Eisberg Non alcoholic wine

I really didn't like wine, I had tried all sorts and just couldn't stand the taste, but while pregnant with Summer I craved it, not a good thing to crave while pregnant.  After having Summer I started trying wines again, I soon found Rose wine to be my favourite, my preference is the Gallo Family the white Zinfandel or White Grenache.

I got offered to review a bottle of Non alcoholic wine, so I thought why not.  I got given 3 choices, but none of them were Rose,  so I stepped out of my comfort zone and thought I would try the White Chardonnay.  I received the wine really quickly.


Chardonnay Wine only 26 Kcal

It did get put on the side for a good couple of days for the perfect time to try it, the perfect day came when a really good friend came to visit from France, she loves her wines but with breastfeeding she told me she is missing have her glass of wine with her tea and having to wait for the baby who is 9 months old now to go to bed before she can have a glass, her Father in law had got her to try loads of different wines since being in France.   We both wanted a cold drink but not the diet coke, which I had sent Daddy out for earlier, that's when it popped in my head about the Non Alcoholic wine that I had put in the fridge the night earlier.

We got it out, my friend had a good look at the bottle and told me she had never heard of the wine and saying she has drank a fair bit of non alcoholic wine she was surprised. I got two wine glasses down, and poured half a glass each, we sat back in the living room with the children, so we had the cups of coffee/tea the glasses of diet coke now on to the wine.

You can see my friends glass through mine. 

I really didn't think I would like this wine, but I was very surprised when I tried it, It still had the nice taste of Chardonnay without the horrible aftertaste that I find when I do drink white wine.  It smelt really nice as well, which I wasn't expecting, it was a really refreshing wine, the biggest bonus of the wine it hasn't got all the calories you would find in normal white wine, it has 34 Kcal a glass. This is perfect for family parties, designated drivers, or for a midweek drink without the bad head the next day.

You can use the Chardonnay wine for making a mocktail which I was going to do, but we drank it all, whoops, so here the recipe so when you buy the wine you can have a go.

  1. Oh I might have to give this a try I don't drink alcohol at all so this could be a nice alternative. x

  2. I drink quite a bit of wine but have never tried alcohol free wines, sounds like this one would be nice in the mocktail recipe for something a bit different this summer.
