WineHealth 2013: Is wine just another alcoholic beverage?

Understanding the impact of wine on human health is essential for any winemaker. New research on the relationship between the consumption of wine and health is accelerating from around the world. Building on the success of the 6th International WineHealth Conference held in Friuli, Italy in 2010, WineHealth 2013 will be held in Sydney, Australia, in July, bringing together scientific experts from across the globe. Experts will present their latest research findings across a variety of disciplines including:

  • Cardiovascular
  • Pharmacological
  • Ageing
  • Cognitive function
  • Nutrition and lifestyle
  • Psychological

This conference presents the most objective picture of what is known about wine as a unique beverage and its relationship to health. Sociological outcomes of the use and abuse of wine, and hence public health priorities will also be presented.
