What has more sugar a glass of wine or a donut?
Definitely a donut! Most red wines have little or no sugar, and while whites vary it is still lower than the sugar content in a donut.
In addition to having many more calories than a glass of wine (or a bottle of beer or a shot of whiskey), a donut also contains saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. In addition, the consumption of donuts is associated with weight gain, whereas the consumption of alcohol is not. And the moderate consumption of alcohol is also associated with better health and greater longevity than is abstaining from it.

Sugar occurs naturally in grapes and it gets transformed into 2 things: alcohol (which we want) and CO2 (which we do not want). Yeast transforms sugar into alcohol, therefore the more sugar you have in unfermented juice, the more alcohol your wine will have after fermentation (up to a certain extent). You can measure how much sugar your juice has using a hydrometer.
