If you want to combine the heart-healthy properties of a good red wine with a hearty dose of environmental awareness, you’re in luck — try Hahn Estates Pinot Noir. Wines from this vineyard are produced sustainably, using integrated farming practices, and Hahn is certified under the Sustainability in Practice Vineyard Certification Program. Plus, red wine is great for your heart. “Made from grapes and then fermented with the skins, red wine is rich in flavanols,” says Liz Applegate, Ph.D. “These compounds found in grape skins act as powerful antioxidants, which protect the bad carrier of cholesterol LDL from damaging artery walls thus lowering heart disease risk.”

Get Moving – A “Recipe” for Heart Health
February is National Heart Health Month, and during this drive for health-awareness, super foods like salmon and olive oil usually get top billing. But don’t forget that physical activity plays a vital role in heart health at every age. Here’s a rundown on what daily exercise can do for your heart, along with tips on how to fit fitness into your life:
Aim for 30 to 60 minutes daily of moderate exercise, such as jogging, gardening, heavy housework, brisk walking and bike riding. You can reach your daily activity goal with “exercise bouts” of 10 minutes or more, spread out during the day. For example, a 10-minute brisk walk at work and a 20-minute bike ride in the afternoon combine to achieve your daily goal. Also, limiting “screen” time (TV, computer, video games) to less than 2 hours at a sitting will help you get up and get moving!
