More Wine Questions From Our Customers!
You have questions, Ted has answers. Ted is back answering some of customers most popular questions.
Q – What are wine legs?
A – Wine legs form on the inside of your glass after the wine is tasted or swirled. Wine legs occur due to the alcohol in the wine. The higher the alcohol the slower and thicker its “legs” will be. Wine legs will not tell you anything about the wine’s quality, taste, flavor etc. They are insignificant and not used in the discussion of wine.
Q – How many calories are in wine?
A – Calories in wine come from sugar and alcohol. A dry low alcohol wine will have the fewest calories. Sugar has fewer calories than alcohol. Here are a few examples of wine varietals and calories based on a 5 oz glass. (These are just an approximate count. They may vary from different brands.)
- Pinot Grigio – 105 Cal
- Sauvignon Blanc – 110 cal
- Chardonnay – 118 cal
- Champagne – 101 cal
- Cabernet – 122 cal
- Pinot Noir – 113 cal
- Malbec – 118 cal
- Zinfandel – 122 cal
- Dry Riesling – 119 cal
- Moscato d’Asti – 121 cal
Don’t stress out too much about calories in wine. Relax and have a glass. Enjoy.

Q – Once the bottle of wine is open, how long will it last?
A – At my place – about on hour! OH! you mean the wine that has not been consumed 😉
Wine begins to change when exposed to air and the wine will deteriorate over time. Full body, rich wines may last 1-2 days after opening. Most wines will be undrinkable after the second day. Keep wine open to air for about a week and you will have vinegar! 😝
