Cheers to Zero % ABV Wines

Jan 05, 2024

Decidedly a steadfast tradition nowadays, Dry January is shaping up to be more popular than ever this year. Fortunately, the world of quality non-alcoholic beverages continues to surge with demand. There are many reasons and occasions to enjoy a zero-proof glass beyond January, and whatever yours may be, your drink options are now prolific! This week we’re sharing some of our favorite non-alcoholic wines to enjoy any time of the year.

ODDBIRD: Sparkling Rosé $7.99/250mL can

Moa Gürbüzer founded Oddbird in 2013; her goal was to challenge societal norms through elevated adult beverages free of alcohol. We love her 100% tempranillo sparkling rose and think it’s a phenomenal introduction to non-alcoholic wines. This bubbly delight shows characteristics of ripe summertime berries, bright citrus, and a touch of apple sweetness. Best part? This one’s available in 250mL  - friendly for the wallet and a convenient way to give non-alcoholic wine a try. 

WEINGUT LEITZ: Eins Zwei Zero Chardonnay. $21.99

Germany has long been at the forefront of creating quality non-alcoholic products and Weingut Leitz is no exception. They utilize a vacuum-distillation de-alcoholization technique, which helps preserve the important aromatic qualities of a wine. While their riesling has long been a staple of Hop City’s n/a selection, their chardonnay has risen as a staff fave of late. With flavors of lime and apple, pronounced minerality, and racy acidity, this wine is great for lovers of Chablis and other zesty whites.

FRITZ MÜLLER: Müller-Thurgau Alkoholfrei $19.99

Refreshing, uncomplicated, and slightly fizzy, this wine is a winner. We’ve loved Fritz Müller’s alcoholized semi-sparkling wines for years, and we were giddy when this non-alcoholic option became available. Expect fresh, fruity aromas of green apple and grapefruit with just enough residual sugar to lend weight and sweeten your palate.


Another Oddbird offering, this dry red is a blend of grenache, syrah, mourvèdre, and carignan organically grown in the Saint-Chinian region of southern France. With notes of red and black berries, silky tannins, and baking spices, this wine is delicious on its own and fantastic with food. Have a glass with some leftover Hoppin’ John and collard greens or a hearty weeknight stew.

MARTINI & ROSSI: Vibrante Aperitivo $22.99

Vibrante aperitivo is beautifully balanced with notes of Italian bergamot and botanicals. It uses a special blend of white grapes through reverse osmosis, then is infused with sustainably sourced bitters and herbs. This non-alcoholic aperitivo is delicious on its own, but is versatile in that it can be mixed with your favorite liquor or bubbles to make a sessionable cocktail and/or spritz. Saluti to a long evening enjoyed with friends!
