  Enjoy the season with family and friends!  
DID YOU KNOW  In ancient Greece, the dinner host would take the first sip of wine to ensure it was safe to drink, giving us the phrase to "drink to one's health."
The tradition of a celebratory "toast" began with the ancient Romans, who would drop a piece of toasted bread in their wine to buffer unpleasant tastes and excessive acidity.                                                     
Cheers to a Healthy 2018! :)
