This is because alcoholic beverages are regulated by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), rather than the FDA. The TTB does not require nutrition labeling.
So how does one figure out the nutrition in a drink such as Red Wine?
A simple internet search of course!
It is also helpful to know that the basic ingredients in red wine are grapes, sugar, and yeast. The potassium in wine may come from the soil where the grapes are harvested from.
