  • Enjoy our fantastic selection of low calorie wine. We have included our favourite red, white, rosé, and prosecco low cal options.

    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

    Low calorie wine Walt Riesling LØ

    Walt Riesling LØ

    Calories: 4 per glass (125ml) | ABV: 0.5%

    German Reisling has become so popular over the last few years. The Riesling grape is grown in the cooler climate of Germany or Austria so makes a lovely crisp dry wine. This Walt Riesling LØ is made using a traditional method before the alcohol is carefully removed to preserve the great Resiling flavour. We loved the toasty honey aroma and the sweet fresh flavour. The wine is sweet but acidic and would pair beautifully with cheese and shellfish.

    Vidiano Natural wine

    Calories: 84 per glass (125ml) | ABV: 12.5%

    This sensational biodynamic wine is produced on the Corelli Wine Domaine Paterianakis on the island of Crete. It’s organic and doesn’t have any sulphates added. Sulphates are often the cause of hangovers so this could be a hangover-free wine? I guess it’s worth a shot!

    In fact, it’s one of the best we tasted, this wine has a complex flavour. We picked up aromas of apple and honey, but it also has a refreshing finish. It would pair well with chicken and fish. Despite being having only 84 calories in a glass it certainly doesn’t compromise on flavour.

    A dry and crisp French rosé that’s perfect for hot days. In the height of summer, we love to serve this wine in a large glass with ice as they do on the French Riviera.
