My favorite is Ernst & Julio Gallo White Zinfandel (California), it's a sweet pink wine. No, it's not good to drink alcohol for weight loss, but I try to keep myself at 1-4oz glass every other day or so. Now, because I'm doing Weight Watchers, it's worth 2 pts - I make sure that I work out that day prior to have a glass of wine so that they negate each other (calories burned/calories consumed).
There's nothing wrong with loving wine - the key is moderation! Good Luck!
p.s. If you are with friends and feel like you are going to be having more than 1 glass - mix 1/2 + 1/2 with a clear diet soda (ie. 7-up,sprite,gingerale). That way you'll get 2 drinks for the same calories as 1 ... & it won't be so bad - calorie speaking - if you have let's say ... 4 glasses of 1/2+1/2
