Diet or no diet, sometimes you just need a glass of vino—and low-sugar, low-carb wine options make it a bit healthier to imbibe.
Ideally, a keto wine will have zero residual sugar and less than 13.5 percent ABV (alcohol by volume.
When it comes to finding a wine that fits within the keto diet, your safest bet is to stay on the dry side. Wines with high residual sugar content will taste sweet, while dry wines are relatively low-carb.
Socializing and dieting don’t usually go together, but dry sparkling whites (like Champagne, Cava and prosecco) are exceptionally low-carb—just 2 grams per 5-ounce serving. Look for the words “Brut,” “Extra Brut” or “Brut Nature,” and you’ll be in the clear.
