Wine and diabetes, is there low carb wine?

Indeed, there is.  I haven’t tasted any personally but, so far there are two popular low carb wines.  They are called One.6 Chardonnay and One.9 Merlot.  How many carbs are in these wines?

The number is impressive, in fact, surprising.  The Chardonnay has 1.6 grams of carbohydrates per 5 oz glass and the Merlot has—you guessed it, 1.9 grams of carbs per 5 oz serving.

From what I read…they taste pretty good. 

Important note:

Do remember that although alcohol in wine is NOT a carbohydrate, our bodies seem to metabolize it much like it does a carbohydrate.  For some, this means you may need to plan for this by giving a little more insulin to cover the wine.

Anyway, if you are interested in knowing, these two wines are produced by Brown-Forman Wines, can be found in stores all over the US, and cost only about $10-$13 a 750ml bottle.

If you’ve tried this, fill us in to the taste!  In any case I’ll look for it during this week’s trip to the store.  I may have to go to a wine shop, I think.  I’m so curious it just may be worthwhile.
