This is always a tough subject for me to write about. We all have our weaknesses, right?
While it is well known that wine (particularly red wine) had a number of health benefits, it is still the case that it contains a significant amount of calories per glass and as such, must be enjoyed in moderation, particularly if your goal is weight-loss.
Please don’t hates me but I have set out the average calories per glass below.
|Cabernet Sauvignon||125 calories||Chardonnay||118 calories|
|Shiraz||123 calories||Sauvignon Blanc||122 calories|
|Pinot Noir||122 calories||Pinot Grigio||123 calories|
|Port||250 calories||Dry Champagne||95 calories|
|Sweeter Champagnes||125 calories|
Based on 5 ounce glass
On the plus side it contains less calories per drink than most other alcoholic beverages and assists with coping with the rigmarole’s of busy family life!
