alcohol-free wine

Vino alcol 0
Vino a gradazione 0

And here we are in a new adventure: alcohol-free wine, also known as dealcoholic or dealcolated wine or non-alcoholic wine! Yes, you read that right: we are going to bottle a wine, produced by the alcoholic fermentation of our grapes, after having dealcoholized it. A wine without alcohol, at 0 degrees!

Have you to drive? Are you pregnant? Does wine have too many calories? Alcohol-free wine is the answer!

Alcohol-free wines in Italy

In Italy, a product to be called wine must have a gradation of at least 9 degrees (each denomination, then, refers to the specific specification), with some exceptions related to particular denominations. Precisely for this reason the label will show the wording “non-alcoholic drink made from grape must vinified and subsequently dealcoholised” or dealcoholic wine. Italian law prohibits the use of adjectives or nouns before or after the word wine, such as “alcohol-free”, “dealcoholic” or “dealcolated”. The rest of the world calls it “alcohol-free wine” (Vino delacolato in Italian, Vin Sans Alcool in French, Sin Alcool Wine in Spanish, Alkoholfreier Wein in German).

How dealcoholization is done

Dealcoholization is a process by which alcohol can be extracted from alcoholic beverages, including wine. It can be practiced by partial evaporation, distillation or by osmosis, under very delicate pressure and temperature conditions. The techniques are much improved and allow not to alter the tastes and aromas of the wine but extract only the alcoholic part.

Why choose a wine without alcohol

Alcohol-free wine has many advantages and here we are going to list a few:

  • everyone can enjoy (excluding diabetic patients). Even pregnant women. Women expecting a baby have not to drink alcohol, but they have not to forgive the taste!
  • Most of the beneficial substances of the wine are not removed.Polyphenols such as resveratrol with antioxidant, antitumor, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory properties. Or polyphenols that can increase the production of endorphins in the brain, improving mood and fighting depression. Antioxidant polyphenols such as quercetin which, especially in women, as a prevention would be able to block estrogens, often the cause of breast or colon cancer in women. Thanks to the antioxidant properties, polyphenols can slow down the aging process in general and specifically, especially for women, that of bones, preventing osteoporosis. All these substances are not removed from the dealcoholization process.
  • It has a reduced value of calories: analyzes indicate that 100 ml of dealcoholised wine returns from 15 to 18 Kcal;
  • You can drive if you have drunk Alcohol-free wine, you can enjoy the full bottle! and drive!
  • It is allowed in states with religious restrictions (see Arab countries) and it is well seen in health-conscious countries, such as Northern Europe.

In three months we will have the bottles available for sale: the quantity is limited, I invite you to book them if you would like some!

Palio Recioto Amarone 2020 Wine Festival

Palio del Recioto e dell’Amarone CANCELLATO

The 6th of March the city council decided to definitively lend the PALIO DEL RECIOTO AND AMARONE 2020 scheduled for the Easter holidays.

The ongoing emergency and the measures required by the government to contain the risk of contagion at this point no longer leave any useful organizational space for the promoters.

It is a renunciation that costs more than the other concerns regards the large annual party of the community of Negrar di Valpolicella, relatively more than all
others to traditions and experience.
