Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Wines Ranked! - 6 Lables Sommelier Alice Recommends
Non-alcoholic beverage business is booming ... we are seeing more options available in the market. As a Sommelier and an expecting mother, I tried a variety of brands over past 7 months and here, I would like to introduce my top 6 picks.
I will be honest, it was challenging to encounter with still white/red non-alc wines that I like, as those "baked" flavor nuances coming from "dealcoholization process" really bothered me. On the other hand, I found it very surprising that some non-alc sparkling wines can taste very close to real ones, as the bubbles mask the unwanted flavor and balance the bright acidity, preserving the original wines' fruity characters.
#1 Señorío de la Tautila Espumoso
Country: Spain Grape Variety: Airén Method: Dealcoholization Price: $24.99 (Amazon)
Crisp, fruity, and refreshing. Very small and elegant bubbles, reminiscent of real high quality sparkling wines!
#2 St. Regis Vin Mousseux

Soft, elegant, and a hint of sweetness. Well balanced sparkling, reminding me of a nice Crémant d'Alsace.
