The Number of Calories in a Glass of Wine

February 25, 2008

Hey Wine Virgin, I have some quick wine questions for you. I just started a diet recently and I wanted to know if having a few or more glasses of wine a day would have any overall effect on me trying to lose weight. So can you tell me what’s the number of calories in a glass of wine? - Kevin in Portland, OR

A few or more glasses of wine a day huh? That doesn’t really equal out to about 10 or more does it? Hey, being a functioning alcoholic isn’t a bad thing, so long as you are able to go to work, run your errands… take care of the kids. I have to commend you though for trying to lose weight while still keeping your alcohol consumption steady. If you can’t indulge on an entire package of bonbons then at least you can have your lush wine.

So as far as the number of calories in a glass of wine, dry varieties have fewer calories than sweeter ones. For example, a dry glass has a little over 100 calories and a glass of sweet dessert wine has a whopping 230 or more calories. If you drink a glass before dinner which I’m sure that you have plenty more than just one, and on top of that another glass with with your food and then a sweeter variety for dessert, you’ve added definitely more than 400 + calories to your meal.

Since I answered your wine questions, I have to ask you this one. Do you think it’s the bonbons that are making you portly or perhaps all those beautiful varieties of fermented grape that you enjoy on an all too regular basis? Come on, I’m curious!!

    […] if you are not big on the idea of putting back a couple glasses per day or are worried about the calories in a glass of wine, there has been a lot of hoopla about the famed red wine pill. If you are willing to take that leap […]
