Shrimp Scampi

OK, I saw a recipe on here from Atkins for low carb shrimp scampi.
My question about it is when did wine become low carb?

Can't say for sure on this as each wine is different. Most dry wines are "dry" because all or most of the sugar has been converted into alcohol by the fermentation process. This means that the wine has very very little carbohydrate content as almost all of its calorie content is alcohol content (which is 7 calories per gram). This would hold for a dry white or a dry red like a merlot or cab. Sweet wines like the cheap stuff in boxes...usually have sugar added back in after fermentation to give them that sweet taste and these would obviously have a very high carbohydrate content.
