Wine associated with improved performance on cognitive tests
Published on 19/08/2010

Wine hamper enthusiasts may be interested to hear drinking the beverage in moderate amounts could reduce the risk of a decline in cognitive skills.

Investigators in Norway looked at the drinking habits of 5,000 men and women over a seven-year period and discovered those who imbibe wine scored better in cognitive tests.

Those involved in the study noted sipping wine "but not beer and spirits was positively associated with cognitive function in women".

However, the team found men did better in the tests if they down both wine and beer.

The scientists indicated the results fit with previous studies that show a reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease and dementia in those with a "light to moderate alcohol consumption".

Earlier this week, an article in Get Bracknell revealed a vineyard in Twyford picked up an award in the 2010 Decanter World Wine Awards.

Stanlake Park won a bronze medal for its Regatta White Wine.
