About FitVine Wine
FitVine is a new company that is jumping on the trend of “healthifying” common foods to fit the needs of dieters and those pursuing clean living. New products these days have changed the way we eat and think about our comfort foods.  You can now find a Paleo version of almost any meal, everything from pies to pizza crusts!
 
When you dive head first into healthy eating, especially more restrictive diets like Keto one of the biggest challenges becomes giving up the things you love.  For many people that happens to be Wine.
 
FitVine was founded specifically for this reason when a group of friends decided to craft a wine that fit into their active and eco-conscious lifestyles.

Is there Such a thing as Healthy Wine?

The tricky thing about choosing wine is that there are no ingredient labels on the bottle and many companies are simply estimating their nutritional info.  Add to that the many additives that find their way into the process and you’re left with an even more muddled picture.
 
However there are ways to mitigate these factors and choose a better wine.
  • Look for organic and biodynamically farmed grapes.  This limits your exposure to harmful pesticides and herbicides and provides are a more nutritious grape.
  • Explore Dry Farmed Wines -  this method of farming limits the water access of the grapevine; while producing lower yields it forces the roots to dig way deeper into the soil accessing richer nutrients and minerals.
  • Additive free wines - Many large commercial operations add a variety of questionable ingredients to give their wines a certain look and taste.  This includes everything from added sugars to sulfites.
  •  
    This is a good starting point for finding healthier wines, you can also look for lab tested wines for further peace of mind.

    For a glass of some of their white vines this results in 90 calories and 3g of carbs.  For the reds it is around 95 calories and 3.4g of carbs.
     
    One of the other aspects of creating a healthier wine is to limit the amount of sulfites which they accomplish through a proprietary process that results in less than 35 ppm.
