Gallo Zinfandel wine is produced by the Ernest & Julio Gallo Twin Valley Wine Vineyards, from the Zinfandel grape. The wine can vary widely in its flavor but reliably provides about 9 percent alcohol.

Description

Gallo café Zinfandel ranges from a light bistro-style wine, to an off-dry Rosé, to a rich powerful white wine. Though the fruity flavors vary, Gallo describes the wine as having a fresh strawberry and juicy peach flavor.

Calories

Gallo Zinfandel wine has 21 calories per oz. A 3-oz. serving has 63 calories and a 5-oz. serving contains 105 calories.

Health Benefits

Zinfandel calories come with benefits. Both white and red wine contain alcohol and non-alcoholic phytochemicals that, when consumed in moderation, can reduce the risk of certain cancers and heart disease and can slow the progression of neurological degenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s, reports Today Health.

Caution

If you consume too much wine, you lose the health benefits and exposed yourself to varied health risks, such as weight gain and elevated triglycerides. Today Health recommends no more than 10 oz. per day for men and 5 oz. per day for women.
