The Dirty Deets

While calorie count ranges based on wine variety, you’ll land at about 129 calories per five-ounce serving of white wine. The average pour is closer to six or more ounces, so be conservative when you drink and keep in mind that the American Heart Association recommends that men consume no more than two drinks per day and women limit alcohol consumption to one drink per day.

  • Besides the calories, your glass of blanc is full of antioxidants, thanks to phenolic compounds that help your body fight oxidative stress. Speaking of stress, a glass of white, a table of friends and some fresh air are all good at reducing stress hormones and keeping you well.
  • The antioxidant composition of European white wines is comparable to that of olive oil, and whites may be just as effective as reds in facilitating healthy heart and artery function.
  • Research suggests that moderate consumption of alcohol may support weight-loss efforts. That little glass of white wine may be helping you stay slim!
