Wine: Calories & Nutrition Facts
Sorted by Brand
Wine is not a good source of nutrition for the most part – most of the calories come from carbohydrate rather than protein and fats. Red wine does contain certain vitamins and minerals, however. Refer to the calorie calculator for your favorite wine to determine the calories and nutritional value.
Vitamins and MineralsRed grapes are the primary ingredient in red wine and they are full of valuable vitamins and minerals. The mineral found in the highest concentration in red wine is manganese – a single 5-ounce serving of red wine contains about 0.2 milligrams of manganese which is between 9 and 11% your daily recommended value. Red wine is also a good source of various B vitamins as well as vitamins A and K.
Cholesterol LevelsNot only is wine a good source of certain vitamins and minerals, but it may also help to boost your HDL – high-density lipoprotein (good cholesterol) levels. Wine may also help to prevent your LDL or bad cholesterol levels from getting too high and damaging the lining of your arteries. According to a recent study, individuals who consumed a glass or two of wine each day had significantly higher HDL levels because the wine helped to lower LDL cholesterol before it clogged the vessels and arteries.
The moderate consumption of wine has been linked to several health benefits including improved heart health and reduced risk for Type 2 diabetes. Refer to the calorie calculator for your favorite wine to determine the calories and nutritional value.
