I'd say you have to test it and see...my neighbour across the road who is diabetic swears by her dry white wine...never spikes her...I had a glass of the same wine and I didnt spike either...but I'd say it depends on the person...and um how much you drink

Many red wines are only between 1 and 3 carbs for each liter wine.
A dry white wine is also guite ok for me, but Riesling is usually too much carbs for me.

where have you found the carb count? I knew that reisling I drank had to be to good to be true lol But I sure drank it down. ;)
In Norway there has to be a label with how much carbo there is in the wine, and if it is missing we ask the salesmen at Vinmonopolet, the only place we can buy wine legally.
The norwegian diabetes society sent me a list with some of the wines a while ago.
I also think if you google the brand you are interested in, you can find information about carbs.
Jacobs Creek is one of the red wines with little carbo.

I only drink the dark reds like Merlot, Cabernet or Malbec. I have never had problems with bg spiking. Usually the alcohol takes care of any spiking.

I like red wine if I mix it with some diet ginger ale, can't drink it other wise. Jim Beam Ginger ale, splash of lime juice for me.
