ABOUT HER COMMITMENT TO WOMEN’S HEALTH DURING AMERICAN HEART MONTH:
February is American Heart Month, and with heart disease as the number one killer of women, Kate is standing-up for the heart health of women everywhere. As she prepares to attend the Women’s Day Red Dress Awards on February 9, on behalf of CocoaVia®, a daily cocoa extract supplement and the lead sponsor of the Woman’s Day Red Dress Awards, she is speaking out in support of the work of the American Heart Association to help women lead vibrant and healthy lives.
You’ve heard that there are health benefits associated with dark chocolate. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Chocolate is good, but it’s the cocoa flavanols that are good for you. When consumed daily, cocoa flavanols are scientifically proven to promote a healthy heart by supporting health blood flow. CocoaVia® daily cocoa extract supplement delivers the highest concentration of cocoa flavanols on the market today, which are scientifically proven to help support healthy circulation†, which is critical to your overall health so you feel your best every day.

wineLA is about enhancing the wine culture of Los Angeles. To do so, wine must be in rhythm with fashion, music, food and other beverages. It must take advantage of the geography, the architecture and the centers of interest. Los Angeles is a giant playground with an amazing array of venues, spaces, wine bars, restaurants, beaches, roof tops, gardens, and magical views. We want to be a part of the LA lifestyle, the wine lifestyle, and celebrate the people, the place and the passion.
wineLA will promote significant events, occasional classes, and tastings of merit. This is phase two of what we started 20 years ago at LearnAboutWine.com - America’s first wine education website and first in wine event creation. LearnAboutWine will now evolve onto a digital platform; the transformation will take some time; so we will slowly rebrand our event efforts onto wineLA, reduce the number of activities we focus on, and elevate our efforts to focus on the next big thing… Doing what is best for the wine industry and the communities we serve. Edicts: innovate, evolve and excite.
We thank you for joining our newsletter, we will be sending fewer emails and packing them with amazing content. We want to be your wine content provider and would love to hear about your favorite places, your music, your locations - we want to be under the influence of what ignites your passion for Los Angeles.
