Ancient Egyptian likes to drink red wine

King Tutankhamen, who died in 1327 B.C., apparently preferred the taste of red wine, according to scientists who found residues of red wine compounds (tannins) in ancient Egyptian jars found in his tomb.

Besides tannin, red wine contains resveratrol, which in medical studies has been associated with anticancer properties.
