Wine’s Alcoholic Content Going Up Annually

A study by a Californian University has found that wine bottles tend to contain more alcohol than is listed on its labels.

The study was based on Chilean and Spanish red wines but Chilean and American white wines were also found to contain discrepancies.

The study found that on average there was a discrepancy of 0.42 per cent between what was stated on the label and the actual wine’s alcohol content. Although it may seem like a small amount, it is enough to significantly mislead consumers and allow them to underestimate the amount of alcohol they drink.
