Does dry wine have less calories than sweet wine?

Dry wines seem to have less sugar - does that mean that they have fewer calories?


Answer by  Lizamarie (49)

Dry wine contains less sugar than sweet wines by far. Dry wine ferments longer and uses up the sugars in this process. Less sugar equals less calories.


Answer by  serendip (408)

For a dry wine, all the sugars have been converted to alcohol. Sweet wines usually have the same amount of alcohol, but have added calories from the sugar.


Answer by  Britt (453)

Dry wine of any color, does have less sugar, and does have less calorie as well. Example: Dry white wine has 66 calories per 100ml, while sweet has 94 calories.


Answer by  latoia (6)

I would think that dry wine does have less calories. Sweet wine has great taste and more sugar, therefore there will probably be more calories within. Another thing that makes me think that a sweet wine would have more calories is that it's also referred to as a desert wine. When I think desert, I think calories.

An ounce of dry white table wine has about 79 calories per ounce. A four ounce glass would contain roughly 300 calories. Sweet wines or dessert wins contain about 47 calories per ounce, which would make the average four ounce serving just under 200 calories.

Yes it does. Most of the time they add sugar sweet wines. But sometimes they don't, per examle a sauternes. They harvest the grapes very late in the season.
