Let’s uncork this adventure and pour some joy—without a drop of regret! Ready to see which bottles made the list?

Tasting Notes: What to Expect

Before we jump into the list of non-alcoholic wines, here's what you can expect. Non-alcoholic wines aim to offer a sensory experience akin to their alcoholic counterparts, with distinct flavour profiles that cater to a variety of palates. 

Generally, you'll find these wines to be lighter in body, which can affect the intensity of their flavours. The aromas, though often similar to traditional wines, maybe slightly more subdued. Taste-wise, they strive to replicate the balance and depth you’d expect, with fruit-forward notes, and a clean finish that lacks the warmth alcohol provides. This creates a unique tasting experience that allows for enjoyment without the effects of alcohol.

Here's a look at our top 10 non-alcoholic wines in Australia, carefully chosen for your well-being. We'll provide tasting notes and food pairing tips for each wine, helping you enjoy them to the fullest whether you're pairing with a meal or sipping solo. These wines offer great taste and variety, all without alcohol, making them perfect for any time you want to indulge healthily.

I really enjoyed this wine! I've found it difficult to find an AF red wine that I can drink, so I wasn't sure what to expect as I bought this in a bundle. I drank it at a barbecue lunch & really felt like I was having a wine. I prefer it chilled. I'm ordering again!
