40 'Low Sugar' Wines You Should Be Drinking If You Want To Avoid Hangovers

Your favourite drink without the guilt.

If you're reading this right now, I bet you love everything about wine. Wine is one of those drinks that never fails. It's perfect for basically every occasion. Going through a rough breakup? Drink some wine! Sitting in an awkward work dinner? Drink some wine! Spending a girls night in with your friends? Drink a LOT of wine!

Like I said, wine is great for literally every occasion. But the only problem is that there can be a lot of sugar added to wine, especially in those sweet wines that we all love.

Sure, drinking sweet wine can delicious and it's great in moderation, but we all know that they can lead to some pretty rough hangovers the next day. Drinking wines with much less sugar can help you both avoid those brutal hangovers as well as helping you lose a bit of weight if that's what your goal is.

Some wines can have over 70 g/L of sugar and even more if it's an ice or dessert wine! So if when you're looking for a low sugar wine you should be looking for wines with less than 20 g/L or less than 10 g/L is even better.
