If you’re a fan of wine, but want to avoid the alcohol, there are plenty of non-alcoholic options out there. These wines taste and smell just like their full-alcohol counterparts, so you can enjoy a refreshing drink without feeling hungover afterwards.
They also come in a range of styles, from rosé to sparkling white. And if you’re into red wine, there’s a wide variety of choices as well.
Wolf Blass Zero Sauvignon Blanc
Alcohol-free wine is the perfect way to enjoy a glass of something delicious without any of the side effects that come with drinking alcoholic beverages. This is especially true for those who are pregnant, or who simply prefer to avoid booze for any number of reasons.
Wolf Blass Zero Sauvignon Blanc is a non-alcoholic wine that is both low in calories and low in sugar, making it a healthy alternative to traditional alcoholic wines. It contains just 17 calories and 1.5 grams of sugar per 100ml, which makes it a great option for those looking to reduce their calorie intake.
The wine is produced in South Australia and is gently dealcoholised, meaning that it contains no alcohol. This is made possible through a special process called Spinning Cone Technology which means that the alcohol is removed from the wine during production.
This particular wine has a pale straw colour and smells of cut grass, tropical fruit and lemon. On the palate, it is crisp and refreshing with a well balanced dry profile.
This is a great choice for those who are looking for an alcohol-free wine that is both healthy and tasty, and it is a great addition to any bar or dinner table. It is also very affordable and is available at many retailers. Including Craft Zero and Woolworths Grocery.
Edenvale Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc
If you are looking to cut down on your alcohol intake but still want to enjoy a glass of wine, non-alcoholic or zero-alcohol wine is the way to go. There are more than 130 varieties of these drinks available in Australia, so you will be able to find one that suits your taste and your health goals.
Edenvale Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect choice for those who want a light and refreshing wine without any of the added alcohol. Its fresh and fruity flavours make it a great match for a wide range of foods, including rice dishes, pasta, warm salads, spicy food and fresh cheeses.
It has a pale straw colour with an intense nose of tropical fruits, grapefruit and citrus. The palate is fresh and balanced with more fruity aromas, good acidity and a touch of spice on the finish.
The Expedition Series from Edenvale is an exciting new range of wines that are all non-alcoholic. The concept behind the series is to explore unique varieties and hidden gems from around the world.
Each of the Expedition Series wines are produced in Spain with a blend of premium Spanish grapes, creating a range that is full of flavour and character. They are available in a red, white and sparkling cuvee.
This non-alcoholic wine is a blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, which are both Spanish varietals that have a reputation for retaining their character after dealcoholization. It is a light to medium bodied wine with a smooth finish and a delicious flavour.
The non-alcoholic Sauvignon Blanc and Verdejo blend is the perfect addition to your next party or get-together. It is light to medium bodied with an aromatic profile of tropical fruits, grapefruit and fennel. It is crisp and fresh on the palate with a smooth dry finish.
The range also includes a sparkling cuvee that has been blended with the macabeo, which is a little-known grape found in Spanish sparkling cava. This combination creates a very unique drink that is a real standout in the non-alcoholic sparkling wine market.
McGuigan Zero Shiraz
McGuigan Zero Shiraz is a non-alcoholic wine with subtle spice and vanilla notes complemented by plum and forest berry aromas. It has a good length of flavour with sweet blackcurrants and a balanced finish. It’s an excellent choice for Dry July or any time you want to enjoy a light, tasty drink without the alcohol.
This alcohol free red wine is made with grape-derived juices, so it’s completely natural and contains no artificial sweeteners or additives. It’s also gluten-free, making it a great option for vegans and those who follow a gluten-free diet.
It tastes just like a normal Shiraz with the same fruity and spicey aromas that you’d expect from a big Australian red. The colour is dark cherry and the nose is a lot more wine-like than some of the other non-alcoholic reds I’ve tried.
As with all non-alcoholic wines, this is a very versatile drink that works well with a range of dishes including Moroccan tagines and roast duck. It can also be served with ice, making it ideal for picnics and parties.
Using the latest spinning cone technology, the winemakers of McGuigan Zero gently remove alcohol after fermentation, keeping the delicate fruit flavours. This ensures that each bottle is full-flavoured and perfect for those looking to reduce their alcohol intake or just want a light, healthy alternative.
This shiraz is available from leading supermarkets and specialist retailers nationwide, as well as online. It’s also suitable for those who are pregnant or have any other reason for wanting to avoid alcohol.

Plus and Minus Pinot Noir
Plus and Minus Pinot Noir is one of the original non-alcoholic Australian wines that have been crafted to offer those who wish to drink alcohol but not booze, a wine they can enjoy with their friends and family without having to compromise on quality or taste. Crafted from premium dry-grown grapes in South Australia, these non-alcoholic wines are rich in antioxidants, and contain no artificial sweeteners, but do see the addition of grape skin extract (GSE) during the winemaking process to add body and flavour.
This light style red wine has soft aromas of dark berries and dried herbs with a delicious flavour profile featuring cherry and dark chocolate. It is also vegan friendly and contains the added antioxidant benefits of grape seed extract, making it perfect for temporary alcohol-free challenges like Fast Feb or Dry July as well as keto diets!
The range is made by Fourth Wave Wines, an Australian company that makes and distributes a number of alcoholic and non-alcoholic wines worldwide. “With many people choosing to adopt a healthier lifestyle, alcohol-free drinks are becoming an increasingly popular option,” said Ross Marshall, general manager of Fourth Wave Wines.
“We’ve got an excellent range of alcohol-free wine on shelf right now, with a variety of styles and tastes to suit your every mood. From Blanc de Blancs, to Pinot Grigio, to Pinot Noir, Rose and even Prosecco; we have something for everyone.”
Having been hand-crafted in South Australia using only high-quality grapes from premium dry-grown vineyards, this range of wine remains vibrant and full-flavoured once the alcohol has been removed. This is done using a combination of traditional winemaking techniques and the added ”plus” in the Plus and Minus range, which refers to grape skin extract (GSE) that has been added during the winemaking process for more of those naturally occurring antioxidants.
A classic expression of Pinot Noir, this wine shows juicy red fruits and a characteristic savoury edge on the nose with typical Pinot Noir characters of dried herb and spice and a touch of natural fruit sweetness on the palate. It pairs beautifully with mushroom risotto and is an ideal choice for a casual evening.
