Do you often wonder how many calories are in your white wine each time you pour a glass? Although we do not necessarily condone a lifestyle of counting calories, we do encourage you to be aware of how much sugar and carbohydrates are in the white wine that you are drinking.
Relaxing with a glass or two of wine should always be an enjoyable experience, any time of day and any time of year. There should never be stress or worry. Wine is one of life’s little pleasures, and at SYLTBAR, we pride ourselves in taking the pleasure of drinking wine very seriously. That’s why our family owned-and-operated vineyard in Friuli, Italy has worked tirelessly for over one hundred years to bring you the most delicious, 100% naturally produced wine that is not only vegan, organic and free of all chemicals and additives, but also incredibly low in sulfites and sugar, and low in calories too! On top of all that, SYLTBAR wines are also certified by the Italian Green Project, which provides producers with a set of actions, behaviors and procedures to follow in order to remain environmentally friendly and sustainable in production.
Have we got your attention now? Thought so. Let’s dive into white wine calories per glass a bit further.
How many calories are in a glass of white wine?
Typically, a 6-ounce glass of Pinot Grigio is around 140 calories, and Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are around 160 calories. When compared to these white wine varietals, SYLTBAR fine wines are a better choice if you are looking for a lower calorie option.
Pinot Grigio White Wine Calories
The ‘White Linen’ Pinot Grigio is 125 calories and 0.6 grams of sugar per 6 ounce serving, but still holds its own with a 13% ABV. This crisp and refreshing white wine gets its name due to its light and airy nature. It’s fresh and clean, just like white linen. Even the most sophisticated white wine drinker will be taken back by its unique flavor and aroma.
From our wine experts: Serve White Linen at 50-53.6 °F and pair it with dishes that include ingredients such as ham and salami, fish, artichokes, or preparing a meal such as mushroom risotto.
Friulano White Wine Calories
The ‘Silk’ Friulano is what we like to call “the Sauvignon Blanc of Italy.” It is actually pretty rare to find this particular wine in the United States. It gives off a sense of elegance and sophistication, which is where it gets the name ‘silk.’ A 6 ounce serving is 125 calories and 0.65 grams of sugar, but also boasts a 13% ABV just like its sister wine, White Linen.
From our wine experts: Serve Silk at 50-53.6 °F and pair it with dishes that include ingredients such as ham and salami, fish, artichokes, or preparing a meal such as mushroom risotto.
Pinot Grigio Ramato White Wine Calories
‘Junior,’ our Pinot Grigio Ramato, is an old world white wine, made in the traditional 1970s style where the grapes are left to macerate in their skins overnight to deeply develop the flavor and color. This particular wine is a dark apricot shade, with much more depth than today’s common Pinot Grigio. The calorie and sugar content of this wine is remarkable — only 98 calories and 0.55 grams of sugar per 6 ounce serving! Just like its sister wines, it too is 13% ABV.
From our wine experts: Serve Junior at 50-53.6 °F and pair it with dishes that include ingredients such as prosciutto, salami, shellfish, pasta, and white meat like chicken or turkey.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, a typical 5 ounce glass of white wine has 1.4 grams of sugar, which would mean that 6 ounces has about 1.68. That’s more than double the amount of sugar in a 6 ounce glass of any of the three SYLTBAR white wine choices!
No Added Sulfite Wine
As a reminder, SYLTBAR wines have absolutely no added sulfites (which means no added preservatives), so we highly recommend consuming within two days of opening the bottle. We also want to remind you of the reason for these SYLTBAR white wines being more calories than our sparkling varieties, Mr Premium Prosecco and Mrs Sparkling Rosé. This is because our still fine wines are higher in alcohol content, 13% vs 11.5%. When it comes to alcohol content and calorie count, the higher the ABV, the higher the calories.
Another important thing to remember about SYLTBAR still wines is that they are all vintage. All SYLTBAR white wines are vintage 2018, and our red wine, Cashmere Cabernet Franc, is vintage 2017. This aspect of the wine is very important, especially when it comes to getting the full experience (minus any additives) from the grapes used in production.
SYLTBAR fine wines are exclusively sold online, or you can find them at a local family-owned Miami shop, Milam’s Market. This is because our winery only produces a limited amount of fine wine. A real winery, not one that mass produces wines in big factories, only has so many resources to use each year to produce wine, and that is why we must be very selective in where we sell our wines.
Mr and Mrs SYLTBAR, on the other hand, are non-vintage (NV), which is the case with all Proseccos. This is because Prosecco is best when it’s fresh and young, and does not need to be aged the way other still wines are. We always include the production date on our Prosecco bottles, so you know you are getting the freshest product possible. Many other Prosecco producers do not disclose their production dates, because they add sulfites to increase the shelf life so the wine can last much, much longer than a Prosecco without any added sulfites. This means it might not be as fresh off the farm as you think.
