What type of wine has the most calories?

The exact amount of calories found in a bottle of white wine can vary widely between varieties of wine and different brands. Factors such as the alcohol content, residual sugar levels, and the techniques used on the  winemaking  process, all have an influence over the calorie content of the end product. 

Depending on the Colour

There is some good news for white wine fans - a bottle of white wine will generally have less calories than a bottle of red wine. However, rose wine is on average the lowest calorie wine type, with 70-80 calories per 100ml, compared to 73-83 calories per 100ml for white wine, and 75-85 per 100ml for red wine. 

This is partly due to the fact that red wines tend to have a higher alcohol content, and as we mentioned earlier, alcohol is responsible for the majority of the calories in wine. The rest of the calories in wine come from carbs, which contain around four calories per gram. 

Depending on the Dryness

Dry wines contain less carbs, as they usually have little residual sugar because most or all of the sugar from the grapes has been converted to alcohol during fermentation. Therefore, opting for dry wines with a lower ABV is the best way to choose a lower-calorie bottle of wine. Conversely, you should avoid sweet wines, particularly sweet dessert wines like port that have both a high alcohol content and high sugar content.

How many calories are in white wine on average?

The DrinkAware.com website estimates that a standard 175ml glass of 13%ABV white wine contains approximately 159 calories. That means that a bottle of white wine will contain around 685 calories. However, due  to limited labelling requirements, it can be nearly impossible to find out the calorie content of some bottles of white wine. 

To put that into perspective, that's 100 more calories in a bottle of whine than there are in a big mac or a chocolate muffin.  To burn that amount of calories, the average person would have to run for about an hour - that’s a serious amount of effort!

However, white wines can also contain significantly less calories than this. Wines with a lower alcohol content, generally contain lower calories, as alcohol contains around 7 calories per gram. So if you ever find yourself in the supermarket wondering which bottle of white to choose, your safest bet is to opt for the option with the lower ABV. Typically, most white wines will fall somewhere between 550 calories and 680 calories per bottle.
