Low calorie wines are popular these days and we’ve increased our offering this summer. You can find these wines in the aisle with Sake and Port or on an end cap near the white wines.
Kim Crawford Illuminate – $14.99
The wines are low in alcohol (7% abv) and low in calories (70 per 5 oz glass).
We offer both Rose and Sauvignon Blanc
KJ is new to the lite wine market and, to date, only offers a Chardonnay. The wine is lower in calories (85 per 5 oz glass) and just 9% abv.
Matua produces a popular New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and has recently added a low calorie, which they market as 25% lower in calories and alcohol. That means it is about 110 calories per 5 oz glass and 9% alcohol.
Cense – $10.99
Oddly, Cense doesn’t have an obvious website but seems to partner with Weight Watchers on a low calorie (85 per 5 oz glass) and low alcohol wine (9.6%). For those interested, a glass is 3 WW points.
Light Hearted (by Cupcake) – $8.99
These are new wines to OSL but there is a full range of red and white varietals. All of the wines are low calorie (80 calories per 5 oz glass), low sugar (<1g) and low alcohol (8%)
Lower carb and lower calorie wines (but not lower alcohol)
Simple Grape produces low carb, low sugar wines but they are only modestly lower in calories (124 calories per 5 oz glass) but full alcohol (13.5%)
We try to have all four varietals in stock – Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio.
Fit Vine was an early entrant into the low carb, low sugar market. Similar to Simple Grape, the wines are modestly lower in calories but full alcohol.
They have a range of varietals, we generally stock Cabernet, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
