Top 10 low-calorie wine brands

10th April, 2013 by Patrick Schmitt

9 Lower alcohol Marlborough Sauvignon – average 90 calories (148ml)

bella-low-calorie-sauvignon-blancAs the UK’s best selling variety, it is perhaps no surprise that Sauvignon Blanc has been the focus of vinous innovation in recent history.

And along with sparkling variants from Marlborough – source of the world’s most pungent Sauvignon – come lower-alcohol wines.

First to the market was Forrest Winery, but others have now followed, creating a whole category of lower-alcohol Marlborough “Savvies”.

Two notable lauches are “First Pick” – a 9% abv offering from Constellation-owned Kim Crawford – and the 9% “Bella” Sauvignon Blanc from Invivo Wines (pictured).

For the future, Marlborough Sauvignon brand leader Brancott Estate is bringing the lower alcohol “Flight” to the UK later this year, although the range extension is already available in New Zealand.

The wines contain an average of 90 calories per 148ml/5 ounce serve.

    Is there anywhere in the SW13 area you would recommend as having a good range of low alcohol wines?

    Thanks and regards

    Low calorie wine is great for your health, but in my opinion is tastes better too!

    I am not sure how I feel about the low calorie wines. I heard the alcohol content is lower than regular wine. For me portion control is the key so I love products like Stack Wine. They are individually portioned wine glasses, which prevent me from over pouring. That way I can stick with one or two glasses instead of accidentally finishing an entire bottle. Plus there is no waste. I would recommend checking them out as an alternative http://www.drinkstack.com.

  4. We do not advertise our Blanc limé with this low calorie category but actually, it is only 85 calories per 5-ounce serving. Thus lower than Skinny girl or skinny vine.. Should we renamed it Skinny limé?
