13 Best Non Alcoholic Wines to Try in 2021

13 Best Non Alcoholic Wines for 2021

With a new year right around the corner, it won’t be long before social media feeds everywhere are taken over by friends and family proudly boasting about their choice to participate in Dry January. For those unfamiliar, Dry January is a health and wellness challenge that asks participants to go all 31 days of the month without a drop of alcohol.

 

Dry January is part of the larger sober curious movement that has been steadily growing in popularity…and for good reason. As liquor sales boomed during the first parts of the pandemic, many are looking back on some of their quarantine drinking habits and questioning their choices.

 

But Dry January is not as easy as it sounds. For those of us that are used to pouring an extra full glass of wine several (or let’s be honest, all) nights of the week, cutting out booze completely on January 1 isn’t just a physical challenge, it’s a mental one too.

 

Thankfully, there is a growing list of alcohol-free wines available for those looking to cut back or cut out alcohol from their lives, but still want the comfort of pouring themselves a nice glass at the end of the day. Though many might try and claim that non-alcoholic wine is simply “grape juice,” these individuals could not be more mistaken. Today’s portfolio of alcohol-free wine features a mix of brands and varieties that replicate some of your favorite styles and blends, with complex flavors and smooth finishes that will have you convinced you’re drinking the real thing.
