The 23 Best Non-Alcoholic Wines

There are many reasons to explore the modern non-alcoholic drinks space. For one, these days the category is big business, which has resulted in an ever-expanding variety of products from NA wine to zero-proof spirits. There’s never been a better time to begin navigating these options, given the rise of NA bottle shops and sommeliers who are themselves going sober.

One needn’t be completely abstinent from alcohol to enjoy NA drinks, although people—especially young adults—are increasingly taking that path. Perhaps you’re simply reevaluating your relationship with alcohol, or looking for a change of drinking pace. Whatever your reasoning, the fact remains that there are a ton of products to sort through.

When it comes to NA wine, many drinkers have similar questions: What exactly are non-alcoholic wines? And how do you find the best ones? Read on for our simple guide to this expanding category, plus bottle recommendations from Wine Enthusiast professionals and fawning customer reviews.

What Are Non-Alcoholic Wines?

There are two main types of non-alcoholic wines. There are wine alternatives, which resemble wine in flavor and texture, but do not contain alcohol, and dealcoholized wines, which are traditionally-made wines with their alcohol removed.

With regard to the latter, according to the Food and Drug Administration, wines labeled “alcohol-removed” and “dealcoholized” are only used when a wine goes through a specific process to remove most or all of the alcohol present. Such a bottle might also have the terms “zero alcohol” or “alcohol-free” on its label.

How Are Non-Alcoholic Wines Made?

There are four methods approved by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms for removing alcohol from wine, reports the Institute of Food Technologists. Alcohol can be removed through thin-film evaporation (called vacuum distillation), reverse osmosis, spinning cone distillation and thermal gradient processing. But the two most common ways are vacuum distillation and reverse osmosis.

In vacuum distillation, the beverage is heated to the point where the alcohol evaporates. During the practice of reverse osmosis, wine is run “through a filter, and the filter separates the alcohol based on the size of the molecule,” Terry Donnelly, chairman and CEO of Hill Street Beverage Company Inc. told Wine Enthusiast. “Alcohol is a bigger molecule than water, so you can literally run it through like a microscopic strainer and filter the alcohol off.”

In comparison, wine alternatives are designed to mimic the flavor, texture and experience of wine by using a variety of ingredients other than wine. Some options may include tea, kombucha or other fruit juices. Some wine alternatives simply feel like a nice booze-free beverage, while others use winemaking techniques to replicate the experience of tannin, flavors and acidity of wine.

There’s no shortage of NA wines to try. If you’re wondering where to buy non-alcoholic wines, we can help you there, too. We’ve compiled  a list of top-rated bottles on Amazon, Total Wine & More and other online retailers. To make the list, each bottle (only one per brand) needed to have at least four stars or higher. Check them out below.


The Best Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Wines

Leitz – Eins Zwei Zero Sparkling Riesling

Type: Dealcoholized Wine

Alcohol Level: 0.0%

Writer-at-Large Christina Pickard, who reviews wines from Australia, New Zealand, England and New York, is a fan of this zero-proof offering from German producer Leitz.

“Bubbles can forgive a lot of average winemaking, particularly in the new ocean of underwhelming non-alcoholic products currently on the market,” she says. “In the case of this wine, however, the winemaking is there. The fizz is an added bonus.”

In a recent Instagram post, German wine expert Valerie Kathawala concurs, calling the wine a “most surprisingly satisfying simulacrum of real-deal Rieslingsekt: an elegant and super-fine perlage, just enough ‘dosage’ to read dry but convey Riesling’s characteristic fruit, a bright line of citric acidity, and a pleasing weight and body—the holy grail in non-alcs.”

FAQs

Does Non-Alcoholic Wine Have Alcohol?

Any NA wine that has undergone the fermentation process will have trace amounts of alcohol, often in the realm of .5%. This is similar to commercial kombucha.

How to Pick a Non-Alcoholic Wine

Like any other bottle of wine, choosing a non-alcoholic bottle is based on your personal preferences. Read online reviews or ask for personal recommendations to know if a particular bottle will meet your tastes.

How Do You Store Non-Alcoholic Wine?

Much like with regular wine, you’ll want to store your unopened non-alcoholic bottles in a cool, dry place. The refrigerator for both reds and whites, of course, works fine. But don’t leave these bottles lying around for too long. They are meant to be consumed young, so you’ll want to pop the cork within a couple months of purchasing them.

How Long Does Non-Alcoholic Wine Last After Opening?

Once non-alcoholic wines have been opened, you’ll want to consume them within 24 to 48 hours as they will quickly lose their fresh and fruity qualities once exposed to air. For non-alcoholic sparklers, drink within 24 hours of opening as they go flat quickly after the carbon dioxide has been released.  

How We Chose These Non-Alcoholic Wines

We wanted to ensure that there was a bottle on this list for every kind of drinker. Here you’ll find non-alcoholic wines for those who love heavy reds, crisp bubbles and everyone in between. First, we queried our team of editors and writers at large. In addition, we sifted through customer reviews and only chose options that maintained a four-star rating or higher with at least 15 customer reviews.
