FAQ: Alcohol free wine

At JuicyLab we source the base wines for our alcohol free wines in Italy, Spain and Germany. The characters we are looking for in this sourcing process are well defined. Our experience in the technique of vacuum evaporation has made it clear that some wines are more suitable that others. While some of our competitors in the alcohol free business are adding artificial flavours to their wines, we have opted for a more natural approach. Indeed the only additions we apply is sulfur dioxide, concentrated grape must and for the sparkling wines, carbon dioxide.

We travel extensively in wine regions to source as good wine we can for our clients. It's a hard job, but someone has to do it! ;) We believe that it’s mainly the selection of the wineries and vineyards we buy from that makes the alcohol free wines by JuicyLab stand out.

Why is there sugar in your alcohol free wines?

Another factor that is important is the level of sugar in the wines. This is a part that many buyers need to be educated in. We often get request for alcohol free wines with no sugar. This does not exist in the market for a very good reason. It tastes like flavoured water. Absolutely horrible! The alcohol is a very important component of a wine because it gives weight (mouthfeel) to the wine. It also helps with releasing the aromas in your month.

So how much sugar do we add?

We add neutral tasting concentrated grape must to improve the mouthfeel and texture of the wine. This is the most natural way to improve the viscosity of an alcohol free wine. Alternatives like Gummi Arabicum is commonly used by other producers, but we have opted for a more natural approach. The exact amount always depends on the wine, but proximately from 20 to 45 grams per liter.

Are there any trace amounts of alcohol in the wines?

Tes, from 0,1% to 0,3%
