The secret to long life...?

If you like wine, you'll LOVE this!

We're always told, if you want to life a long life, eat healthy foods, exercise, and drink lots of water...well, you might be able to throw all of that advice right into the compost pile, because a 107-year-old man (yep, 107!) has some different advice. 

Antonio Docampo GarcĂ­a died last week at the ripe old age of 107...but believed that the secret to his long life was his heavy wine consumption. I'm not just talking about a few glasses a day!

Garcia drank 2 bottles of wine at lunch, and another 2 bottles with dinner! He also started his day with a glass of brandy (which is distilled wine, fyi), and said he "never" drank water. 

On average, Garcia consumed about 250 bottles of wine a month! And you might be thinking, "How can he possibly afford all that wine?!" Well, Garcia was a winemaker who basically had access to all the wine he could drink...and he did! 

This story reminds me of Richard Overton, the 109 year old veteran who smokes 12 cigars a day and loves his whiskey and Coke!
