Health Benefits of Wine – According to a 1915 Advertisement

By December 4, 2010No Comments

Recently researchers have discovered that red wine may have a number of health benefits.  But back in 1915 advertisers did not need any research to back up their claims that wine was a panacea.

Here is a New York wine marketing itself as a tonic for convalescent patients.

Those in the know drink it as a tonic because it carries the “condensed sunshine of the famous Keuka valley, the most beautiful and healthful spot on earth.”   Cheers!
