Study Shows Israeli Merlot Wine is Healthier

New research at Hebrew University in Jerusalem found a surprisingly high level of resveratrol in the grapes of Israeli Merlot wine. Many believe resveratrol, which is found naturally in grapes, to have health benefits.

The discovery was made as part of a joint research project of Dr. Oded Shoseyov of Hebrew University's Institute of Plant Science and Genetics in Agriculture and two master's degree students from the University of Ariel.
