Trendy Monday: Wine Label Info

A little over a week ago, Natalie MacLean posed an interesting question: do you know what's in your wine?

Aside from the obvious - grapes, of course - I don't have much of an answer. Some preservatives, I'd guess. But as for nutrients, calories, chemicals...I could be drinking battery acid, and I'd never know (except, I hope, my palate is advanced enough to notice something terrible).

Nat's post focuses on the discussion around whether wine should be labelled with nutrition and ingredient information, just like other foods and drinks. It's a good question. Though as I mention in the comments, I'm not 100% sure I really want to know how many calories I'm drinking...
