According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), a standard 5oz serving of wine contains 123 calories. A typical 750ml bottle of wine comprises around 5 servings of wine and about 615 calories in total. Of course, different types of wine have varying caloric values, depending on their alcohol and sugar content.
The higher the ABV of the wine, the higher the calorie content. The winemaking process and sugar content also influence its calorie count. Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and dry sparkling wines are good choices if you're looking for low-calorie wines. Meanwhile, the biggest culprits include sugar-packed dessert wines. According to the USDA, red wine contains about 0.9g of sugar per 5oz serving, while dessert wines contain around 8g of sugar per 3.5oz serving. That's a massive difference! Fortified wines like Port, Sherry, or Madeira also have a higher ABV and caloric content.
You can gain weight from drinking too much wine if you consume more calories than your body burns. Moderation is key. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans define moderate drinking as two or fewer drinks per day for men and one or fewer drinks per day for women. While wine isn't calorie-laden, it's easy to drink it in excess (please, we don't want to stop after just one!). And if you're overpouring, these calories can quickly stack up. Science has also suggested that drinking too much wine causes your body to prioritize the digestion of wine before other nutrients, such as carbs and fats. Thus, these nutrients may be stored in your body as fat.
Well, why not? Tracking the calories in wine gives you a better idea of your daily calorie consumption. Of course, wine isn't the highest-calorie alcoholic drink out there, but it's easy to drink more than the recommended 1 to 2 drink limit each day. Sunnyside helps you log your daily alcohol consumption, so you know if you're drinking too much. With this app, you'll learn how to evaluate your drinking habits and nurture healthier ones.
Sunnyside will send daily prompts and reminders to track your alcohol intake. You can also keep count of your drinks as you have them by texting emojis, words, or numbers in the app. Best of all, Sunnyside creates personalized weekly plans that help you achieve your wellness goals. You'll receive insight into your progress, including the number of calories you've successfully cut out of your routine.

You’re joining a community of members who have been through exactly what you’re going through and have achieved amazing results. Here’s what some of them have said about using Sunnyside to evaluate and improve their drinking habits.
When I first started I was a bit leery about the whole thing. I am 70 years old and retired and didn’t think that I needed someone to tell me how much to drink. So I took the 15 day free trial and found out that it really helped me control my drinking. These guys are not trying to change you, just your drinking habits, which has help me a lot. Sometimes I would drink just to drink and that came to a stop. I still do what I want to do, I'm just doing it differently and it really working well for me. - Rene
Over the last two years I became a bit of a heavy drinker. After 84 days with Sunnyside, I'm now a moderate drinker, on my way to becoming a social drinking. The transition was easier than I thought. -Ted
I've been trying to cut back on my drinking for years and this is the only way I've actually done it. I'm so extremely happy with just the mindfulness that it has provided me. It's not judgy. It doesn't make you quit immediately. It is just a way to cut back and be mindful of your drinking and I really appreciate it. It's honestly transformed my life. -Stefani
I love this program - it’s simple and supportive. I feel like I’m on my way to making some lasting changes without ever feeling shamed. Also the coaches are real & respond personally (not just bots). -Lucy
