Wine in Other Countries

I am planning to throw a small party for a few friends of mine next week to celebrate my recent promotion at work. I have a few ideas already in mind I might be willing to implement, but there is still one thing I am considering doing. Since a few of my friends are wine lovers, I am considering getting some exotic wine to add to the dinner I am going to cook for everybody. In France or Spain, people drink wine with their dinners all the time, so I came to the conclusion that I want to do the same in my home just to imitate those countries a little. I read somewhere that life expectancy in South Europe is considerably higher than in many other countries in the world. I wonder what it is that makes the people there live longer. I have a feeling that it must be something about wine and they way they drink it with food. I will keep you posted what I decided to do and I will try to make sure that you exactly what I am planning for this particular evening. I have big plans and I want to see them come to fruition very soon.
