Top 10 low-calorie wine brands10th April, 2013 by Patrick Schmitt
3. Weight Watchers Fruity White & Rosé – 75 calories (125ml)
Produced under licence for Weight Watchers by Reh Kendermann is Fruity White, an off-dry German wine which contains just 75 calories per 125ml serving.
Comprising a white with 8.5% abv and a rosé with 9%, the wines are “medium-sweet” and employ Weight Watchers’ points scheme, promising drinkers just two points per glass.
Reh Kendermann became outraged last year when Banrock Station Light – a 5.5% variant of Accolade Wine’s brand – claimed it had a link with Weight Watchers.
As reported by the drinks business at the time, Chris Stirk, director of Weight Watchers Products and Licensing explained, “Reh Kendermann GmbH is exclusively licensed to produce Weight Watchers wine and is the only wine range to include Weight WatchersProPoints® values on the label.”
Continuing, he said: “Contrary to a recent press release, no ‘partnership’ exists between Weight Watchers and either Accolade Wines or Banrock Station Light.”
However, since that time, McWilliams has produced a range which is also endorsed by the UK’s largest dieting brand.
RRP £5 with 75 calories per 125ml serve.
