Non-alcoholic bottle shops are popping up everywhere, mocktail lists are getting longer, and zero proof spirits are finally starting to gain popularity. Among these alcohol-free options, non-alcoholic wine has emerged as a popular choice for those looking to enjoy the taste of wine without the effects of alcohol. With a variety of non-alcoholic wines now available on the market, consumers have more options than ever before to choose from.

Best nonalcoholic wine for the most traditional wine-like taste: Leitz Eins Zwei Chardonnay. Another Leitz pick made our experts' list: The Leitz Eins Zwei Zero Sparkling Rosé. These wines are crafted to provide a similar taste experience to traditional wines, making them ideal for wine enthusiasts looking for a non-alcoholic alternative.

Leitz Eins Zwei Zero Sparkling Rosé (0.0% alcohol; dealcoholized wine): This dealcoholized sparkling rosé was sweet and full-bodied compared to its alcoholic counterparts. With notes of peach and floral undertones, it offers a refreshing and enjoyable drinking experience for those seeking a non-alcoholic option.

The nose, again, was jolting, because it just wasn't what I expected at all; it was peachy, hoppy, floral—really very nice, just different from the usual wine aromas. Non-alcoholic wines often surprise drinkers with their unique flavors and profiles, offering a new and exciting twist on traditional wine experiences.

As a wine lover, I'm excited to try new cuvees and sip special things, but there are days when my body needs a break. Non-alcoholic wines provide a great alternative for those looking to enjoy a glass of wine without the alcohol content, allowing for a more balanced approach to drinking.

My favorite is the Gold Crush; it is something that can be enjoyed at any time of year. The slight bitterness of the background from gentian adds depth to the flavor profile, making it a versatile and enjoyable option for any occasion.

As with traditional wines, production will vary based on grape variety and type. “The reds are a big challenge because the lack of alcohol makes it difficult to achieve the same depth and complexity as alcoholic wines. However, with advancements in dealcoholization techniques, non-alcoholic wines are becoming more sophisticated in their flavor profiles.

Unsurprisingly, our favorite non-alcoholic rosé wine was also sparkling. Prima Pavé must be doing something right, because the brand's second offering in the non-alcoholic wine market has already gained popularity among consumers. The sparkling nature of this wine adds a festive touch to any occasion, making it a great choice for celebrations.

A collaboration with San Francisco French chef Dominique Crenn, Pétanque promises “acidity, body, and tannin,” and it's not wrong — this is among the most complex non-alcoholic wines on the market. With a focus on quality ingredients and innovative techniques, Pétanque offers a unique and sophisticated drinking experience for wine enthusiasts.
