The numbers that
the label won't show you

In contrast with most foods and beverages, regulations in the U.S. and most other countries do not require wine producers to disclose ingredient or nutritional labeling on wine, and the industry has strongly resisted any legislative efforts to change that.

Accordingly, there's no way (other than asking the winery, which is under no obligation to respond) to determine the exact nutritional analysis of a specific wine.

But this question comes up often, so we have taken the liberty - using information from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and other public sources - of putting together a set of nutritional analyses based on typical wines. We think they'll give you a general idea of what to expect from a glass of your favorite red, white and dessert wines. Please note that specific bottles may vary. Even slightly sweet wines, for example, like White Zinfandel or many Rieslings, will carry more calories from sugar and more carbohydrates than the fully dry red and white wines listed. Wines stronger than usual in alcohol content, like a Chardonnay or Zinfandel at 13.5 percent or more, will also contain a few more calories than the average examples shown.

These charts are presented in the familiar U.S. nutritional-analysis format. We hope you'll find them interesting and useful.
