What is White Wine?

Using our advice will help you intergrate this favourite drink into a healthy balanced regime. White wine is made from green grapes, which have been fermented to make them alcoholic.

Dry white wine generally has slightly less calories than red wine. On average a six ounce glass contains approximately one hundred and twenty calories.

Calorie Difference Between Red and White Wine

The same size glass of red would come to one hundred and twenty eight. However, white desert wines, which have a higher sugar content, may contain far more calories than red wine.


Champagne, which is a form of sparkling white wine from the Champagne region in France, is considerably higher. An average flute glass contains one hundred and sixty three calories.

This is largely due to the fact that sugar is generally added to sparkling wines before they are bottled.
