What You Need To Know About Low-Carb Food & Wine Pairing 

Now that you have your dinner and dessert sorted, you’ll want to think about beverages. A good keto-friendly wine should have low alcohol (13.5% ABV or less) and have very little (if any) residual sugar. Ideally, this will look like a dry wine with 0 g of carbs per 5 oz serving. 

The best keto wines are Chardonnay, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, to name a few.

Here are some of the best low carb choices for wines and what to avoid. 

Wine being poured into a glass

Low Carb Wines Suggestions

  • Tsantali Naoussa Greece Xinomavro 2016
  • Franciscan Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
  • Cupcake Vineyards California Chardonnay 2016
  • Dr. Loosen Mosel Valley ‘Urziger Wurzgarten’ Dry Riesling 2016

Wines to avoid

Wines to avoid are those with higher alcohol and higher sugar.

Higher alcohol wines are also naturally high in sugar. These include:

  • Pinotage
  • Zinfandel
  • Shiraz
  • Grenache

And sweeter wines (30g/L or more residual sugar):

  • Port
  • Moscato
  • Other dessert wines
