But before choosing a non-alcoholic wine, many questions come to mind. What is a non-alcoholic wine?
What makes it different in terms of taste? Or you may think that a wine without alcohol is only for children, for pregnant women, or for grandparents whose doctor has forbidden them to drink alcohol. We will try to answer all these questions in the following.
How to make wine without alcohol
I'll start by explaining how to make a wine without alcohol, how to remove alcohol from the wine.
A process is used to remove the alcohol by distillation, with a two-phase vacuum system, so that no property of the wine is lost, only the alcohol is lost. In these two phases, in one of them the flavors are extracted at low temperature, and in the other the alcohol is extracted.
After this alcohol extraction, all the flavors will be reintroduced into the wine by a very delicate and complex method.
Therefore, alcohol-free wine does not lose its flavor, structure or complexity.
It's a bit hard for us to understand that such wine can be good, but we guarantee that non-alcoholic wine was a great discovery for the people who can´t drink, or don´t want to drink because they are cutting their alcohol consumption.
Below we will present the non-alcoholic wine options that you can find in our store. We recommend that you include these wines in your festive menus following the general recommendations of culinary associations.

A process that is done as in the case of other conventional wines. After this aging, when the wine reaches its optimum point, the desalination is carried out with great care, combining the evaporation method with cryogenization, a process of preserving the flavors at low temperatures to remove all the ethanol present in the wine, through a system of membranes, to preserve all the properties and aromas of the wine.
