What is Nutritional Information?
Wine has always constituted an important part of diets, gastronomy and conviviality and changed from an important source of nutrition to a cultural complement to food. Allied to a balanced diet, moderate consumption is important for a healthy lifestyle and for well-being.
Wine, despite its long tradition, is not free from calories. To know more about our wines and spirits, please consult the information below. The Mediterranean Diet, recognised by UNESCO as part of its 'Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity' programme is a tradition originating in mediterranean countries. This diet is characterised by its high consumption of fresh fruit, vegetables, dry fruit, cereals and fish, and its low consumption of meat, especially red meat. The principal source of fat is olive oil that is used for seasoning and preparation. Moderate, regular consumption of wine is an integral part of mediterranean cultures and diets.
Balance, in relation to food as well as drink, constitutes a fundamental element of a healthy lifestyle. Quality and quantity are, equally, important when one speaks of diet. Excess consumption will only be harmful to the health of the individual.
Therefore, it is important to carefully choose what we eat and drink, to savour it slowly and avoid excess.
HOW MANY CALORIES DOES WINE HAVE?
Ethanol is the primary source of the calories contained in alcoholic drinks (1g of alcohol = 7kcal).
Therefore, a 10g unit of alcohol contains 70kcal.
HOW MANY GRAMS OF ETHANOL DOES WINE HAVE?
The exact calorific content of wine depends on the alcohol and residual sugar that remain after the fermentation of the grape juice (1g of sugar = 4 Kcal).
Therefore, the total number of calories in viticultural products can vary from harvest to harvest depending on the wine (dry, semi-dry, semi-sweet, sweet).
