Alcoholic beverages are not required to carry nutrition facts labels. The calorie content of alcoholic beverages is often a mystery to many people. If you are trying to count calories, accounting for your glass of wine at dinner can be a struggle. Caloric content of wine varies depending on the type of grape used, how long the wine is fermented, and the amount of sugar added to the product. To help eliminate some of the mystery, the USDA has come up with an average caloric content for various types of wine.
