What is non alcoholic wine?
According to the FSANZ food standards code, non alcoholic wine, also known as zero alcohol wine, can refer to the range of wines that don’t contain any quantifiable alcohol. While people might expect the term “non alcoholic wine” to refer only to beverages produced without fermentation and with 0% alcohol, it can also be used to describe wine that has been de-alcoholised. Unlike Maggie Beer sparkling wine, these alcohol-removed wines often contain a residual 0.5% alcohol by volume. While this is quite low and generally safe for all ages, it is not a true 0% alcohol wine.
The range of Maggie Beer non-alcoholic wine contains 0% alcohol. It is made from the juice of unripe grapes and is not fermented. This means you can enjoy the wonderful effervescence of champagne with the refreshing sweetness of a fruity white wine or rosé with zero alcohol.
The benefits of alcohol free wine
Some people prefer non alcoholic wine for lifestyle or religious reasons, but there are so many occasions when a bottle of non alcoholic wine just makes sense. From going alcohol-free in July, a baby on the way, or drinks for the designated driver, non-alcoholic wine cocktails and drinks ensure they don’t miss out. For a friend wanting to cut down on their alcohol intake, the Maggie Beer non-alcoholic wine options makes it easy to swap their usual glass of bubbles for a non-alcoholic version. Non alcoholic wine also means you can take a recovery day following a big night and still enjoy a drink with friends. The range of Maggie Beer alcohol-free wine is ideal for a summer picnic, backyard BBQ, or family celebration.
The best non-alcoholic wine to try
Non-alcoholic wine is the perfect drink to suit those times when you want to enjoy a drink with pleasure but would prefer to avoid the alcohol effect. If you’re going alcohol-free in July, bring a bottle of wine along to a party that will convince your friends that non alcoholic wine is the way to go. With both red and white alcohol-free options in Maggie’s range, you won’t have to sacrifice flavour in order to go alcohol free. For those who usually enjoy a Moscato or similar sweet white wine, a chilled sparkling Chardonnay is divine. For a dry wine option, a mocktail with Ruby Cabernet and soda water is the best zero alcohol drink to try.
