Chateau Thomas Offers Slender, a Sugar Free Wine

Welcome!  You can also view our more recent post where we try a large number of wines – including Slender – at the Chateau Thomas tasting room in Nashville, Indiana.

I have to admit I'm curious about this.

Chateau Thomas is right up the road, really, with a tasting room in Nashville, IN (outside of Columbus, IN) and the winery in Plainfield, IN, close to the Indianapolis Airport. I've visited the Nashville tasting room, but it's been a few years. I remember preferring their wines to another tasting room I visited in Nashville, but that's as specific as I can get.


I can say that my experiences with Indiana wines are as hit and miss as my experiences with Kentucky wines. Some are great; some are (insert fruit of your choice here) fruit juice. So my curiosity is piqued with the announcement of Slender, a new sugar-free wine from Chateau Thomas.

Slender comes in White, Blush, and Red and claims to have no sugar, no carbs, no fats, and no aftertaste. All three are blends and contain Splenda.  If anything, this wine offers a great alternative for people like my mother, who suffer from Type I/juvenile diabetes.

Slender retails for $9.99 and is available at the winery, tasting room, and at several Indiana Crown Liquor stores.

Update: In the comments, Dr. Thomas notes that they have discontinued the wine with Splenda. They now carry "the new Slender wine
which contains Erythritol, a no-calorie, zero glycemic, natural
sweetener which tastes just like dextrose and has no aftertaste.
Erythritol is the same sweetener used in Orbit gum." You can learn more on their web site. This new blend would also work nicely for my mom.

    Alcohol affects insulin metabolism – and not in a positive way. This is a classic case of marketing misdirection. It worries me that diabetics believe this.

    1) Michelle states the Slender wine contains Splenda which is incorrect. We have discontinued this wine and are selling the new Slender wine which contains Erythritol, a no-calorie, zero glycemic, natural sweetener which tastes just like dextrose and has no aftertaste. Erythritol is the same sweetener used in Orbit gum. Complete info available on http://www.slenderwine.com Could you please correct your website??
    thanks, Dr. Thomas, winemaker
    2) Linda is completely off-base. Alcohol doesn’t affect insulin metabolism except that diabetics who comsume alcohol will experience a reduction in insulin needs because alcohol is not metabolized in the Carbohydrate, or Kreb Cycle which uses insulin. Please reeducate yourself, Linda, from real scientific sources.

    Are you marketing the Slender Wine in Northwest Indiana? The blush is great. would like to try a few more flavors, types. NO after taste, light and smooth.

    Slender wine is probably going to be the next big thing. Lets just hope the hype catches up to everybody! As a diabetic, i will now be able to enjoy a glass of wine without having to worry about my levels.

  5. Vicki says:

    Can someone give the the caloric count on this wine?

  6. Linda Pressley says:

    Can Slender red be purchased anywhere in Fort Wayne, IN? I have just been introduced to the sweetener erythritol in the SoBe Life waters and it is fabulous!!! If I didn’t know better, I would think it was sugar.

  7. Linda:
    I’m just a wine blogger and not affiliated with the winery, so I don’t know where – outside of the winery – you can purchase Slender. I recommend checking with the winery themselves. Their web site is http://chateauthomas.com/.
    Cheers, and thanks for reading!
