    Calories in wine come in two guises. Those in the alcohol: each gram of alcohol contains seven calories. And those in the sugar that’s either a leftover from the fermentation process or in the case of some wines, such as champagne, added after to give the wine a sweeter flavour.

    Some wines are very calorific, so even just a few glasses soon add up. One standard-sized glass of wine typically contains about 130 calories. The NHS website points out that “drinking four bottles of wine a month adds up to a yearly consumption of around 27,000kcal, which is equivalent to eating 48 Big Macs per year.”

    Establishing the calories that are in a glass can be tricky as this information is not often easy to find out. Unlike food, wine doesn’t always have nutritional information displayed on the packaging. So like our low calorie beer collection, we have rounded up some of the best low calorie wine available to buy online

    Which type of wine is the best low calorie option?

    Dry and low alcohol wines are usually a good low-calorie option as they typically contain less sugar. When growing grapes for winemaking the more sun that the grapes are exposed to the riper, the plumper, and the sweeter they will become.

    Grapes used to make sweet dessert wines for example are harvested at the end of the season so the grapes are the sweetest and the highest in sugar. Alternatively, very dry wines are often the product of grapes grown in cooler climates. Where there is less sunshine the grapes will produce less sugar.

    During the fermentation process, the sugar in the grape juice is transformed into alcohol. So you may notice that wines from hotter climates often have a higher alcohol percentage. As every gram of alcohol contains seven calories some of the best low-calorie wine options are also low in alcohol.
