Whether I’m hosting dinner parties, sitting poolside, or enjoying a few glasses with friends, wine is one of my favorite ways to enjoy the moment. When trying to live healthier, the after-effects of alcohol may not always be in the cards, which is why non-alcoholic wines are more popular than ever. Current wine drinkers are actively seeking quality options in the 0% category. 66% of millennials report that they are actively working to lower their alcohol intake and 56% consider themselves “mindful drinkers.”
If you’re taking time off from drinking, stopping completely, or simply trying to drink less, non-alcoholic wines are a great mindful option to crack open for any occasion — be it a dinner party or simply unwinding at home. They’re low-calorie and still preserve everything you love about wine — without the effects of alcohol. So, when I found out about Giesen's non-alcoholic wines, I couldn't keep it a secret!
Sourced from beautiful New Zealand vineyards, Giesen 0% is the world's leading Premium Range of non-alcoholic wines, including white, red and rosé styles. But don't mistake it for grape juice! Giesen 0% wines are grown and made with the same process as their full-strength Estate wines, so you don't need to sacrifice quality and taste for your healthy lifestyle. The only difference is that Giesen 0% has the alcohol gently removed after fermentation using innovative, spinning cone technology that preserves the aromas and flavors we love in wine.
With less than 0.5% alcohol per volume, no added sugars, and only 19-27 calories per 5 oz serving, there's something for anyone seeking better-for-you options. Plus, they’re a healthy and mindful alternative to soda — and pair far better with your favorite meals. So let's check out what we have today!
First, see what everyone is raving about and try the nation's #1 selling 0% Sauvignon Blanc. It features delicate orange aromas of fresh lime, redcurrant, and lemon shortbread, followed by distinct blackcurrant and passionfruit notes. One taste of this is heaven.
Fans of Pinot Grigio, you'll love this next option. Giesen 0% Pinot Grigio features delicate floral notes with white flowers, lychee, and red apple on the nose. Its taste is light, delicious, and balanced between crispness and sweetness, offering everything you love in one glass.
Giesen 0% Rosé is another fan favorite. This light-bodied go-to boasts delicious stone fruit aromas of white peach, apple, and fresh strawberries. Those apple and stone fruit notes linger on the palate alongside crisp cranberry flavors and a lively, refreshingly dry texture.
And we didn't forget about you Red lovers! Expect delicate aromas of crushed blackberry and wild herbs in Giesen 0% Premium Red. Crushed red berries and plum offset by toasted oak on the palate deliciously combine to give a light and refreshing option for any occasion.
Lastly, for those occasions where you want full-strength wine, reach for a bottle of Giesen Estate Sauvignon Blanc. Family owned and crafted in New Zealand's Marlborough wine region for over 40 years, this premium varietal is crisp and refreshing with generous flavors of vibrant tropical fruit and citrus, and subtle notes of freshly cut herbs.
