As beauty writers, sometimes it seems like a new miracle-working exotic fruit drifts over from the tropics every season. While it’s exciting to be learning about things like acai berries, goji berries, and pitaya, there’s no need to journey through the rainforest to find an anti-aging miracle. One of the best ingredients for anti-aging is already here, and its home-grown! It’s time to get reacquainted with the humble grape.
You’ve probably thrown them in your salads and set them out with cheese for cocktail parties without even pausing to think about how incredible these tiny fruits are.

We love sharing our desk space with Birchbox Man since he brings his sharp, hilarious wit to every conversation and makes us some mighty cocktails. Gary Vaynerchuk, an irreverent blogger and wine aficionado, is the newest Birchbox Man who shared his vino expertise with us in this hilarious video. In between his, err, colorful musings about hustling and his barber (who also happens to be a hardcore fisherman), Gary offers up one of our favorite oenophile tips ever: the best cure for a wine hangover.
