It's now possible to enjoy a guilt-free glass (or bottle) of wine from Aldi.
The German supermarket chain announced selected stores in the UK will stock a new range of low-calorie wines.
The Featherweight range includes four different varieties, a Sauvignon, a Merlot, a Rose Zinfandel and a Pinot Grigio.
Coming in at around 50-60 calories, the wines are also low in alcohol content (5.5%).
Sadly, the Featherweight range is not available in Australia yet. However, if you’re in the market for a low-calorie wine, McWilliams Balance range is a popular choice.
Lindeman’s Wines also offers a lower-calorie range of wines.
How low-calorie wines are made
According to an article published on The Conversation, light wines are made by harvesting grapes early.
"The quantity of sugar in the fruit translates to the level of alcohol in the wine; early harvest grapes and wines from cooler climates have naturally lower alcohol without loss of flavour. These wines have around 25% less alcohol and still retain reasonable sensory qualities."
