DR. FRIEDMAN OF FOUR SISTERS RANCH TO SPEAK IN HONG KONG
Why Wine - The Health Benefits of Wine
Paso Robles will again be placed on the map of China as Dr. Serena Friedman will be there with the Four Sisters Ranch wines from Paso in Hong Kong, speaking on the Health Benefits of drinking red wine. Dr. Friedman, a medical doctor as well as grape grower and wine producer with her husband, Dr. Michael Drucker have been growing premium Paso Robles wine grapes for over 23 years and two years ago brought the wine to China, introducing Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot in Shanghai and then in Yantai and Qingdao China. The wine is also in Dongguan, in the Guangdong Province where interest in the benefits of wine daily consumption is high. She spoke previously at the Yantai China Wine Exhibition Center on this topic but even more recent research will be included in the new seminar. At the Hong Kong Wine Exhibition Trade show Dr. Friedman will be presenting a brief history of wine for medical uses, followed by a lively and somewhat humorous talk with slides on Health Benefits of using red wine in moderation: including the well know cardiovascular benefits, reduction in certain cancers, benefits for gall bladder disease, prostate and colonic cancers, skin benefits, preservation of cognitive ability, reduced depression in the elderly and more. The effect of the grape anti-oxidants and the "grape growing season", stresses to the grape, and type of wine consumed will be topics touched on. Best of all the talk will be followed by invitations to the Hong Kong audience to taste our remarkable Paso Robles California wines.« Back to 2012 Press
