Keto Wines For a Carb Conscious World

Keto Wines For a Carb Conscious World

I know many of you are on a Keto diet, or you are hearing about Keto diets from your friends who are on them.

Even though I’m not on a Keto diet…perhaps I should be, I do celebrate the successes of those of you who are doing so well on your diet.  Well done.

Given what we do at Direct Cellars, I have been reading up on the Keto diet and how it affects wine consumption. There is some very confusing information out there, but here are the basics:

  • If you drink too much alcohol, it will divert your body’s calorie-burning process away from fat burning. (It instead starts burning off the alcohol first.)
  • If you drink too much, you can reduce your inhibitions and end up breaking your diet if by eating unhealthy snacks and junk food.

…but there is still alcohol you can still enjoy on your diet, including low carb/keto-friendly wines.  

Here are some tips:

  • Avoid sweeter wines like Moscato and Zinfandel, …and some Rieslings (yep, even though most are floral they are not all sweet and can be Keto-Friendly.)
  • If you love Sangria, you are out of luck as the sweetness of the fruit juice will cause you issues with your diet.

What is a reasonable safety zone?

  • Limit yourself to a single 5 oz pour of wines under 5 carbs.

Fortunately for you, the following wines from DC meet those requirements and are labeled as Keto-Friendly in the DC wine shop.
