Weight Watchers has always been a "have your cake (or, in Oprah's case, bread) and eat it too" kind of brand and program. It's emphasising that lifestyle and ideology now more than ever with Weight Watchers-approved, weight-loss-friendly Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc. And they're only three SmartPoints per glass!
The label is called Cense — it's a wellness-focused winemaker that creates lower-calorie wines with slightly less alcohol than your average bottle (for reference, the Rosé has 9.0 percent ABV, and the Sauv Blanc has 9.6 percent ABV). And while most five-ounce servings of wine are around four SmartPoints and 100 to 120 calories, these are both only three SmartPoints each per serving.
And at only $15 per bottle, they're pretty darn affordable, too. So how do they taste? Like a lighter version of your favourite summery wines. Our favourite was the Rosé, but we'll let you read the reviews for yourself.
Cense 2017 Rosé, California
- Tastes good but very grape-juicy to me!
- Rosé water! In a very, very good way. I hate sharp alcohol taste and this doesn't have that.
- Love this! Light and refreshing, and no weird aftertaste!
- Light and refreshing, but doesn't have nearly enough alcohol for my liking.
- Like that this is nice and light; taste is good but alcohol percent is kinda low (I'm not an alcoholic but, like, still something to think about).
- Tastes like a light Rosé. Very easy to drink!
Cense 2017 Sauvignon Blanc; Marlborough, New Zealand
- Tart grape juice! Like wine for teens.
- I wouldn't know there's alcohol in this if you didn't tell me.
- A little too grapefruit forward, but I'm going to finish it anyway.
- It tastes exactly like a Sauvi B to me!
- Tastes too much like juice. Way too sweet.
