There is an upward global trend for alcohol-free wine, with health-conscious consumers looking for alternative options such as the new alcohol-free range from Ara Wines.
Ara Select Blocks Zero is a carefully crafted wine produced at the edge of the earth (New Zealand) that includes a Sauvignon Blanc and Rosé, which is now available in Australia.
If you think alcohol-free wine won’t ever be as enjoyable as the real thing, allow Ara to change your mind. These wines are made as a full-strength, premium New Zealand wines, but the aroma and alcohol are gently removed using advanced spinning cone technology. The winemaking team then combines the delicate aroma back into the wine, resulting in a delicious no-alcohol wine with low calories (80 per cent fewer calories than a 12.5% alc/vol wine).
Ara has been making exceptional no-alcohol wines for several years – and the brand was awarded Best Wine and Best White Wine at 2022 WinePilot Zero Alcohol Wine Show in Sydney and scored big (95 points) at the 2022 International Wine and Spirits competition.
