Summer has finally arrived. Hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather.

We were recently sent a selection of Eisberg's alcohol free wines and myself and Mr.H have been trying them out. Eisberg are one of the UK's best selling alcohol-free wine brand and their range currently includes Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Eisberg are different from other non-alcoholic wine brands because of the way their wines are prepared. Eisberg removes the alcohol at the end of the process rather than leaving it out entirely, which means the taste is retained but without the alcohol units and with just a third of the calories compared to a real glass of wine.

A lot of people are taking to alcohol-free wines for a variety of reasons - driving, pregnancy, age related issues or simply for health. I enjoy my tipple but at times do forego the booze for one or the other reason I have already mentioned earlier. And at such times a non-alcoholic or alcohol-free drink is what I reach out to.

Eisberg alcohol-free wine

Cabernet Sauvignon : With a deep ruby colour and delicate aromas of cherries, this one tasted quite like the real thing. Yes, it did not have the same feeling as drinking a real glass of wine but it was quite good and with only 26 calories in a 125ml glass, this one won me over.

Sauvignon Blanc : This paired very well the pasta salad that I made a while back. The wine has classic gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours, is rich and the flavours are similar to the original wine. The colour was spot-on too. Just like the Cabernet Sauvignon a 125ml serving has only 28 calories making it a great, non-alcoholic drink to accompany your meal.

Chardonnay : With crisp apple flavours, a hint of honey and vanilla, this one makes a good party tipple. I liked it - it is similar to a sweet, fruity white wine. Mr.H did not fancy this one as much as me. He did however like it when used in a mocktail - Vanilla Sunrise. You need to add 100ml of alcohol-free Chardonnay to an ice-filled wine glass. Then add the juice of 1/2 a lemon, 1 tsp of vanilla sugar and a splash of cranberry juice. Garnish with a strawberry and enjoy.

Rosé : A refreshingly juicy, alcohol-free rosé with lovely aromas of ripe strawberries and a subtle hint of cherries, this one pairs best with spicy food. We enjoyed it with naan and spicy Paneer Tikka curry and it was lovely. Mr.H found it a little too sweet, but I felt that it tasted great. It is a nice alternative to the real stuff.

Overall, all the 4 were much better than what I had expected. Yes, they cannot replace a glass of normal wine in terms of the actual taste or the feeling (the alcohol content) but they make for a good alternative for those looking to go alcohol-free. If you are looking for something beyond water and the obvious sugary fruit juices, then try these alcohol-free wines.

Eisberg alcohol-free wines can be purchased from Morrison's and other selected stores for RRP £3.50.

  1. I've never been into alcohol (I don't fancy acting out whilst my senses are inhibited, ha!) but I can see why these would appeal to those who would want to drink something similar to an alcholic drink without the alcohol :)
