Hi Anon!

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHER with your question!

There have been some studies to show that a glass of red wine can actually be beneficial for Type 2 diabetics but you need to stay away from sweet wines like Rieslings etc. A dry white would be better if you prefer white.

Make sure your blood sugar is stable before consumption.
