Toast to love with ThinK Wine’s Vegan & Organic Prosecco and Sparkling Rosé are wines with credentials. Less calories and sugar*, with no additives, and zero compromise on taste and ABV.
A typical 100ml glass of Prosecco^ contains around 1.5g of sugar and 90kcals whilst a 100ml glass of ThinK’s bubbles have just 0.7g of sugar (one sixth of a teaspoon), 62kcal per glass and 0g carbs. That’s almost 30 fewer calories and almost one less gram of sugar per serving… makes you ThinK doesn’t it!
Made with less sugar and sulphites than other wines, these elegant drinks deliver a cleaner and fresher taste, and are proving particularly popular with those following a keto and diabetic friendly diet. The low-calorie bubbly is the perfect drink for sharing with friends over nibbles or for anyone watching their weight this new year who doesn’t want to make a compromise on taste or enjoyment. Reducing the calories certainly needn’t require compromising on taste nor alcohol content.
