Toni On! and P.C. Richard & Son Discuss Wine

Who doesn’t like a good glass of wine with dinner on occasion? Wine has been shown to be high in antioxidants and have great health benefits for your heart. It can also improve with age, but can quickly deteriorate and become sour in inadequate conditions. Therefore, storage is very important when keeping wine for long-term aging. Toni On! New York spent some time in one of our stores to take a look at some of the many wine coolers we sell. Take a look at what they saw, and check out the great online wine resources they included!

For more information on the great wine coolers we sell, talk to your P.C. Richard & Son sales associate today.
