Reply to "Is one bottle a day too much?"

My wife and I, on average, have a bottle of red a day. (Sometimes we skip a day or even two--even three days--with no wine at all. Then we certainly "make it up" later.)
I am more concerned with the costs of having a bottle of a great tasting red per day than the health risks. Hmmmm, ... let's say a $50 bottle is consumed. (I know, I know, ....sounds high but sometimes one opens a $22 bottle and the next night one opens a
$85 bottle so .... let's just average it out to fifty). So 365 days X 50 = $18,250 per year. I have some employees that work for me that this figure is almost their YEARLY income before taxation.
By the way, ... my calculations are on a SHARED bottle of wine with your spouse... so really it is 1/2 a bottle of wine (or maybe,more like 60/40 male//female consumption). But if you are consuming two bottles of wine per day between two of you ... wow... this can be expensive.
