The Spanish Federation of Oenology has made a brief statement regarding the coronavirus COVID-19, which we believe is a recommended reading, as it solves concerns while echoing the possible benefits of wine against the virus.
Here is an excerpt:
The survival of the virus in wine seems impossible because the concomitant combination of the presence of alcohol, a hypotonic environment, and the presence of polyphenols, prevents the life and multiplication of the virus itself.
Contamination by packaging appears to be very remote, if not statistically non-existent , also in view of the short life of the virus and the absence of a positive "biological" living host.
Moderate wine consumption , always linked to responsible consumption, can contribute to better hygiene of the oral cavity and the pharynx, the latter being the area where viruses nest during infections. "
