Pinot Grigio is a white wine that is a hybrid of the Pinot Noir grape. Pinot Grigio is a popular choice among wine drinkers everywhere, and goes well with light dishes including fish, fruit and salads. Many dieters that want to lose weight still want to enjoy a nice glass of Pinot Grigio. This has led many to ask the question of how many calories in a glass of Pinot Grigio are there?
The answer depends on the size of the glass and brand. An average wine glass serving of five ounces of Pinot Grigio has 121-123 calories in it. It also has 3-4 grams of carbohydrates. That’s not bad. It shows that you can certainly enjoy a glass of Pinot Grigio on occasion.
But be careful. Health experts recommend people that are trying to lose weight to not drink more than three glasses per week. The calories can add up very quickly. All wine drinkers know how easy it is to polish off an entire bottle between themselves and a friend at dinner. An entire 750ml bottle of Pinot Grigio has 630 calories in it. Divide that in half and you’ve just consumed 315 calories - in addition to dinner. It’s easy to see how fast the calories, and the pounds, can pile on. To keep the calories down try sticking to one four ounce serving with dinner, which equals about 100 calories.
