Have you ever considered how many calories are in your glass of wine? Luckily, my husband and I don’t drink much but even we are fans of mulled wine.
According to this article by The Telegraph, the average wine drinker puts on 7lbs (or 3.2kg) every year by virtue of their wine drinking. So, how many calories are we talking about exactly? Using a list of popular red and white wines from icohol.com, I did a little research the results of which are presented below.
My wine glasses which look pretty average to me take about 150ml (5.3 ounces) so all the below numbers are based on that volume.
So there you have it. The next time you have a glass of wine know that you are adding about 130 calories to your meal. If you have three glasses, that’s almost 400 calories. Just to put that in perspective, 400 calories is what I target to have for my entire lunch.
If you like to round your meal off with a few glasses of red port, a wine glass’s worth of consumption will add another 250 calories to that sumptuous meal.
Of course, some say red wine has health benefits, however, that is an entire subject on its own to be tackled in another blog.
