B&G Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Wine

Few drinks can compare to the sensation of sipping a glass of lusciously layered sparkling wine. To begin, the extravagance and depth of flavor sparkling wine are pretty exceptional. In addition, consuming these tannin-rich beverages is associated with better gut, heart, and brain health. Even if you've decided to tread the sober path, you may still enjoy this fine drink's richness and health benefits. The solution comes in a bottle of non-alcoholic sparkling wine. Get ready to pop the cork in celebration without sacrificing quality or suffering the consequences the next day.

The Alcohol Level in Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Wine

As more people look for a way to enjoy wine without experiencing the aftereffects, non-alcoholic sparkling wines have become increasingly popular. It's vital to understand, though, that although common beliefs hold that alcohol is wholly removed from alcohol-free sparkling wines during de-alcoholization, the process actually leaves behind very minute, barely detectable amounts of alcohol (generally between 0% and 0.5% alcohol). This is one of the reasons why we'd never recommend consuming white wine without alcohol to pregnant women or those under the legal age of drinking.

Scenarios Where Alcohol-Free Sparkling Wine Is Just the Perfect Solution

You're the Group's Driver for The Night

Being the designated driver might dampen your excitement when planning a night out with pals. Of course, no rule says you have to limit yourself to sodas all night long. In fact, by staying sober, you're doing yourself, your friends, and everyone else around a huge favor that deserves to be celebrated. An excellent choice in these circumstances is non-alcoholic sparkling wine.

You're a Sports Person

Athletes generally have a greater appreciation for the value of a healthy diet than anyone else. As more research links alcohol consumption to poor muscle recovery, sportspersons have been searching for healthier alternatives. And now we have it! Make alcohol-free sparkling wine your go-to drink if you want to enjoy the exquisite notes and invigorating aromas of fine wine after a victory with your team and still be in top form for the next day's training session.

You've Got the Early Shift in The Morning

Though unwinding with a glass of wine at the end of the day may feel good at the moment, the next morning is often less pleasant. If you're planning on staying out late but still need to get some work done in the morning, alcohol-free sparkling wine is your best bet. As a result, you won't have to worry about waking up with feelings of nausea or a headache. Instead, you'll get an early start on the day, rejuvenate and be ready to take on the world.

How Is A Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Wine Made?

Winemaking for non-alcoholic varieties is quite similar to standard winemaking; both involve fermentation, but non-alcoholic wines undergo an additional de-alcoholization procedure that drastically lowers the alcohol content to 0% and 0.5%. Following harvest, winemakers use time-honored techniques to produce bottles full of flavor, smooth on the palate, and expertly balanced. The most often used methods to remove the alcohol from wine are:

Vacuum Distillation

Evaporation of the alcoholic component is made possible by this approach. The wine is typically heated in a vacuum chamber at lower temperatures so that the aroma of the bouquet and the original flavors can be maintained.

Reverse Osmosis

This technique makes use of a filtration system that is extremely sensitive and only permits water and alcohol to get through.

Distillation at its most fundamental level is used in the second stage, which involves separating the alcohol from the water. Following this step, the water is reintroduced to the wine concentrate, which had previously undergone filtration. In order to remove the alcohol considerably, the procedure calls for filtering the wine a further two to four times.

Non-Alcoholic Wine: White vs. Red?

Wines are classified as either red or white based on the type of grapes used in their production; red wines use grapes like Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, while white wines use grapes like Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio.

Red and white wines undergo distinct transformations during winemaking, resulting in notably unique aromas, flavors, and textures. One of the most significant distinctions is that grape skins and seeds are not included in the fermentation process for white wines, but they are for reds. Non-alcoholic white wines are prized for their zippy acidity, flowery aromas, and clean fruit notes, while red wines are admired for their smooth, rich, velvety texture.
