"Low-Carb" Wine

A major newswire states that a large winemaker has declared its new 2-carb wines to be “the first introduction of low-carb wines” in the US. Both the red and white contain 2 grams of carbohydrate (after the scientifically and legally required rounding of their figures) per 5 oz serving.

This is the same average carbohydrate content for any dry white wine; 3 grams is the average for most dry reds. These “low-carb” wines are not the first to do anything except take advantage of the new (interim) regulations allowing alcohol beverages with 7 g carbohydrate or less to be labeled as “low carb.” Just about all spirits, dry wines and light beers already fall into this category (alcohol contains substantial calories but very little carbohydrate).
