Everything You Need to Know About Alcohol-Free Wine

Whether you're trying to cut back on alcohol, are pregnant, or just have a sensitivity to it, there's no reason you need to miss out on delicious wine. If you've ever had an alcohol-free beverage before, including non-alcoholic beer and wine, chances are it was made with some sort of chemical that replicates the taste of alcohol. However, nowadays there are amazing new ways to remove booze from your favourite drinks like beer and wine using vacuum distillation—and without chemicals—so you can get all the flavour without any hangover.

If you go by the definition, alcohol-free wine is made just as regular wine is.

If you go by the definition, alcohol-free wine is made just as regular wine is. It's possible to make wine without alcohol—it just takes time and effort.

While it might seem like a decision to drink non-alcoholic wine would be easy, it isn't always. Alcohol-free wines are often made with grapes that were harvested while still green, which can result in an unpleasant taste of green apple or grassy notes (like when biting into a leaf). This is not true of all alcohol-free wines, especially modern premium dealcoholized wines.

There are five ways to de-alcoholize wine.

To de-alcoholize wine, you can use five different methods:

  • Distillation

  • Heat treatment

  • The process of freeze distillation

  • Nondestructive filtration techniques (such as reverse osmosis) and centrifugal techniques.

The vacuum distillation process is a new and our favoured method for removing the alcohol from wine.

The vacuum distillation process is a new method for removing the alcohol from wine. It’s not as old as other methods, but it works well on some types of wine and can be very effective at removing most of the alcohol while preserving all the flavour. This is the process we use for Zero Lush Premium NA wines! 

The vacuum distillation process may sound complicated, but it’s actually relatively simple: A machine separates out the alcohol-free wine by using heat to boil off water and CO2 until only ethanol remains — think of it like boiling away water in a pot on your stovetop until only white wine remains. The ethanol goes into another chamber where it becomes gaseous again before being collected in a final chamber by an absorbent material like glass wool or cotton balls (this is so there are no chemicals left behind).

There are so many reasons to enjoy alcohol-free wine. If you’re trying to cut back on how much alcohol you drink, or if you simply want to enjoy a glass of wine without getting drunk, then alcohol-free wine is a great option. It’s also perfect for anyone who has a history of addiction and wants to avoid the temptation altogether.

  • Alcohol is a depressant that affects how your body processes other drugs—including some prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs.*

  • It can interfere with the effectiveness of certain medications by changing how quickly or slowly they work in your body.*

Non-alcoholic beer and wine are great options to still enjoy a drink while having fun at home or out with friends and family.

If you're looking for a way to enjoy the taste of wine and beer, but don't want any alcohol at all, there are several options. These types of drinks are great for those who want to still have fun with friends and family without getting drunk. The best part about these beverages is that they taste just as good as regular wine or beer!

Non-alcoholic wine can be found in many flavours, including red, white and rosé. It's also sold in different brands that offer different prices so finding one at the right cost shouldn't be too difficult. The same goes for non-alcoholic beers—they come in a variety of flavours such as light lager or stout ale which makes them perfect for any taste preference!

Enjoying an alcohol-free beverage can be a great choice for so many reasons!

Alcohol is a big part of many people's lives. It's often used as a way to relax and unwind after a long day at work, or to celebrate special occasions with friends and family. But not everyone drinks alcohol, and there are plenty of reasons why someone might choose to avoid it.

If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, it's important that you avoid drinking alcohol altogether because there isn't enough research on what effects it has on your baby. If you're planning on driving soon after having a drink, it could be dangerous for yourself and others on the road if you're under the influence (even if only slightly). Being over the legal limit for driving means that police can arrest you for drunk driving even if they don't actually see you driving erratically—so no matter how much time has passed since your last drink, don't risk getting behind the wheel!

Some diet plans also recommend avoiding certain foods high in calories—including alcoholic beverages made from grains such as whiskey or beer—because they contain lots of empty calories that provide little nutritional value.


We hope you enjoyed learning about alcohol-free wine. If you’re looking for something new to try, remember that there are so many reasons why it can be a great choice! From not wanting to drink alcohol because of an allergy, sensitivity or other medical issue; being pregnant or nursing; avoiding alcohol altogether due to religious beliefs; having an upcoming important event where drinking isn’t allowed (such as driving); or just not enjoying the taste of alcohol anymore—there are plenty of reasons why you may want an alternative beverage option.

Whether you’re looking for something fun after dinner tonight or want something cool but refreshing on a hot summer day off at home with family or friends (and kids!)—these drinks will hit the spot!
