What to drink: Low or no-alcohol wines

Whether you're taking part in Dry January or just trying to cut down on your intake, these low or no-alcohol wines will help see you through.

THE EXPERT: Matthieu Aravantinos at The Grape Variety, Chipstead and Dorking

Pinot Noir Tradition 2018

A classic Pinot displaying intense aromas of raspberry, strawberry. Refreshing and yummy on the palate, this wine will go beautifully with mild cheeses and charcuteries.

Chénas, Chat’au Bonnet Rouge 2019

This 50 years old vineyard produces an aromatic wine displaying notes of cherry and candied fruits – it is juicy and soft with a fresh finish! A very well made light wine that you will enjoy on its own, with charcuteries or pizzas.

Riesling Tradition 2019

From a vineyard in the Alsace taking a more sustainable approach to viticulture. This wine displays aromas of citrus and pineapple, with apple notes on the palate. A dry Riesling with acidity will pair very well with seafood

THE EXPERT: Nik Darlington at Pip of Manor Farm, Seale

Dr Loosen SOBR 0% Sparkling Riesling

Designated driver or cutting back this January? With this fizz you can still celebrate! It’s an alcohol-free sparkling wine we at Pip can very much get behind. It has the ripe fruit flavours you expect from a good Mosel Riesling but with a dry finish and persistent sparkle.

Walt Lø Riesling 0.5%

This is a super refreshing, German Riesling at just 0.5% ABV and a rare alcohol-free wine that gets our seal of approval. Here Walt manages to keep the sweetness in balance (too many such wines are just too sweet for us), giving a fruity yet refreshing experience. Bravo!

Reverie Chenin Blanc 2017

Jacques de Klerk’s day job is making wine at Radford Dale but like many a talented South African winemaker he has a second string to his bow. Reverie is from a single vineyard of Chenin Blanc planted in 1978, “rooted in the purest, crunchy, ancient granite soils I have ever seen, these vines have gone without irrigation their entire life and have grown up tough and hardy”, so says Jacques. Just 350 bottles of the scarce 2017 vintage came to the UK. Those old vines deliver an intensity of flavour so pure and arresting, you won’t notice for a second that this weighs in at just 11% ABV.

THE EXPERT: Rupert Pritchett at Taurus Wines, Bramley

Torres Natureo Red (0% ABV)

Let’s kick off with this 100% Syrah which had been de-alcoholised post fermentation – meaning it has all the characteristics of wine but with none – that’s right, none – of the alcohol. This Spanish red would work well with rich winter stews or roasted red meats.

Torres Natureo White (0% ABV)

From the same producer (as these are the best non-alcohol wines we’ve tasted) comes this white 100% Muscat, which has gorgeous aromas of orange blossom and apple, followed by a smack of citrus on the palate. Great as an aperitif or served with chicken, fish or shell fish.

Torres Natureo Rosé (0.0% ABV)

For those missing their rosé hit but wanting ‘to be good’, there’s this pretty raspberry pink wine from the Natureo range. Its pretty copper highlights lead onto the cherry jam aroma and deliciously smooth finish.

And something a little different ….

Copenhagen Sparkling Tea Blue

Developed by a Danish sommelier to accompany the Michelin-starred food served at his restaurant, this sophisticated blend of 13 different teas, including jasmine and Darjeeling and given a light sparkle makes a very grown-up aperitif for when sparkles are needed, but alcohol isn’t.
