I would stick to real, non diet wines for the full benefits. Red has more antioxidants than white as well. It's really hard to define 'good' wine because everyone has such different tastes. I would just experiment, buy a couple reasonably priced ones and see what you like best. Once you know the qualities/varietals/regions you seem to prefer shopping for wine becomes easier.

I've never had skinny girl wine, but I have tried other low calorie red wines, and they all tasted like vinegar. Bleh. I'll stick to the regular higher calorie wine.

so what is a good brand of red wine that won't bust your wallet?

No, I have not tried and after a majority of these negative comments probably will not. Thank you for the heads up!

I have never tried SkinnyGirl, but I like any brand of pinot noir which is only 115 calories for the same serving size, so if others are saying its not very good I would just go with a regular wine. Dry red wines are what you need for the health benefits, so that is cabernet, pinot noir, shiraz, and merlot.

I've only had the Skinny Girl Margarita - which I think is pretty decent. I haven't tried the other stuff though.

Good to know. Sounds like we'd be better off just sticking with a smaller serving of good wine. Why waste the calories (even if they are less) for something that doesn't taste good.

It's not very good. I think it's overpriced and not a good way to save 20 calories on a glass of wine. If I'm trying to save calories, I cut red wine with some club soda or diet sprite.

When I drink, I do choose wine. But I don't like Skinny Girl at all. When you have had some of the best of the best, (my dad is a wine connoiseur) the lower calorie stuff just doesn't hold a candle to the good stuff. I have no problem spending $15 or more on a good bottle of wine.

Yes, so not worth it. Just stick with regular. When I worry about calories I just work out more :)

No, I hate the taste of any alcohol. Never could stand the taste although I tried, LOL.

It's not very good. I'd recommend sticking to regular wine.

I have not tried her wine but I have tried some of her other products and have not been pleased.

Yes. Generally on the white / pink side, and so a bit sweet. I'd say over-priced for what you're getting, but the SO likes it well enough and used to buy a couple of them.

I never heard of Skinny Girl Wine.

I haven't tried hers but they said it's a success and it's only 100 calories.... What is a good wine (they say you should have red wine just a little everyday) so what is a good kind?

I haven't tried her wine, but I've tried her other products (sangria, margarita, cosmo) and I was pretty disappointed with all of them. If you decide to get a different brand, just stay away from the sweeter reds.

Oh, I'd like that info too. I didn't know that there was a skinny girl wine.

I'm thinking of drinking a little bit of wine everyday as I'm hearing more and more that red wine is good for you and that the skinny girl is only 100 calories, just wondering how it is...
Also what is good Cabarnet? or Merlot?
