100-Year-Old Says Wine Is Her Secret to a Long Life

Contributed by

For centuries, explorers traveled the world searching for the Fountain of Youth. But a 100-year-old in Bangor, Maine, said she has found the true secret to longevity: wine.

Florence Bearse, who recently celebrated her 100th birthday, was not timid in her interview with WCSH 6 in crediting wine as her secret for youthfulness. “I like my wine,” she said. “Don’t take it away from me.”


Bearse might actually be onto something here. Studies have shown that wine consumption has been linked to promoting a healthy heart, reducing the chances of developing breast cancer and even slowing down the aging process.

Looking for anymore wisdom from her? “Don’t take any bologna.”

We’ll drink to that, Florence.
