10 of the world’s lowest calorie wines

7. WW Cense

Calories per 5oz (140ml) glass: 85
ABV: 9.6%

In 2015 WW (Formally Weight Watchers) teamed up with Cense Cellars to produce a new low calorie wine, leading to the creation of its new range of WW Cense Wines, produced with winemaker Haydn Mouat and the Truett-Hurst Winery in the Dry Creek Valley and Russian River Valley of California’s Sonoma County. The range initially launched with a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and a rose from California.

Both wines are only 3 “SmartPoints”, which equates to around 85 calories per 5oz serving (140ml). A Methode Champenoise sparkling wine from California and a Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles has since been added, all coming in at 3 “SmartPoints” each.

Speaking at the time of its launch, Mouat said: “We spent two years working with WW researching Cense Wine. We went back and forth, tasting, testing, and tweaking, prior to perfecting it! The first Cense Wine varietal launched was Sauvignon Blanc.

“It’s a light, aromatic blend. And the second, the California Rosé, has floral aromas with strawberry and cherry hints. The quality of this wine is something I’m really proud of. It’s a great wine, it’s a serious wine, and I’m really excited about the relationship we have with WW.”
