Sipipa has always been a delicious destination for pizza, pasta and a wide array of great food. But now, you can take that fantastic meal up a notch. We’re excited to announce a much-anticipated change to the way you may enjoy meals with your family and friends. 

Introducing Sipipa’s new dine-in environment, where customer can bring their own wine or beer into the restaurant to enjoy with their meal. A BYOB environment is something we think our customers will really enjoy. And for wine lovers, there’s no better day to celebrate than today, which is National Drink Wine Day!

The purpose of National Drink Wine Day is to not only share your love for vino, but also promote the many health benefits of wine.  Wine has an important role in history and across many religions. It brings friends together, is used in celebrations and pairs well with most foods.

Health Benefits of Wine

For centuries, wine was used to treat and improve various health conditions. Research suggests moderate consumption may help protect against certain cancers, enhance heart health, prevent vision loss, improve mental clarity and help people live longer.

However, it’s important to remember these health benefits are only linked to moderate drinking, which is defined as up to one drink per day for women, and up to two drinks per day for men (and of course, only by adults of legal drinking age). Too much alcohol can have adverse side effects.

Red wine has health benefits because it is high in resveratrol, which can boost cardiovascular health, improve acne and more. Here are more reasons to drink red wine:

1. Healthy blood vessels and blood pressure

Procyanidins found in red wine help keep the blood vessels healthy, and even nonalcoholic red wine can reduce blood pressure.

2. Lower risk of type-2 diabetes

Drinking one glass of red wine with dinner can modestly decrease cardiometabolic risk in people with type-2 diabetes, and the ethanol in wine helps metabolize glucose.

3. Improve cardiovascular health

Resveratrol in wine can reduce the risk of heart disease by the way it affects the gut microbiome.

4. Brain protection following a stroke

Resveratrol may also cause increased levels of the enzyme heme oxygenase, which protects nerve cells from brain damage.

5. Prevent dementia

By reducing the “stickiness” of blood platelets, Resveratrol helps keep the blood vessels open and flexible, which promotes a good supply of blood to the brain. And this appears to stabilize a key biomarker for Alzheimer’s.

6. Increase levels of omega-3 fatty acids

Drinking red wine appears to boost levels of omega-3 fatty acids in plasma and red blood cells, which is  believed to protect against heart disease.

7. Prevent or help cure cancer

With colon cancer, consuming low doses of resveratrol can reduce the size of bowel tumors by approximately 50 percent. A woman’s high estrogen levels can encourage the growth of cancer cells, but aromatase inhibitors present in red wine can reduce estrogen levels and reduce the risk of breast cancer. Moderate consumption of red wine can boost lung function and prevent lung cancer cells from proliferating. And a study showed that people who drank one glass a week were 6 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer than those who never drank wine.
