re-shaping the South African wine landscape with Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Pinotage wines that have achieved international recognition. If you’ve never stepped outside the California/France/Italy wine triangle and gone exploring, this one- hour wine-tasting is just the place to begin your latest, greatest wine adventure.

Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease challenges conventional cardiology by posing the compelling, revolutionary idea that we can abolish the heart disease epidemic in this country by changing our diets. Drawing on the groundbreaking results of his 20-year nutritional study, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr., a former surgeon, researcher, and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic, convincingly argues that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent and stop the progression of heart disease, but also reverse its effects.
