    I thought this article from Michael Joseph at Nutrition Advance site suited this thread:

    Low Carb Wine: What Are the Best Options?

    Wine is one of the best drink choices for those who are following a low carb diet.

    However, this depends on the specific wine.

    While some dry wines can be very low in carbs, some sweet wines can contain significant amounts of carbohydrate.

    This in-depth guide presents the best and worst low carb wine options. For each wine, you can find the calorie, carb count, and alcohol by volume (ABV) per glass.

    All nutrition data is per standard 5 oz (150 ml) serving.

    Lots more to read here

    There is conflicting reports about the health benefits or harms of even small amounts of alcohol. Having a mess up liver like most diabetics have, I prefer to err on the safe side.

    Yes, it is always important for each of us to do what we feel is best, and take health considerations into account.

    I must admit I do enjoy a glass of wine with my meal, not necessarily every day … but I will have one tonight. Well it is Friday …  and when working a glass of wine was almost a celebration that the weekend was here or perhaps just a nice way to relax, and even though I'm now retired old habits die hard (as the saying goes).

    All the best Jan
