Keto Diet Wines You Can Try!
The Keto Diet is all the rage right now. If you’re on the bandwagon of the keto diet and missing the occasional glass of wine check out these options that could still keep you on the bandwagon. Here, five wines that are keto diet-approved.
Dry wines are the lowest in carbohydrates, and this refreshing white is one of the driest and crispest around (and with only 3 grams of carbs per serving to boot). Classic Sauv Blancs will have notes of apple, melon, and grass, which makes them perfect companions to delicate fish dishes and green veggies topped with fresh herbs.
Looking for something to pair with that grass-fed steak dinner? An elegant Merlot with its notes of red fruit and medium body is a perfect choice…and has just 3.7 grams of carbs per serving. Impress dining companions by ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the wine’s soft-as-silk tannins (while inwardly feeling smug about sticking to your diet).
Socializing and dieting don’t usually go together, but sparkling whites (like Champagne, Cava, and Prosecco) are exceptionally low-carb—just 2 grams per serving. So you can stay out late and sip some bubbly with your friends, all while staying 100 percent keto.
Not sure whether to serve red or white? Try a Pinot Noir—its lightness will complement fish and salads, yet it’s complex enough to stand up to richer ingredients like mushrooms and duck. Tasting notes of berries, roses, and vanilla make this one a winner—for you and your diet (3.4 grams of carbs per serving).
This zesty white has just 3 grams of carbs per five-ounce glass, and we love its bright acidity and flavors of lemon-lime, stone fruit, green apple, and honeysuckle. It pairs well with creamy sauces (which is totally allowed on the diet, by the way), seafood and a hot summer’s day.
