Hey, have you heard about the ketogenic diet? It’s the high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carb eating plan that keeps bacon, cheese and dessert on the menu. Oh, and wine (in moderation, of course). Yep, it’s basically the diet of our dreams. Here, five wines that are keto diet-approved.

Margerum Sauvignon Blanc keto friendly wine bottle1
Margerum Wines

Sauvignon Blanc

Dry wines are the lowest in carbohydrates, and this refreshing white is one of the driest and crispest around (and with only 3 grams of carbs per serving to boot). Classic Sauv Blancs will have notes of apple, melon and grass, which makes them perfect companions to delicate fish dishes and green veggies topped with fresh herbs. 

Try: Margerum 2015 D Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Barbara, California, $35

Geyser Peak Merlot wine bottle
Geyser Peak


Looking for something to pair with that grass-fed steak dinner? An elegant Merlot with its notes of red fruit and medium body is the perfect choice…and has just 3.7 grams of carbs per serving. Impress dining companions by ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the wine’s soft-as-silk tannins (while inwardly feeling smug about sticking to your diet).

Try: Geyser Peak 2014 Merlot, Sonoma County, California, $13

Perrier Joue t Grand Brut Champagne


Socializing and dieting don’t usually go together, but sparkling whites (like Champagne, Cava and Prosecco) are exceptionally low-carb—just 2 grams per serving. So you can stay out late and sip some bubbly with your friends, all while staying 100 percent keto.

Try: Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Champagne, $50

Bonterra Pinot Noir wine bottle

Pinot Noir

Not sure whether to serve red or white? Try a Pinot Noir—its lightness will complement fish and salads, yet it’s complex enough to stand up to richer ingredients like mushrooms and duck. Tasting notes of berries, roses and vanilla make this one a winner—for you and your diet (3.4 grams of carbs per serving).

Try: Bonterra 2012 Pinot Noir, Mendocino County, California, $19

Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio white keto wine
Ecco Domani

Pinot Grigio

This zesty white has just 3 grams of carbs per five-ounce glass, and we love its bright acidity and flavors of lemon-lime, stone fruit, green apple and honeysuckle. It pairs well with creamy sauces (which is totally allowed on the diet, by the way), seafood and a hot summer’s day.

Try: Ecco Domani 2015 Pinot Grigio, Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy, $9
