Red wine calories


Introduction

Wine is nothing but than a mixture of water, alcohol and grape flavors. The winemaker begins by crushing the grapes and then adding yeast to set in motion the fermenting process and the yeast converts the sugar and oxygen in the juice into ethyl alcohol. Water contains no calories, fat or carbohydrates and the grape flavor represents a very small percentage of the total wine, the sugars in the grapes are gone (being converted into alcohol) so essentially all of the food values you are consuming come from the alcohol and the alcohol alone. The number of wine calories simply depends on alcohol.
