According to winepros.org, the pinot noir grape is one of the oldest varieties to be used for making red wine. It is a popular red, but it has a reputation for being difficult to grow.

Identification

Pinot noir is a type of red wine. The grapes that make up this wine are grown all over the world, mostly in cooler regions, but the grape is most often associated with the Burgundy region of France.

Calories

Each winery produces the same grape variety differently, so a pinot noir red wine has a varying taste across brands. A specific brand may have a slightly different calorie count, depending on its specific sugar and alcohol content.
