If you loved your daily dose of wine, then you have reasons to delight. A new study has proven that sipping a glass of wine at dinner every day is actually good for you.

Researchers from the universities of Helsinki and Tampere, Finland studied the drinking habits of almost 2,600 people between 18 and 69. They found that 12 percent of people, who had a glass of wine or two with dinner, were the most likely to have good physical and mental health and rate their self-esteem as high.
