WITH the trend towards a healthier lifestyle and the stricter enforcement of drinking and driving laws, a new era of moderation is upon us. Enter the “mindful drinking” movement started by millennials – the global trend of choosing alcohol-free or low-alcohol drinks for health and social reasons. Alcohol brands are avidly embracing this new breed of consumer who drinks less. In fact, the alcohol-free drinks category is currently the fastest growing beverage sector in South Africa.
Robertson Winery, true to its reputation for pioneering, innovation and forward thinking, launched its first two non-alcoholic sparkling wines, both sweet, back in 2012, bringing bubbly drinking rituals to non-alcohol markets. It has now extended this popular range to include a dry non-alcoholic sparkling wine for summer, to open up the brand to a new audience looking for a refreshing non-alcoholic bubbly without excessive sweetness.
Grapes grown in Robertson Winery’s lime-rich soil produce elegant sparkling wines with finesse. The alcohol in this wine has been carefully removed to preserve the fruity aromas and vibrant flavours. Delightfully dry with a vivacious sparkle, gorgeous notes of pear and mandarin come to the fore accompanied by hints of orange blossom and honeysuckle. Refreshing and charmingly drinkable, serve well-chilled to keep the bubbles and flavours at their peak.
The bubbly is perfect for all occasions – poolside sipping, picnics, braais, sundowners at the beach, jovial chats around the table and partying with friends.
All three non-alcoholic sparkling wines available nationally and retail between R50 and R55 per bottle.
