"French Paradox" update - procyanadin

Robert Lauriston | Dec 13, 2006 10:18 PM

The study found that wines from southwest France and Sardinia have higher levels of the substance, and the researchers theorize that traditional wine production methods, high-altitude vinyards, and/or the Tannat grape might be behind that.
