White wine is just as beneficial to your health and nutrition. As well as containing aspects of resveratrol, white wine also features antioxidants, flavonoids and polyphenols, all of which serve different purposes as it pertains to improving your general health. In addition, while wine by its very nature is classified as an alcoholic beverage, both red and white wine is surprisingly low on alcohol traces, with white wine being slightly smaller than its red counterpart. Indeed, white wine has anywhere from 12.5-15% alcohol, but this figure drops for champagne and, for dry white wines made from Reisling, the alcohol level can be as low as 8-9%.
