According to research firm Nielsen, online alcohol sales in the United States have jumped more than 240% during the coronavirus outbreak. It’s easy to feel guilty pouring yourself another glass of wine, but if you’re looking for a low-sugar, vegan-friendly option that is designed to fit within healthy lifestyles, I’m happy to introduce FitVine.
FitVine shared with me a variety of its best-selling wines, and the brand’s high standards run constant across the board. Although each wine varies slightly in terms of calories and sugar content, they contain an average of 113 calories and 0.2 grams of sugar per five-ounce glass.
My go-to wine is sauvignon blanc, so naturally, it was the first bottle I reached for. I generally enjoy a wine that delivers a crispness that is not too dry nor too sweet. FitVine’s sauvignon blanc goes down smooth and leaves you craving another glass.
Next up is the FitVine rosé. Summer sunsets on Lake Minnetonka is what I think of when I drink rosé. This one has light notes of raspberry and strawberry, making it fruity and fresh. I loved this wine just as much as the sauvignon blanc, if not more.
If I’m being totally honest, I wasn’t as excited to try the cabernet as I haven’t developed an affinity for red wine. That said, this one has a rich, full-bodied taste that I thoroughly enjoyed; it wasn’t too heavy and had a less intense flavor than most red wines I’ve tried in the past.
FitVine wine truly checks all my boxes: low-sugar, vegan-friendly, less than 120 calories per glass, a great variety of options and no hangover — all while coming from a company that supports you living out your healthiest lifestyle, whatever that may look like for you.
