Wine has long been a symbol of indulgence and celebration, but as society becomes more health-conscious, individuals are seeking ways to enjoy their favorite beverages without compromising their well-being.
Enter the world of low-calorie and low-sugar wines – something that the SYLTBAR brand represents very well. Although this has become a trend in the mainstream wine industry, with many brands using winemaking methods to ensure their wines are lower in calories and sugar — for example, using specific additives to remove sugar from the wine — SYLTBAR has been able to achieve this 100% naturally. The result allows you to enjoy the pleasure of drinking wine while still being able to commit to a healthy lifestyle.
The Shift to Low-Calorie and Low-Sugar Wines
Traditional wines often carry a heavier caloric and sugar load than most people realize. The calorie content of wines can vary widely, but on average, a glass of wine can contribute anywhere from 120 to 220 calories – roughly equivalent to a sugary soda. Additionally, sugars naturally present in grapes contribute to the alcohol content during fermentation, elevating sugar content in the final product But then there is the fact that most mass-produced brands are adding extra sugar to sweeten the flavor, adding even more calories to the final product. These factors have led to concerns about weight gain, blood sugar spikes, and other health-related issues among wine enthusiasts.
The need for additional sugar comes from mass-produced brands cutting corners to save time and money. Without a long enough fermentation process, the grapes do not fully develop and added sugar is needed to make the wine taster better. SYLTBAR uses a long fermentation process, up to 4 months, which allows the grapes to reach their full potential. What’s left is very minimal residual sugar, but full flavor, making it unnecessary to add anything to the wine.
Understanding the potential health risks associated with traditional wines, both consumers and winemakers have embraced the concept of low-calorie and low-sugar wines. By applying advanced winemaking techniques coupled with a respect for the environment and the health and wellbeing of consumers, winemakers can achieve wines with significantly reduced caloric and sugar content, without sacrificing flavor or quality. The emphasis is on preserving the natural essence of the grape while curbing the excesses that can impact health.
Our producers have been doing this for over a hundred years in their vineyard in Friuli, Italy, where our collection of 100% naturally produced SYLTBAR wines are made.
