Who says you can’t have it all?
If you’re a wine lover looking for something low in calories and sugar but full of flavor, NH Liquor & Wine Outlet has just the thing for you: a new collection of low-calorie wine and wine-based beverages that not only taste delicious but are easy on the waistline. These new delights are available in limited quantities, so pick up yours soon.
FitVine Wine labels provide all the nutritional details a health-conscious consumer might want, from sugar content to calorie and carb counts, so you’ll know what you’re getting in every glass. And because FitVine wines are vegan, gluten-free, free of flavor additives, and have less than 1 gram of sugar per serving, you can feel better about drinking them. Choose from reds, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Zinfandel, Rose, Pinot Noir, and Syrah, or try FitVine’s clean and crisp whites, which include a Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Prosecco. FitVine bottles are easy to spot, with vibrant colors and a distinctive design that features a silhouette of a sprinter holding a glass of wine in one hand and a bunch of grapes in the other.
As Decoy Seltzer’s name implies, Decoy’s new sparklers in luscious fruit flavors will lure you in—but wait, where are the calories? Not here. Refreshing and sophisticated, these premium wine-based seltzers, made with Decoy’s exceptional wines, weigh in at only 80 calories and contain zero added sugar. Choose from four crisp varietals: a Rosé with black cherry and notes of strawberry, melon, and guava; a Sauvignon Blanc with vibrant lime, grapefruit, peach, and lemon zest; or two Chardonnays, one made with clementine orange, another crafted with lemon and ginger. Both of Decoy Seltzer’s Chardonnays have notes of apple, pear, and vanilla. All of Decoy’s seltzers are delicious and brand new in 2021.
