Top 10 low-calorie wine brands

10th April, 2013 by Patrick Schmitt

5 Skinnygirl Wine – 100 calories (148ml)

skinny-girl-wineCredited with kick-starting the low-calorie drinks trend is Skinnygirl, which was created in 2009 for ready-made cocktails by chef, author and TV star Bethenny Frankel.

In March 2012 however, the range was extended to include three wines, each of which promise to contain just 100 calories per 5-ounce serving (148ml) and have 12% abv.

The Skinnygirl Wine Collection comprises a California white blend, red blend and a rosé, with each retailing for US$15, slightly more than new competitor The Skinny Vine.

The brand is now owned by Fortune Brands, following Frankel’s sale of Skinnygirl to the group, which owns Jim Beam Bourbon, in March 2011 for US$8.1 million.

$15 per bottle with 100 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?
