David, that is startling and scarey!

I wonder what the heck they did - poured a bucket of sugar water into the wine? ..... red wine??? How can anyone savor the varietal? THAT is an abomination!

There are a few (mainly Italian) sweet red wines although generally, red wine by definition is dry.

However, I fear that, like many products, the bigger manufacturers look for short cuts and even here in France, Judy and I have had to move away from some of our old favourites that have acquired little extras like sulphides (which Judy has problems with).

It really has to be that old favourite - Eat (or in this case Drink) to the meter!

Manufacturers add sulphites [ sulfites for Americans]to wine where they serve as antioxidants. Sometimes they become reduced in the bottle to sulphides[sulfides for Americans] ie the stuff that smells like rotten eggs.

Some people are very sensitive to sulphites, even more so when manufacturers add too much to prolong even further the shelf live of their product.

Wine with the rotten eggs smell is repulsive and nobody wants to drink it.

I'm not a big drinker either. But I bought a case of Chilean strawberry wine on sale a few weeks ago and still have three bottles to go. Guess I will share it with my family instead of having a bottle to myself over a couple of days.

One of the golden rules with any process management is to "keep it simple"and management of diabetes or its precursors is just that. Its one of the reasons that I stopped drinking delicious dry red wine.

Luckily I never liked beer or wine. Hard liquor with diet mix is what I use, and it does take your BG lower. Doing it occasionally isn't a problem, but if I were using insulin or on a med that forces my pancreas to produce insulin, I wouldn't do it out of fear of a low.
