asked or maybe you haven’t but we’ll answer anyway.

Well, it dates back to Roman times, Nikolaihof is the oldest wine estate in Austria.

It’s run by the Saahs family who all work in the business and keep nasties off their vineyards using stinging nettle manure, valerian drops, valerian tea and other specially produced preparations, which are applied in highly diluted form like homoeopathic medicines.

The farm is run along biodynamic guidelines, which means for planting and harvesting times the Saahs family refers to the moon calendar.

The whole process is carefully monitored and cleared by the Demeter Association, one of the strictest control systems of organic agriculture in the world.

Not only is the wine delicious but the grapes used to make it are used to create grapeseed oil used in their Grapeseed Intensive-Serum, moisturisers and hand cream.

So everyone’s a winner.
