Sherry Lowers Cholesterol Levels
In the study, researchers examined the effects of drinking moderate amounts of four typical Spanish sherries produced in Andalucia, known generically as oloroso, manzanilla, fino, and amontillado, in healthy laboratory rats. All of these wines are produced from the same grape, called the palomino.
The rats enjoyed roughly the human equivalent of a five-ounce pour of sherry, delivered via injection rather than a glass, every day at 4 p.m. for two months. Control rats were given a similar dose of water or alcohol.
