Kylie Minogue wines

Alcohol-free wines are classed as drinks with APV of 0.5% (the same roughly as a ripe banana, orange juice or rye bread). The caveat of course is that doctors say for pregnant/nursing women to avoid any percentage completely. But if you’re teetotal, looking to reduce alcohol or the designated driver, these should suit. And they are far tastier than big brand no-alcohol  wines, and you’re also supporting local artisans and creating real jobs.

Corks are choking hazards, so don’t leave them lying around. Bin securely, chop up and put in your compost bin or send off in bulk to Recorked (or drop off at participating off licenses).

No-alcohol wines are also good for weight loss, as they tend to contain way less calories and also a lot less sugar. All the wines below are also vegan-friendly (free from animal-based fining agents like fish bladder).
