Blue Zones

There are five blue zones in the world. Cannonau is a wine grown and produced in  Sardinia it is considered to be one of the best blue zone wines. The grape is also known as Grenache. However, Grenache is grown in Spain and when grown on the island of Sardinia it is only referred to as Cannonau. The people of Sardinia attribute their longevity to this wine.

The five blue zones are as follows: The Italian island of Sardinia. Okinawa, Japan. Loma Linda, California. Costa Rica's isolated Nicoya Peninsula. and Ikaria (Greece)

 Moving naturally throughout the day — walking, gardening, doing housework — is a core part of the Blue Zones lifestyle.

 The Okinawans call it ikigai and the Nicoyans call it "Plan de Vida". Knowing why you wake up in the morning makes you healthier, happier, and adds up to seven years of extra life expectancy.

People in Blue Zone areas stop eating when their stomachs are 80% full and eat their smallest meal in the early evening.

Beans are the cornerstone of most centenarian diets. Vegetables, fruit, and whole grains round out the rest of the diet and meat is eaten in small amounts.

 Moderate but regular consumption of wine (with friends and/or food) is part of the Blue Zones lifestyle.

The world’s longest-lived people have close friends and strong social networks.
