Moderate alcohol consumption is linked with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Alcohol, including that found in rosé wine, thins the blood and raises good, or HDL, cholesterol. It might even reduce your risk of heart disease, a heart attack or stroke. Older adults and those with risk factors for heart disease derive the greatest benefits from moderate and consumption. The good news is rosé tends to contain less alcohol than both red and white wines.
Rose wine is relatively low in calories, making it a diet-friendly choice. A 5 oz. glass of rose wine contains around 82 calories, making it one of the lowest calorie alcoholic drink choices available. The fresh, crisp flavor of rose wine makes it an ideal spring and summer wine, pairing equally well with pasta, chicken or even a meal cooked on the grill.
