Calories in Wine

A glass of wine can contain between 110 and 300 calories, depending on the type of wine, its alcohol content and the serving size. The number of calories in 4 ounces of wine, based on style, varies from 80 calories for white zinfandel to 185 calories for ruby port. This equates to 160 to 330 calories per cup. This data is generic for wine based on styles, however, and different wines may vary in their caloric content, depending on the sweetness and alcohol content.
