Calories in Riesling Wine
At the end of a long week, it can feel good to kick back with a chilled glass of Riesling, a white wine native to Germany. But when you're watching your weight, you might be concerned about the number of calories you're drinking while you relax. Knowing how many calories are in a standard glass of wine can help you moderate your drinking and keep your weight on track.
Riesling Wine has 80 Calories and 0.07 g of Protein per 100 gram serving according to the nutrition facts provided by the USDA Food Composition Database.
Sampling the Numbers
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a standard glass of wine is 5 ounces 2. This size of glass of Riesling contains around 128 calories. This is approximately the same number of calories as chardonnay, pinot grigio and sauvignon blanc, three other common varieties of white wine. Beyond containing calories, however, white wine doesn't offer any significant source of nutrients. This makes it a source of empty calories, which should be minimized in your diet.
