Vineyards and Longevity?

A friend of mine told me that she was on a wine tour and went to a Vineyard called Chamard. While there she was given a brochure.....The brochure contained information regarding the Methusaleh Project. It turns out that the vineyard was recently bought by Dr Rothberg.

I found this an interesting place to recruit for the study. True, the elderly have imbibed, and those visiting vineyards often are retired. So perhaps this is an adequate place for sampling.

I just wanted to mention the Methusaleh project again. Personally I think this is an intriguing idea. I have examined Nir Barzilai's project as well.

Imagine...go to a vineyard, get a cheek swab.
