STATEMENT on the European Commission report on the labelling of alcoholic beverages

Wine & Calories

Brussels, 15 March 2017. Following the publication of the European Commission report on the labelling of alcoholic beverages, Wine in Moderation would like to highlight the fact that information on wine and diet has been available since Spring 2016 on the www.wineinmoderation.com website.


It is important to put this information into context because it is not just about calories” says George Sandeman, President of the WiM Association, “It is mainly about a good and balanced diet, with regular exercise, but most of all it is about helping consumers make responsible choices compatible with an overall healthy lifestyle”.


Wine in Moderation updated its central website with a section featuring relevant, science based information on wine and balanced diet. The website section in question provides information on calories, drinking units and sugar in wine. The information is available in ten languages* and is continuously updated.


Further information on the Wine and Diet page can be found: https://www.wineinmoderation.eu/en/content/Wine-Diet.82/


*The webpages are available in: English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Dutch, Swedish, Greek, and Russian.
