Wine has fascinated mankind for thousands of years. Great inventions from the antique tree press to computer-controlled tank presses have revolutionized wine making. Winemakers made wine an object of desire all over the world.
Wine in moderation, is considered keto-friendly. In the recent years, a number of relatively low carb wines hit the market to choose from. Keto-friendly wines are usually certified to contain only 1 gram of carbs per bottle.
If you feel like celebrating the "Valentine's Day" or simply enjoy your chef mastered Comfort Keto meals with a glass or two of low carb wine, please keep in mind that it can take just two glasses of wine to chisel away a significant part of your daily total carb count. This is a challenge if you’re struggling to reach or maintain ketosis. So, please enjoy in moderation. Consider stopping after one or two small glasses and always drink alcohol with a meal to keep your blood sugar balanced.
Much like beer manufacturers with more options for low-carb beers, winemakers are also taking note to cater to the low-carb crowd. Here are a few keto-friendly wine brands which are paving the way for low-sugar and low-carb options that also taste great.
Happy wine drinking!
