A small (125ml) glass of dry white wine will have around 85 calories; medium dry will have around 95, and sweet about 120. A large (175ml) glass of red wine will also have 120 calories, while my other favourite drink, a pint of Guinness, has around 170.
How many calories are there in a 250ml glass of white wine?
Large glass (250ml) of average strength red wine = 214 calories = one bag of Cheesy Wotsits. A bottle of average strength red wine = 644 calories = 14 jaffa cakes or McDonald's Cheeseburger and medium fries. Large glass of medium dry white wine = 190 calories = two and a half digestive biscuits.
How many calories are in an average glass of wine?
So a six-ounce glass of wine that has an ABV of 15% has about 144 calories compared to a six-ounce glass of wine that has an ABV of 12%, which has about 115 calories. This has nothing to do with whether the wine is white or red, so don't make calorie assumptions based on the color of your wine.
